Well, we couldn’t be prouder to be “wine drinking Texans”. The results of a recent major state competition show that Mediterranean varieties and Texas terroir make for a perfect pariing as Tempranillo, Tannat and Viognier varietals were among the top winners.
A huge shout out to the wineries of Texas Fine Wine that collectively won eight gold, six silver and four bronze medals for Texas appellation wines at the prestigious 2015 TEXSOM International Wine Awards.
Texas Monthly, the presenting sponsor, named nine “Best in Show” Texas wines from the competition. Four were among the group of Texas Fine Wine including Bending Branch Winery Estate Tannat 2012 [above], Brennan Vineyards Super Nero 2013, Duchman Family Winery Montepulciano Oswald Vineyard 2012 and this Pedernales Cellars Texas Viognier 2014…
The judges were some of the most experienced wine connoisseurs in the country, further validating that Texas wines not only hold their own, but stand out on the greater world’s wine stage. Cheers!
