The holidays are here and what better time to spend a little extra for a special occasion! Whether you’re shopping for special someone or gathering around the table for a family feast, a nice bottle of wine is always a great way to spread some holiday cheer. I paid a visit to my friend Ralph from the H-E-B Plus in San Antonio and he shared his best gift-able picks.
My Wine Finds:
We’re starting with reds: the Chronology Red Wine. This is a big wine, but it has a softer, rounder finish. You’ll taste rich black current, plum, blackberry, black cherry and a hint of chocolate and spice. $30
Next, is the Auros Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, another big wine that packs a punch. It’s full-bodied with intense dark fruit like black currant, coffee, tobacco and a hint of vanilla. It has a velvety finish like a true Napa Cab. This will pair great with any holiday roast! $50
We’re ending with something sparkling: the Champagne Collet Brut from the Champagne region of France. You’ll smell fruity aromas of peach, grapefruit and lemon with hints of almond. It has a nice minerality and acidity and slight buttery biscuit notes. $40
As always, you can find all of these wines at your local H-E-B. Bonus: Get 10% off your entire purchase when you buy six or more bottles!
