Guests sitting down for the Rodeo Uncorked! Champion Wine Auction Dinner at NRG Center during the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo in March will enjoy the rodeo’s international wine competition’s winning wines — including selections from East Texas’ Kiepersol Vineyards & Winery.
Kiepersol received the "Top Texas Winery" award in one of the largest competitions in the world with more than 2,850 entries from 20 different countries. Texas wineries represented 351 of the entries.
In addition to the Top Texas Winery honor, Kiepersol received six gold and silver awards for their Barrel No. 33, Mengsel, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Artize, and Merlot.
The winning wines are served at the wine and auction dinner and also available for sale during the rodeo’s Champion Wine Garden, open daily March 7-26.
Other East Texas winners in the winery competition and featured at the Houston Rodeo events include White Fox Vineyards, Murchison; Red 55 Winery, Lindale; and Los Pinos Ranch Vineyards, Pittsburg.
