The State Fair of Texas® for 2022 may be over, but fifteen award-winning Blue Ribbon wines representing eleven Texas wineries are now available online! For a limited time, you can bring the Texas winery experience directly to your doorstep. Delivery dates are set to align with the winter holidays, so wine lovers can open a bottle of award-winning Texas wine that pairs perfectly with holiday dinner parties.
Sommly, the direct-to-consumer social marketplace for wine, launched in 2022 to help wine lovers get access to the best wines that are rarely sold in retail stores. The partnership between these eleven wineries and Sommly provides a unique experience for wine lovers. There is no other business that gives consumers the ability to purchase mixed cases of these award-winning wines.
Blue Ribbon Wines were awarded by This is Texas Wine podcast founder and wine educator Shelly Wilfong for the 2022 State Fair of Texas beer and wine garden. The curated selection of Blue Ribbon wines was designed to offer variety, quality, and value during the busiest gathering time of the year. Many of these wines are made in small quantities and cannot be found in retail locations.
For ease, Sommly’s sommeliers have curated several cases. This is a great opportunity to stock up on wine for your cellar, shop for hard-to-gift friends, holiday dinner parties, or corporate gifts.
“It was my pleasure to select the Blue Ribbon wines for the 2022 State Fair of Texas. I’m thrilled that these wines are now available beyond the fairgrounds. Texas wine drinkers will be thrilled with both the quality and variety available on Sommly.” – Shelly Wilfong, Founder and Host, This Is Texas Wine podcast
“Texas agriculture is an important part of the State Fair of Texas’ mission, and a big part of Texas agriculture is Texas wine. We are proud that so many people sample Texas wine in our wine garden. It is our pleasure to showcase the products of exceptional Texas grape growers and winemakers. Now through this partnership, Blue Ribbon wines can be enjoyed at home.” – Jennifer Schuder, SVP – Marketing, State Fair of Texas
