Springtime wines are on the mind! Wine Manager Michael Catalano at The H-E-B Cellar at San Felipe shares his picks for the new season, beginning with a beautiful rosé I’ve had my eye on…
Le Charmel Côtes de Provence Rosé
Dry | Crisp | Acidic
A delicate French rosé made from a 5-grape blend using mostly Rhone varietals. Lush aromas of raspberry and orange blossom on the nose with tasting notes of strawberry and pear. Perfect for any occasion this spring–with food or alone! Around $13.
Pairing: Seafood; BBQ
Broadbent Grüner Veltliner
Bright | Elegant | Fruity
Out of Austria, the Grüner Veltliner is a juicy white with plenty of lime, peach and green apple flavors. More body and minerality to this wine.
Pairing: Grilled Vegetables; Salads
Morgon Red Beaujolais
Light | Earthy | Complex
The Morgon is an old, prestigious French estate and one of the ten Beaujolais crus by Monsieur Georges Duboeuf – the father of Beaujolais! A deep red made from Gamay grapes. You’ll taste the dark plum flavors with a touch of herb on the finish. Just $15.98 at H-E-B!
Pairing: Pasta; Chicken
