A new year means new wines — with resolutions in mind! All of these wines are said to promote good health (in moderation, of course). Plus, as an added bonus, they’re all under $20! As always, you can get these bottles (and many more!) at your local H-E-B.
Up first, Sella & Mosca Cannonau Di Sardegn Riserva! People on the island of Sardinia, Italy, where the grenache grapes are from, live well into their 90’s and some age to over a 100. Whether it promotes longevity or not, you’ll taste plenty of blackberries on this wine, a hint of tobacco and white pepper. It’s medium-bodied and would pair beautifully with a variety of foods like roast meats — even chicken. $14
Next, another wine said to promote good health — the Bodega Garzon Tannat Reserva from Uruguay, Argentina. Tannats are said to be one of the healthiest grape varietals. This wine is big and bold, but with a smooth, pleasing finish. It’s perfect for any meat coming off your grill! $18
And chardonnay fans, we didn’t forget you! Let us introduce you to the Paris Valley Road Chardonnay from California. You’ll taste crisp apples and a hint of melon, along with a slight toasted bread note. The wine is bright and crisp and easy to drink all by itself or perfect for pasta or roast chicken. $14
