The inaugural Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo and Botanical Research Institute of Texas Sustainable Winegrowing Competition established a unique approach to a Texas wine competition by recognizing both the winery/winemaker and grape grower. Working with BRIT, wineries entered the competition by submitting written applications highlighting their sustainable practices, alongside their Texas wines for evaluation.
Winners included Bending Branch Winery, in Comfort, Tallent Vineyards of Mason,. Nice Winery, in Houston, and Alta Mira Vineyards of Anderson. The top winning wineries were awarded for their sustainable practices in the vineyard and other areas of operation in addition to the wines they submitted to a blind tasting.
Applicants outlined their efforts boosting sustainability across five areas: vineyard management, winemaking, employee practices, customer service and social responsibility.
