Last night was the 2019 Houston Livestock and Rodeo Best Bites Competition. Clint & Alexis were there to serve our Texas Class Champion winning wines: 2016 Dugout, 2017 Gewürztraminer, and 2016 Petit Verdot. Something for everyone a red Cabernet Sauvignon wine blend, a semi-sweet spicy white wine, and deep red varietal wine.

The event was a spectacular celebration of great food and wine.

You can read more about the food winners from the Houston Food Finder article here.

Here is a full line up of our winning wines from the Houston Rodeo Uncorked! International Wine Competition.
