Seriously. Texas Wine.
Nothing says Seriously. Texas Wine than a stock show and rodeo wine competition, ya’ll. And we’re coming hot out of the chute with this one – Pedernales Cellars won Best of Herd Texas Winery at the 14th annual San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo wine competition this month! Now that deserves a “yee haw!”
The competition included more than 900 wines from across the United States and around the world. While we love a friendly showdown with our fellow Texas wineries, we are always especially proud to stand on an international stage. This year we poured our Texas wine alongside wineries from Napa Valley, Paso Robles, the Provence region of France, and Italy, among many others. Entries are judged by a highly experienced panel that selects the award-winning wines by varietal.
Judges awarded medals to all eight wines Pedernales Cellars entered into the competition, including Texas Reserve Class champion / Double Gold for our 2020 Valhalla, and gold medals for our 2020 Malbec, 2020 Tempranillo, and our 2022 Viognier Reserve. Full list of winners is below, if you’d like to see.
Wineries selected as Top 14 Champion Wines will be featured during the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo Champion Wine Auction & Dinner scheduled for Thursday, November 16, 2023 at the Shrine Auditorium in San Antonio, TX. Lasso those tickets now so we can pour you a winning glass.
