We’ve got a lot to celebrate in the coming weeks and you don’t want to arrive empty-handed at your next party! An easy and guaranteed-to-please gift is a bottle of wine. Find our picks here and remember that everything can be found at your local H-E-B
Let’s start with bubbles! I love a good sparkling any time of year, especially bubbles from France. However, it can be so expensive to buy a true Champagne. My solution? The Chateau de Villelongue Cremant de Limoux. Made near the champagne region of France, monks have been making wine here since the 1500’s. This sparkler is fabulous to this day and can hold its own when compared to fine champagne – and for less than half the price! $20
Next, is the La Storia Chardonnay from the Russian River Valley. This wine is beautifully balanced with ripe apples, pears and tropical fruit. You’ll get a hint of vanilla that comes from the oak barrel aging. This wine will pair beautifully with anything on your holiday table. $20
Cabernet fans: the Amici Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Vintners Reserve from Napa Valley is for you. It has layers of cherries, blackberries and cassis with a hint of vanilla and chocolate on the finish. This wine is a special one – perfect for celebratory dinners $40
As always, all of these bottles (and many more!) can be found at your local H-E-B.
