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

This week we’re highlighting wines made in some of the largest organic wineries in Italy. First up is the Fontanafredda Briccotondo Langhe Arneis, a 100% Arneis varietal harvested in the largest certified organic winery in Peidmont. You might notice this wine conjures up exotic fruit and ripe pears. It’s soft, sweet and nicely mouth-filling on the palate, with a crisp freshness. These flavors pair well with fish, hors-d’oeuvres, light starters, risotto and pasta. At $14, we think this wine is a steal.

The second bottle is Rosso Di Montalcino Col D’Orcia, a deep ruby red color with violet hues made in the largest organic wine producing farm in Tuscancy. This wine has fruity aromas and has pleasant tannins on the palate. It pairs perfect with a charcuterie board and is $23.

Now through October 5th, you can get 10% off Italian wines at H‑E‑B!
