Dairy farmers have known for centuries that cheese reaches its peak potency in a cool, dark place, as letting it doze in a warm patch of sunlight leaves it with a feline lethargy. Unleash the power of a properly aged cheese with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of artisanal cheese, wine, and gourmet Italian groceries at Spuntino located in Cow Hallow.
Spuntino offers a multitude of handpicked, delectable deli options, including a rotating menu of more than 50 artisanal cheeses, cured meats, and gourmet grocery items as well as imported wines from small producers in Italy, France, and Spain. Grab a bottle of crisp, fruity Ceago sauvignon blanc ($17) to pair with a hunk of creamy Cypress Grove Humboldt Fog goat cheese ($22.50/lb), or marry an imported bottle of L’ Ancien Beaujolais ($18) with a wedge of Ubriaco del Piave, a cow's milk cheese with a dark-purplish rind, due to a youthful soaking in red wine ($26.99/lb). Smash a Detroit St. Brick (chèvre speckled with green peppercorns, $28.99/lb) through passing mouth windows, or team up with a quaff of Parrina Bianco (a trebbiano, chardonnay, and sauvignon blanc blend, $15).
Italian for “little snack,” Spuntino settles rumbling stomachs with fresh-grilled panini, such as the roasted turkey with sun-dried-tomato aioli, fontina, and arugula, as well as gourmet grocery items for entertaining friends, family, and runaway circus performers. Grab handcrafted olive oils, pastas, and custom gift baskets as well as truffle salt ($19.99), Nocilata (Italian and organic, similar to Nutella, $6.99), and other hard-to-find imports.
