Texas Wines Outshine Other States at the San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition
Great news for the Texas wine industry! This year, Texas topped all states except for California with “Best of Class” awards for seven Texas appellation wines at the prestigious San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition. One of those is Brennan Vineyards, which was awarded Best of Class for its 2015 Reserve Viognier. The competition also awarded gold medals to Brennan (2), Duchman Family Winery and Spicewood Vineyards. This competition is the largest competition of American wines in the world, with 7,000 entries from 28 states.
“This year, Texas wineries won more medals–including some of the top awards in the 2017 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition–than ever before,” said Bob Fraser, San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition executive director. “It is not surprising to me, as I recently visited the Texas Wine Country and was completely impressed with the quality of their wines.”
