TEXSOM Awards 2023: A Record-Breaking Year


The 2023 TEXSOM Awards were a record-breaking year, with 1,677 medals awarded to wines from around the world. The judges were impressed with the quality of the entries, and they awarded a total of 19 Judges' Selection medals, 76 Platinum medals, 233 Gold medals, 676 Silver medals, and 673 Bronze medals.

The TEXSOM Awards is one of the most prestigious wine competitions in the United States, and it is a great way to celebrate the diversity and quality of wines from around the world. The competition is also a great way to support Texas winemakers, who are continuing to produce award-winning wines.

The TEXSOM Awards also features a unique behind-the-scenes opportunity called TEXSOM Retreat. Retreat Scholars are trade professionals selected by an application process, who receive a scholarship, specialized education in the form of seminars and tastings, and mentorship from experienced writers and journalists on creating professional tasting notes that will showcase award-winning entrants in Featured Wine promotions on the TEXSOM website and social media feeds throughout the year. By entering submissions in the TEXSOM Awards, entrants support the education and growth of these future tastemakers and benefit from increased exposure to this key audience.

The TEXSOM Awards are a great way to learn more about Texas wine. The competition showcases the best of what Texas wine has to offer, and it is a great way to find new and exciting wines to try.

Congratulations to Enoch's Stomp Winery for winning the most points for a Texas winery in this competition!
