Lone Star International Wine Competition

2012 was Presque Isle Wine Cellars’ first foray to Texas, one of the real up and coming wine producing states in the country, and we did indeed mess with Texas. The Lone Star Wine Competition, as it had been known from its inception in 1984, was limited to Texas Wines and Texas Wineries. In 2004 the Board of Directors of the Texas Wine and Grape Growers Association (TWGGA) made the decision to expand the competition to include all international and national commercial wineries.

The competition committee provides news releases of the winners to the major national and international wire services and to all major print and electronic media in the communities of participating winners. All Texas wine distributors, industry professionals and major retailers also receive notification.

The Grapevine Wine Pouring Society provides the expertise and personnel to put on this grand competition along with an experienced panel of judges primarily from the Dallas/Fort Worth, Austin and Houston Metropolitan area. Judges are carefully selected for their varietal knowledge and years of experience and expertise.

This is a prestigious and truly international competition where our wines are not judged only against other wines from this region, but against wines from around the world. Winning awards here is a testament to the quality of the wines we produce, and evidence that our wines can hold their own against any other wines from anyplace in the world.
