I LOVE Moscato wine. And, I LOVE cheese. So, basically I made this recipe to have reason to eat cheese & drink Moscato! I especially like this appetizer in the fall, although I don't know why. I made this last year for Thanksgiving, and it was a nice munchie before the big dinner. Serve with crackers or toasted pitas. I like to serve this w/ toasted garlic bagel chips.

The gorgonzola cheese really gets your attention, and the tasty wine keeps you coming back for more! I can't wait to serve this at my next neighborhood gathering.

    Mix the cream cheese & Gorgonzola. Add cheddar & mix again. Stir in the wine. It will now be very easy to mix! Add more/less wine to your taste. I usually go w/ 3 Tbsp, but you may want to start with 2 Tbsp & keep going from there.
