Whether you’re hosting the family or keeping it small this holiday, you’re probably planning on pouring a bottle of wine to celebrate. Consider switching up your usual purchase with one of Tanji’s new holiday wine finds. As always, you can get these bottles (and many more!) at your local H-E-B.
With the holidays on the horizon, you’ll need a go-to sparkling for the celebrations. The Barone Pizzini Animante is a fantastic Franciacorta, the Champagne of Italy, and produced using the same traditional methods as the popular French wine. $30
Next, the Predator Cabernet Sauvignon, an easy-drinking light Cab with notes of dark berries, cinnamon and toasty oak. This bottle will pair well with your holiday roast, but also drinks nicely on its own. $15
Break out of your Cabinet habit for the Matarromera Criansza from one of my favorite wine regions, Spain. This luscious wine has an enticing smoky nose and is aged in both French and American oak. It will pair beautifully with any main course on your holiday table: Glazed ham, beef tenderloin, roast chicken — you name it. $30
