Planning out your holiday season can be an undertaking. Coordinating guests, figuring out your menu and getting the house in company-ready shape—the to-do list can be never ending! This year, let Goodtaste and H-E-B do you a favor and handle the wine. Read on for extra-special, celebration-worthy bottles that are sure to please everyone. As always, all of these bottles (and many more!) can be found at your local H-E-B.
Chablis is a Chardonnay that comes from Northwest Burgundy, but isn’t aged in oak like a lot of our American Chardonnays. The Joseph Drouhin Chablis Domaine de Vaudon is bright with juicy notes of apples and pears. It has a bright acidity so it will be great with cheese, pasta, turkey and side dishes of all kinds. $24
The Trimbach Pinot Noir is soft and from beautiful Alsace, France. This pinot is balanced with nice acidity and notes of crushed strawberry with a hint of raspberry. A perfect choice for your holiday table. $25
The ultimate Pinot Noir for our table needs to be elegant and refined. We look for delicate layers of flavor and tons of finesse—and we get all of that in the Portlandia Momtazi Pinot Noir. Bing cherries, cocoa and a hint of spice this velvety smooth on your palate with nice acidity. This wine won’t dominate the food, it will compliment it. $40
