Wedding Oak Winery Wins at 2016 San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo Champion Wines

4th Nov 2015 @ 13:51 by Matt

We are humbled to be awarded a bronze medal for 2013 Tioja, Texas High Plains at the 7th Annual San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo Wine Competition held in October, 2015. In just over three years, Wedding Oak Winery has been recognized with 27 prestigious awards in international competitions. It’s quite an honor.

The name of our Tioja is play on words calling on the wine’s Spanish Rioja heritage and its Texas roots. Like a wine from Rioja, our wine is made with a majority of Tempranillo grapes. Tioja is made by our winemaker, Penny Adams, with a blend of Tempranillo from the Texas Hill Country along with 15 percent Tannat the Texas Hill Country and 11 percent Cabernet Sauvignon from the Texas High Plains. The light garnet color and aromas of dark cherry layered with a touch of smoke and vanilla are reminiscent of a Spanish Tempranillo. This medium bodied wine bursts with smoky black cherry flavors that pair with burgers, venison and barbecue.

Our Tioja has previously won silver medals at the 2015 TEXSOM International Wine Awards and the 2015 Lone Star International Wine Competition Awards.

The San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo Wine Competition received the largest number of entries to date, with more than 1,000 entries evaluated by 70 judges, including wine industry professionals, restaurant owners, and wine aficionados.
