Food Spotlight: Di Bruno Bros Booze-Centric Cheese Spreads



PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 21, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Di Bruno Bros. has launched two incredible new cheese spreads– Pinot Grigio & Fig or Smoked Gouda & Beer with Pimentos. These two unique flavors are the first new spreads that we've added to the lineup in over a decade!

Di Bruno Bros. cheese spreads are made with real Wisconsin cheddar, and are inspired by family recipes and over 75+ years of Culinary Pioneering.  They are sold in the Philadelphia retail shops, in national grocery partners and on dibruno.com to ship anywhere in the country.

The line of spreads includes six other options—Spicy Abbruzze, Roasted Garlic & Herb, Port Wine, Gorgonzola, Provolone & Chianti, and Cheddar & Horseradish.

Emilio Mignucci, third-generation owner and VP of Culinary Pioneering says, "Our customers across the country, and especially Philadelphia, love the original six spreads and people were asking for more. I'm excited that we were able to bring them two, incredible new spreads that really represent Culinary Pioneering and who we are today, just in time for the holiday season. We think our grandparents would be proud.  And, while it's a proud moment for us, it's been even more fun for us to work together with our team and create something new and delicious for our customers."


Pinot Grigio & Fig Cheese Spread (with Aged Cheddar, White Wine, and Sweet Fig Cheese Spread) is a sweet and savory spread with real pieces of fig that can be enjoyed alongside Di Bruno Bros. new Sea Salt crostini, paired with salumi, and added to any savory dessert or grilled cheese. As the name suggests, it's great paired with a glass of white wine.

Smoked Gouda & Beer with Pimentos Cheese Spread (a nutty smoked Gouda cheese spread, with pimentos & a splash of brown ale) is a nod to the traditional "beer & cheese" spread and adds a little smokiness to any dish. The Di Bruno Bros. family enjoys with their twice-baked crostini, on any sandwich, and spread on Di Bruno Bros. new Grissini breadsticks and wrapped in prosciutto. It's also great alongside a pint of your favorite beer.

Other recently launched, and complementary, products include Di Bruno Bros. Grissini, or breadsticks, as well as the introduction of Sea Salt Crostini to the line of twice-baked crostini.

Six fun recipes for how to use cheese spreads can be found on the Di Bruno Bros. blog.


The current line of spreads is inspired by family recipes that were once made in the Italian kitchen of Di Bruno Bros. founders Danny and Joe Di Bruno, over 50 years ago. The new spread flavors and creation process symbolize the "new era" of Di Bruno Bros., involving a team of Certified Cheese Professionals, and current, third-generation owners.  The goal was to create flavors that would bring the Di Bruno Bros. mantra of "culinary pioneering" to life with flavors that are delicious, exciting, and something you wouldn't typically expect.
