HOUSTON – Hi everyone! Another Wine Club Wednesday Poured by H‑E‑B is in the books!

It’s Courtney, here! I know it’s hot but don’t be afraid to pour yourself a nice glass of red this summer. In today’s Wine Club we are highlighting a Malbec that’s under $10.

Astica Malbec is the bottle you’re looking for and get this, it pairs perfectly for your next backyard cookout.

Astica is a great value sourced from hand-harvested fruit from vineyards throughout Argentina’s booming region of Cuyo, just east of the Andes Mountains.

It is 100% Malbec. A pure, fruit driven example of Argentina’s signature grape.

And you can take this fun fact with you to the dining table as you open the bottle, the vibrant, eye-catching packaging fits with the meaning of Astica, which is an indigenous word for ‘flower’ in Argentina.

This is just a $7 bottle! If you don’t have a wine refrigerator, don’t be afraid to pop this bottle in the refrigerator to give it a slight chill before opening.  If you’re curious about the fastest way to chill a bottle I posted a fascinating article on my Facebook page.

Happy sipping!
