Our Producers Win 2021 TEXSOM Awards!

We’re delighted to report that, once again, several of our producers have won gold, silver and/or bronze medals at the 2021 TEXSOM International Wine Awards!

The TEXSOM organization was founded in 2005 as the Texas Sommelier Conference to help promote professional wine service standards, further beverage education, and raise public awareness about professional standards and certifications for sommeliers.

In 2014, the TEXSOM spirit of camaraderie and community expanded from an annual conference and sommelier competition to include a wine awards of international scope. Since then, the competition has grown in number of entries, diversity of wines, recognition and reach of results with sommeliers. TEXSOM IWA has a global quality standard and is recognized as the most selective competition in the United States due to its roster of international judges who participate.
