Refreshing wines of summer

Print Friendly

When the weather gets hot, it’s time to look for a little lighter fare. It’s a Texas tradition to enjoy the outdoors and head to the grill this time of year. And that’s when you need one of these wines which are perfect ‘summer refreshers’. Matt Wheeler, H-E-B’s Sommelier has a rundown of some of the best wines for summer, including a Sauvignon Blanc out of Napa Valley, the ultimate warm weather wine…a dry and light Rosé, plus an amazing Cab. And right now, you can save 10% on Cabernets with H-E-B’s Cabs for Dads sale. Pair that with the 10% savings when you buy six bottles, and you can really save!

Tanji,
Estancia is a good wine but it does not hold a candle to White Oak from Sonoma, Napa, Healdsburg. I live in Pebble Beach so I know because Estancia is Monterey County. Who picks your wine selections? I have ideas for you.Call me or e-mail me. White Oak is also sold at HEB and is a $60-$70 wine for $20-$30. Tom Jordan ( a billionaire ) of Jordan Winery—sells his Chardonnay for over $70 buys 95% of all White Oak Vineyard Grapes. Wine is 80% grapes and terroir and 20% winemaker. Need I say more? So whose grapes are in Jordan wine? Best regards, Bob

Hi Tanji,
I have actually wanted to respond to you many times before now. Don Harris told me that he thought we needed to meet. But, I am in need of your advice in the worst way. My daughter’s wedding is in five days and we need to select a wine to serve to about 200 people. What would you recommend for a large crowd? The reception is outdoors at night. We tested a Merlot by Bogle Vineyards and we found it to be heavy and tart. Please let me know your recommendations ASAP…we could use some guidance!! Then after the wedding…maybe someday we can meet as Don suggested!!

    Sounds like you’re looking for an affordable red. Pinot Noir is probably a good choice. I would suggest Angeline for about $13 a bottle or HobNob which is priced about the same. Another good choice would be a pinot noir by Chevriot. It’s actually a second label for La Crema made exclusively for HEB. Both of the other wines are available at HEB. And, by all means, I’d love to meet you. Any friend of Don’s is a friend of mine!!!
