TEXSOM International Wine Awards

Last week, I received an invitation to judge at the TEXSOM International Wine Awards in 2016. This is one of the best in the country, for so many reasons. The judges really draw on the connections of James Tidwell MS, and Drew Hendricks MS, with a strong backbone of legacy from Becky Murphy. Those are three of our favorite people in the wine business, and their friends, quite often, turn out to be our friends, too—with enough MS (Master Sommelier) and MW (Master of Wine) post-nomials to fill a couple of large wine glasses.

And the organization, again based on Becky’s initial framework, is smooth and efficient. That makes being a judge a lot easier, and a lot more fun.

And then there’s the scene in Dallas, with great food in all kinds of different locations and styles.

For those of you who think Texas and wine don’t go together, you don’t know what you’re missing.
