Now that the holidays are behind us and we are well into January it’s time to get our mind, body, and spirit ready for all things Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo! This 86 year-old event promotes agriculture by hosting family-friendly experiences that educate and entertain the public, supports Texas youth, showcases Western heritage, and provides year-round educational support within the community. Since there are so many events during the three-weeks of rodeo season,  I wanted to highlight some of our favorite events that are wine-focused because you guys know we love all things wine!

Roundup & Best Bites Competition

This is one of our favorite events of the year! During this premiere pre-event, guests get to sample over 400 award-winning wines, but you’ll also get an opportunity to enjoy first-hand the Grand Champion and Reserve Grand Champion wines from the 2019 International Wine Competition that took place this past November. In addition to getting to sample the fabulous wines, attendees will enjoy bites from 100 top Houston restaurants that are all competing for “Best Bites”.

Champion Wine Garden

Did someone say wine for days? That’s what you get when you enter the Champion Wine Garden. This wine lovers utopia features more than 70 wines from the 2019 International Wine Competition. So make an event out of it and enjoy a seminar or stop by before the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo and enjoy a glass or two.

Champion Wine Auction & Dinner

This event provides an unforgettable night of sips and nosh for a great cause! The night starts with a top-notch cocktail hour, including an exciting silent auction where guests can bid on unique wines, unforgettable trips, and other great items. From there guest enjoy a seated dinner with wine pairings and get the opportunity to bid on award-winning wines that will go toward the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo scholarships.

But Wait There’s More…

Have you heard about the Double-Sampler Case?!?! This is an extra special offering for wine lovers. The 12-bottle case of award-winning wines comes in a “Rodeo Uncorked!” branded commemorative wooden case making it a great gift and/or ideal for any wine collection.
