Wedding Oak Winery: Celebrating Seven Award-Winning Wines

Wedding Oak Winery is proud to announce that our wines have once again received recognition for their excellence in winemaking. We are thrilled to have been honored with seven awards at the esteemed 2024 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition, solidifying our position as one of the top wineries in Texas.

This year’s competition featured a blind tasting format, where more than 5,500 wines from nearly 1,000 wineries were evaluated by a panel of fifty judges. The San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition is renowned for its esteemed reputation in the industry, attracting wine enthusiasts, connoisseurs, and professionals from all over the nation.

Our standout wine of the competition was the 2021 Tempranillo, which received the prestigious “Best of Class” title. This exceptional wine showcases bold tannic structure and bright acidity, with notes of black fruit and smoke on the nose. It pairs perfectly with roasted duck or Manchego cheese.

The 2022 Roussanne also received top recognition with a Double Gold medal. This beautiful oak-aged white wine captivates with aromas of banana foster, tangy lime zest, and delicate honeycomb. On the palate, vibrant lemongrass flavors take center stage, accompanied by refreshing grapefruit zest. It was named the Top Texas White Wine at the 2023 San Antonio Rodeo and earned a Double Gold at the San Francisco International Wine Competition.

Our 2022 Riesling, made from grapes grown in the Texas High Plains, demonstrates our prowess in producing exceptional white wines. With notes of tropical guava, strawberry-kiwi, and bright lemon zest, this wine offers a perfect balance of semi-sweetness and refreshing acidity.

The 2021 Sangiovese and the 2021 Primitivo both secured gold medals, further showcasing our commitment to excellence. The Sangiovese delights with notes of almond, black pepper, and cardamom, while the Primitivo offers aromas of chocolate, smoke, and black plum. These limited-production wines are a testament to our dedication to craftsmanship.

Rounding out our award-winning wines are the 2021 Wedding Oak Winery Red Wind (Silver) and the 2022 Wedding Oak Winery Castanet (Bronze). These wines exemplify the complexity and character that we strive for in each bottle.

We are incredibly honored to have received these prestigious awards, which reflect our commitment to producing wines of distinction. We invite you to experience the quality and craftsmanship of Wedding Oak Winery’s award-winning wines by ordering online or visiting one of our three tasting rooms in Burnet, Fredericksburg, and San Saba, Texas.
