Solaro Estate Winery, Austin – Houston named “Texas Winery of the Year”

“This Year’s Wine Competition Once Again Sets Unparalleled Standards and Uncovers the World’s Best Wines … from the United States and over 30 countries from all over the world. The NYIWC is the only major International Wine Competition to be judged solely by trade buyers. Each wine is judged by its category and retail price. All participating judges have purchasing power through their stores, restaurants, distribution networks, which results in their ability to have a direct impact on brand sales. Held at the 3 West Club in midtown Manhattan, this year’s impressive judging panel included buyers from top retail stores, sommeliers, distributors, and importers. The judges were excited by the high quality of known wines submitted as well as the large number of new wines looking to break into the New York market and the United States as well. All wines are judged in a blind tasting method and are sampled for appearance, aroma, taste, mouth feel, and finish. Each judging panel confers together to come to a unanimous decision. The judges make their decisions knowing that their peers (other trade buyers in New York and throughout the world) will also be making real buying decisions based upon the medals awarded at this particular competition.” In stiff International Competition, Solaro Estate Winery received two International Awards.

Solaro Estate Barbera 2011 (Estate Grown) and Solaro Estate Reserve Tempranillo 2012 wines brought Medals back to Texas. Attaining the title of “Texas Winery of the Year” places Solaro Estate Winery in good company.
