Having been born and raised in the Lone Star State, I’m biased. I believe Texans are truly some of the most amazing people on the planet. I love our can-do attitude and strong work ethic.
It comes as no surprise that our Texas wines are quickly gaining worldwide acclaim…
For instance, the 2012 Pedernales Cellars Viognier Reserve from the Texas Hill Country [Left] recently won Grand Gold at a major international wine competition in Lyon, France – the ONLY U.S. winery to receive top honors!
There’s more. Bending Branch’s 2010 Tannat (said to be the healthiest wine) won a gold medal at the Dallas Morning News & TexSom International Wine Competition and another Gold Medal at the 2013 Long Star International Wine Competition.
Whether you’re already a big fan of Texas wines or curious to try some of the best, there’s an event in April you’ll want to put on your calendar. The beautiful La Cantera Hill Country Resort is hosting a Celebration of Texas Top Wines with tastings of Texas’ best, plus a wonderful wine pairing dinner where the Lone Star’s Gold Medal wines will be featured, along with the new stars in the Texas wine world.
La Cantera Sommelier Steven Krueger is one of the foremost experts on Texas wines in the country, and he’ll be our wine guide throughout the weekend. The events kick-off with a wine tasting on Saturday afternoon, April 12, on the beautiful grounds of the resort.
Highlighted wineries include: Pedernales Cellars, Bending Branch, Lewis Wines and Hye Meadow Winery. Each winery will have their own station and will provide a taste and mingle experience for guests.
That evening, Francesca’s at Sunset will be the setting for a four course wine dinner featuring Texas’ Gold Medal wines paired with some of Texas finest cuisine. The following morning the treats continue for Sunday Brunch at Steinheimer’s Lounge, complete with a Texas Vodka Bloody Mary display.
