As everyone in Houston knows: March means Rodeo. One of the largest rodeos in the world, the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, kicked off this week, but for me, “rodeo season” begins in November. That’s when I, along with another 100 or so judges, get together for a long weekend of judging wine for the HLSR’s wine competition, often referred to as “Rodeo Uncorked.”
In this month’s Fort Bend Focus, I chronicle what it is like to be a judge at one of the nation’s largest wine competitions, which I have done for six of the last seven years. While it might sound like a lot of fun, it is actually a lot of work; tasting up to 125 (or more) wines a day is taxing. This month, in addition to the 2-page spread, I even get a little love on the cover–a first for me.
