Today, we’re talking about special wines for the holidays. Now that the season of giving is upon us, why not spring for something a little extra to make this year memorable? Here, Fabian from the H-E-B Alon Market in San Antonio shares his wine picks for special occasion giftable bottles.
First, we have the Alpha Omega Chardonnay. This is the unoaked version so you get bright, crisp fruit like pear, peach and citrus. This pairs phenomenally with dishes that are a bit richer. $20
Next, is a pick from Italy — the San Silvestro Patres Barolo. With a high acidity, it’ll go well with stews, tomato dishes and even barbacoa. You’ll taste dried cherries with scents of oak. $30
To finish, you can’t help but celebrate with Champagne. From one of the oldest Champagne houses in France, Piper-Heidsieck has a bit of a yeasty brioche scent with flavors of pineapple, apple and citrus. $36
As always, you can find all of this wine at your local H-E-B. Bonus: Get 10% off your entire purchase when you buy six or more bottles!
