Duchman Family Dolcetto helps Texas to beat New York in Grape & Gridiron Classic
The Duchman Family 2008 Dolcetto was just one of the 8 Texas wines that helped to rack up the winning score (8 to 3) in the 2010 Grape and Gridiron Classic held yesterday at the El Centro College Food and Hospitality Institute in Dallas.
The competition was inspired by yesterday’s Cowboys-Giants game where the home team didn’t fare as well (final 41-35), pitting Texas vs. New York wines in a blind tasting.
That’s the author of Vintage Texas, top Texas wine blogger Russ Kane (right), who sat as one the judges.
Check out Russ’s post today on the event, as well as this post at the D Magazine blog, where the editors clearly relished the clear-cut victory with the title “Texas Trounces New York in Monday Night’s Grape & Gridiron Face Off.”
