Description

7th Annual Hill Country Wine Symposium 2021

January 19-20, 2021     |     Horseshoe Bay Resort

The Hill Country Wine Symposium was established in 2015 by Texas Hill Country Wineries.  Symposium includes two days of seminars, lectures and panel discussions with over 25 sessions in four dedicated tracts: Vineyard, Winery, Business & Marketing.  Past speakers have included Tammy Boatright-VingDirect, Al Wagner-Clos du Val, Clark Smith-WineSmith, Don Brady-Robert Hall Winery, Gary Finnan-GFC|Evoke, Doug Beckett-Peachy Canyon Winery, Christophe Hedges-Hedges Family Estate, Dr Andrew Landers-Cornell University, Sandra Hess-DTC Wine Workshops, Dr Gregory Jones-Linfield College, Michael Wangbickler-Balzac Communications and many more.

Symposium also includes an intimate trade show for the opportunity to connect with your current Texas clients while meeting new potential accounts.  With a small ratio of exhibitors to attendees, there is ample time and space to visit with all attendees.  Sponsors, Exhibitors and Attendees,  are able to enjoy the 2 hour networking reception, sharing wines from across Texas and enjoying local cocktails and beer at the end of the first day.

Special presentations during the two lunch breaks include a State of the Texas Wine Industry: Presidents Panel and the Hill Country Wine Industry Scholarship Awards Presentation.  The Presidents Panel will host presidents from Texas Hill Country Wineries, Texas Wine & Grape Growers Association and High Plains Winegrowers Association with updates on each association initiatives and collaborations.  To date, over $25K in scholarships have been awarded to students across Texas working towards a wine industry related field.

The Grape Exchange event has been a priority during the Symposium from the beginning even though the format has changed over the years.  The goal of this tasting event is to connect Growers who have available fruit or Wineries/Crush Operations who have available Texas bulk wine with wineries in need. Two separate Grape Exchange sessions will includes one for available fruit and one for available bulk Texas wine this year in a “live-classifieds” setting.
