They finally came in the mail this week: The gold medal and the Texas-sized belt buckle from the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo 2019 “Rodeo Uncorked” International wine competition where the Villa Sandi Prosecco DOCG Il Fresco not only brought home the gold but was also named “Reserve Class Champion” (see all the results here).
The competition and judging take place each year in November (during the rodeo’s off season). And while we were thrilled to learn the news that one of our wines had received such a prestigious and coveted prize last year, we just couldn’t wait to get our hands on that classic Texan belt buckle, just like the ones that true Texas cowboys wear when they dress up for some proper “honky tonking” (for those of y’all who don’t speak Texan, that means going out on the town).
Thank you to all of the judges and members of the Rodeo Uncorked committee and a Texas-sized thanks to Houston and the great state of Texas!
We simply couldn’t be more proud to wear our belt buckle.
