2013 Madeira Blanc du Bois Wins Gold and Award of Excellence from TEXSOM
We are very proud of our 2013 Madeira Blanc du Bois. It not only won a Gold Medal in the 2016 TEXSOM International Wine Competition, it was awarded a new honor called an Award of Excellence.
In addition to the Bronze, Silver, and Gold medals, TEXSOM International Wine Awards introduced the Awards of Excellence categories this year. Wines selected for Awards of Excellence consideration were nominated within specific categories by the competition judging panels. They instituted a third day of judging on Wednesday, February 24th at the Four Seasons Resort & Club Dallas at Las Colinas with two panels of Awards of Excellence judges tasked to blind taste the nominees and select the winners of Awards of Excellence. Awards of Excellence winners demonstrate quality and unique character that are exceptional even amongst their medal-winning peers.
Congratulations to our Winemaking Team under the leadership of Marta Sanchez Lastowska.
