Texas Wines Win Big In California
You may remember a while back, I posted a story about Walmart's $7.00 bottle of La Moneda Reserva’s Malbec wine taking top honors in a worldwide competition. Well, Texas wines have done it again, with numerous winners...
Texas wine won big at a prestigious California competition. Texas wineries won more awards than ever before at the well-respected San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition last week, taking home a total of 158 medals. According to the Dallas Morning News, those wins included seven double-gold awards, 14 single golds and several silver and bronze medals.
Texas wine also won seven Best of Class awards this year which are prestigious medals given to wines that are voted the top of their class.
The competition is tough with 7,000 wine entries from more than 25 states this year.
Here is a list of the Best of Class Texas winners:
Viognier: Brennan Vineyards 2015 Reserve Viognier, Comanche County, Newburg Vineyard
