ProgramTexas Wine Competition
The inaugural, Texas Sustainable Winegrowing Competition has begun with its 2020 Call for Entries.
The competition will award medals to both grape growers and winemakers recognizing that while some Texas wineries grow their own grapes, others buy grapes from farmers. Both sides of the process are critical to the environmental, social, and economic impact of the final product.
Texas wineries and their grape growers that follow the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission (TABC) 75% rule that says at least 75% of the grapes came from Texas are encouraged to apply.
Applying is easy. Fill out the application and include four bottles of wine, plus the $50 entry fee.
Fees may be paid online at: Texaswinecompetition.
Application submission deadline is September 30, 2019 with winners announced in November.
BRIT has partnered with its neighbor, The Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo to create a unique, Texas-specific wine competition that honors both the winery and grape grower.
The purpose of our competition is to promote sustainable practices within the vineyard and in the winery while raising awareness of the Texas wine industry. Our wine competition is based on wine flavor and the conservation actions that Texas grape growers and wine producers employ. Until now, no other Texas wine competition has honored both the grower and producer.
Applicants compete for the competition’s overall Grand Champion and Grand Reserve awards. Gold, silver, and bronze medals will also be awarded to top placing applications. All winners will be given permission to use FWSSR/BRIT’s award logo artwork on their bottles and in their marketing efforts.
