Women’s History Month: Honoring Women in Wine

HOUSTON – In honor of Women’s History Month, H-E-B is inviting us to raise a glass to help empower women around the world.

They are spot lighting women-owned and women-made wines through virtual tastings streamed live from wineries across the country straight to your home.

What better way to honor and toast to women than by opening a bottle of wine made by one?

You can sign up at HEB.com/winetastings.
