The Texas Wine Tribute will be held in the Grand Hall and Tower Gallery at 636 S. Main St. in Grapevine. The reception and silent auction begin at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $125 per person and advance purchase is required. Each year, a Texas winery is recognized as the recipient of the “Tall in Texas” award for its dedication to, support of and promotion of the Texas wine industry.
Today, there are more than 310 wineries in Texas and the state is the fifth-largest wine producer in the United States. This is in no doubt due to the leadership and efforts of the earliest Texas wineries. With wineries now present in all regions of Texas, the industry panel felt that focusing on a single winery each year would allow for more effective promotion of the achievements of Texas wineries, both statewide and nationally. The Texas Wine Tribute has been one of the most effective platforms for the promotion and marketing of the Texas Wine Industry.
