The Lubbock Avalanche-Journal is helping spread the word about our Blake Eddie Scholarship wine project. Alana Edgin, Business Reporter, and Annie Rice, photographer, visited the farm and winery to learn more about the wine. You can read more about the wine here.

The Binghams approached H-E-B with the idea, and the company eagerly decided to help get the wine in front of their wine stewards and customers, said Charles Rivas, the wine buyer for H-E-B.

“Supporting causes like this are at the heart of what we do at H-E-B,” Rivas said. “When we can honor someone in that process, we get excited to share a story about someone that’s had an impact with not just our industry, but the state’s.

This photo shows the wine at our local, Lubbock, Texas, HEB. It is on the shelf, but not in their computer system yet. You might have to walk in to purchase it rather than have it delivered, but it will be worth it. While you are there ask them to ease your purchases by putting it into their computer system.

If you don’t see the wine at your local H-E-B, ask for it. Letting them know that you are interested in buying it gives them incentive to put it on their shelves for your easy purchases.
