Gifts for a Wine Snob : A Slate Cheese Tray

When enjoying wine with others, we typically have some cheese. For serving the cheese, I have fallen in love with a J.K. Adams slate cheese board my wife gave me last Christmas. It's a reasonable gift, costing $20 to $30, depending on where you get it (BevMo was cheaper than Amazon when I looked).

It looks really cool, has an interesting texture, and is hefty, but not too hefty. The back is covered in felt, so there are no worries about scratching things.

To top it off, you can write on it with chalk, indicating what cheese is where, and easily erase it to correct mistakes.

Add some cool cheese knives and you have a powerful presentation of your cheese, enhancing your wine drinking experience.
