HOUSTON – Hi everyone! Derrick here!

Ahead of the big game, this week’s Wine Club Wednesday, Poured by H‑E‑B, is going to help you step up your party game! No offense to beer, but why not swap that pint for a delicious glass of red wine?


Today we’re featuring a 100% Cabernet with notes of cedar and vanilla on the nose, followed by notes of blackberry, plum and pepper. It’s the William Chris Skeleton Key from Texas High Plains, priced around $20.

After you’ve given the H‑E‑B wine selection a whirl (pro tip: ask their wine specialists if you have any questions about pairings or for their favorite beverages) be sure to swing by the cheese section to find something you and your guests will love. This Cab pairs especially well with Aged Gouda and Parmigiano Reggiano.

So why not score a touchdown with your Game Day spread and kick your food and drink up a notch? And no matter who you’re rooting for, GO TEAM!

Happy sipping!
