Wine Finds for Lighter New Year’s Diets

Find the “delight” in your diet with my wine finds that are perfect for New Year’s diets. They’re made to go with lighter meals. Red wine fans, don’t worry: I’ve got you covered with a brand new Malbec that’s perfect for cold nights and big bowls of beef stew!

Lamberti Extra Dry

Prosecco is a wonderful choice if you’re trying to cut back. They often have less calories than wine and pair beautifully with salads and lighter fare. But I love the Lamberti Extra Dry all by itself. You’ll taste lovely fruit notes on this one, like melons and green apples. It’s about $14 a bottle.

Silk Oak Sauvignon Blanc

I chose another salad wine, because I’m doing a lot of salads this time of year! The Silk Oak Sauvignon Blanc pairs with all kinds of things, like fish and chicken and other lighter fare. It’s a bit of a rounder style Sauvignon Blanc with melon and citrus, even a hint of oak. It’s a great buy at $12 a bottle.

Concho Y Toro Gran Reserva Malbec

Red wine fans, I was so excited to find this one! The Concho Y Toro Gran Reserva Malbec from Chile has beautiful flavors of black plums, blueberries, and dark cherries. It has very soft tannins and is great all by itself. I can imagine cozying up by a fire with a bowl of beef stew and sipping on this wine. You’ll love this one for $14 a bottle.

As always, I found all my wines at H-E-B!
