Kuhlman Cellars recently announced that two of its wines have won medals in the wine competition, Concours de Lyon in France.
Kuhlman Cellars 2017 Sangiovese (Newsom Vineyard) won gold and 2019 Kuhlman Cellars Estate Kuhlmanation White won silver.
This year, the judges of the Concours de Lyon tasted 2,254 wines, awarding only six medals to American vineyards. Kuhlman Cellars was the only Texas winery to win an award this year.
“It’s a huge honor because of the competition itself,” said Chris Cobb, co-founder of Kuhlman Cellars. “The Concours de Lyon is one of the most important and revered wine competitions in France. Most of the entries come from France. So making a Texas wine gold is a huge win for all of us in the Texas wine industry.
The 2019 Kuhlmanation White Estate ($ 29) is a blend of Marsanne and Roussanne, grown on the Kuhlman Cellars Estate in Stonewall. The vines were planted in 2015 and previous vintages of Estate Kuhlmanation White won Concours de Lyon silver in 2018 and gold in 2020. Estate White 2020 will be released later this year.
Sangiovese 2017, Newsom Vineyards, is a herbal, lavender-based wine made from the Brunello clone of Sangiovese and packed with tannins and crisp acidity. The 2017 Sangiovese is currently being retired due to limited supply and is aging in the cellar to be reissued at a later date as an exclusive library wine.
Kuhlman Cellars has bundled the two award-winning wines together for a limited time as part of the Lineup Bundle in Lyon for $ 69.
Shipping is included within Texas with online purchases over $ 99 and the flat rate of $ 20 for orders outside of Texas. For more information, visit kuhlmancellars.com.
