Soak pine nuts in a bowl with white wine and 1/4 cup honey to infuse flavor, at least 30 minutes. Drain.

Mix Gorgonzola cheese and pine nuts together in a bowl. Spread dates open slightly; season the inside of each date with black pepper. Spoon Gorgonzola mixture into each date. Season the outside of each date with salt.

Arrange stuffed dates in a baking dish. Cover with 1 cup honey.

Bake in the preheated oven until warmed, about 10 minutes. Transfer cooked dates to a serving platter. Garnish with almonds.
