This cool weather is right on schedule! October is an AMAZING time for trying new wines, and not just in Napa. Harvest season is winding down in Texas, but the tasting has only just begun. We’ve got some great ideas for you here…



H-E-B Ciao Italia Wine Finds!

The taste of Italy returns to your local H-E-B this October! Our universal love of all things Italian most definitely extends to the country’s wine selection. Here’s a few of those ‘import varietals’ to keep an eye out for during H-E-B’s Ciao Italia celebration…



Autumn-Ready Reds from H-E-B

Tailgate season has arrived, and these spirited reds are in on the festivities. No matter how darn hot it may get in South Texas, the number #1 best selling wine across the board is still domestic red wine. Here are a few special selections to try as we head into fall…



This is White Wine Weather!

A great variety for right now is what it’s all about at H-E-B Montrose Market. Wine Manager Mary Busby and I share a lot of the same tastes and agree that a chilled white is just what we desire for this heat. The following three varietals are just the ticket…



Picking the Perfect Pinot Noir!

Join us on a tasty trip around the globe as we sample several popular pinots you can find right here in the Lone Star State! Not all pinot noirs are created equal. There are varying flavor profiles, depending on the region the grapes are sourced from.



ANY Day for Rosé!

One of my very favorite wine varietals is also one of the most misunderstood… rosés! Classic rosé wines are dry and crisp…not sweet. They’re also generally VERY inexpensive, plus a low alcohol content makes them a perfect summer ‘porch’ wine…



Fruit Forward Wines for August!

It’s HOT! There’s no better time to head indoors to see what’s new with H-E-B in the wine department! Remember to mix or match ANY six bottles and receive an additional discount off your total wine purchase…



Try My Key Lime Pie with Prosecco!

I woke up with a CRAVING for Key lime pie recently! This homemade rendition by yours truly is perfect for pairing with this Enza Prosecco – a crisp, refreshing sparkling with flavors of pear and green apple. Talk about summer love…



New Rosés that Rock for Summer!

More options for one of my favorite summer varietals are in at the H-E-B Montrose Market. One of the biggest misconceptions I hear about rosés is that they’re all too sweet. Not true! For red fans who want a smooth transition to white – reach for rosé!



A Glass & Chat with NY Times Wine Critic Eric Asimov

It was through my love affair with the dining and travel section of the New York Times that I came to be familiar with the work of their wine critic, Eric Asimov. I recently had the pleasure of meeting Eric to interview him for Eric’s knowledge of wine is immense. His passion contagious.


SA HEB Wine July Still

Just Arrived July Wines at H-E-B!

Expect fireworks for these newly shelved wines at your local H-E-B! Something for palates across the board this summer. We’re spotlighting a pricier bottle of red, a popular, inexpensive white and our rosé of right now…



Vacation Reds & More Summer Wine Steals!

No matter if you can’t make the trip, transport your tastebuds to exotic locations with the perfect vacation wine. It’s cheaper than a plane ticket! Where have you always wanted to go? Allow the perfect bottle to take you there – if just for one evening!


SA HEB June Wine1

New wines for summer have arrived in the Wine Dept. at HEB – three in fact that we’ve handpicked for your drinking pleasure! Don’t forget, when you buy ANY six bottles, you’ll still receive a 10% discount off your purchase…



“Anything But Chardonnay” for Summer Wines!

There’s an old wine axiom – ABC (“anything but Chardonnay”) – that we’re keeping in mind heading into the summer months. It’s a playful reminder to seek out some lesser known white wine varietals. Our selections come from all around the world with the majority under $12!
