Deluxe Antipasto Assortment with Wine

Gift this antipasto assortment gift to anyone who loves a good charcuterie board as much as they love a great glass of wine. Gourmet foods, such as sliced artisan salami and cheese, and gourmet crackers and crisps, pair with two reserve Harry & David wines: a pinot noir and a Ross Lane red blend. A bottle of chardonnay finishes off the set. Tuck into garlic-stuffed olives, roasted red peppers with garlic, and mixed nuts while you sip in style.
