Wine Tasting at the Cookoff

Buy Tickets

The Wine Tasting Event at the 17th Annual Texas Steak Cookoff will feature a wide variety of Texas wines, from sweet and fruity to dry and full-bodied. You’re invited to come, experiment, and see for yourself what has made Texas wineries so popular in recent years. No advance wine knowledge is required. Everybody (21 years or older) is invited to participate.

The event will be held from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm in downtown Hico, the epicenter of the cookoff. Due to the popularity of this event increasing, we now have two large tents connected together to host the crowds and showcase our expected 16 Texas wineries. The cost of $20 includes a commemorative Texas Steak Cookoff wine glass and the opportunity to talk with winery owners and Texas wine-makers. You will be able to buy wine directly from the wineries, either by the glass, bottle or case.

If you are a Texas Winery interested in participating, Sign Up Today as a Winery in the 2020 Texas Steak Cookoff Wine Tasting.
