The holidays are practically here! It’s not too soon to start prepping for all of your upcoming gatherings with family and friends. To celebrate properly, you’ll need some tested and approved crowd-pleasing bottles. Everything can be found at your local H-E-B!
First, the Sonoma Vineyards Chardonnay made by the popular Rodney Strong Winery. You’ll taste delicate fruits like pear, apple and melon upfront along with a hint of nutmeg on the finish. This wine is bright and well balanced. It will pair beautifully with chicken, fish and, yes, turkey! $17
I’m a big fan of the Matua Valley Lands & Legends Central Otago from New Zealand. New Zealand is known for wonderful pinots with great price points. You’ll taste cherry, a hint of strawberry and just a bit of spice in this wine. This will please almost anyone and will pair beautifully with everything from roast chicken to pork and even hamburgers! $19
You’ll want to put a bottle of this on your table: Nickel and Nickel Stiling Vineyard Chardonnay. This is a full-bodied wine with just the right amount of oakiness and a hint of butter. You likely won’t find a better deal on Nickel and Nickel Chardonnay anywhere because H-E-B purchased all the bottles. $45
As always, all of these bottles (and many more!) can be found at your local H-E-B.
