The Texas Wine and Grape Growers Association hosted the 29th Annual Lone Star International Wine Competition at the Grapevine Convention Center. This year 514 wines from around the world were judged in more than 30 categories by a panel of restaurant owners, sommeliers, chefs and other wine experts from Texas.
Thirty-six Gold, 171 Silver and 203 Bronze medals were awarded to entries from the U.S., South America, Australia, and Spain.
The White Rose’s Norton, with no measurable sulfites, is among the Carthage winery’s soft smooth wines made on French Oak. The Norton won Gold and White Rose’s Sweet Lady in Red won a Bronze medal in the International division of the competition.
Texas is the seventh-largest wine producing state in the nation, with over 250 wineries and 3,700 acres of family-owned vineyard land.
