Texas vs. The World | Featuring Becker Vineyards

  • This location is shown only to members



February: Cabernet Sauvignon - The King - 
Featuring: Becker Vineyards

When you ask the average Texan ‘what do you think of Texas wine?’ you almost always, without exception get one of two responses back. Either they haven’t had any Texas wine worth remembering or they don’t even see it as an option when there is so much “better” wine out there.

The Texas vs. The World Tasting is a series that meets every 1st Wednesday and is a head-to-head varietal comparison of wines made in Texas, by Texas grown fruit compared to the same varietal in a wine from another world-class growing area.

Each tasting has a featured winery to co-host each tasting along side of GUSTO. The producer is there to shed light, lead discussions and answer questions about making wine in Texas. GUSTO Sommeliers are there to lead discussion and answer questions on the other world-class wines in the tasting. This tasting is intended be relaxed, social and fun; as well as being great for networking with other wine enthusiasts and professionals.



$40 In Advance
$60 At the door if there is space

Ticket price is inclusive of all the tastings and light food fare for each table.


This tasting series is produced in     partnership with the Texas Wine     and Food Consortium(TXWFC);       who’s mission is to promote the     Texas wine industry through trade   collaboration, events, education       and outreach.

    We had to make a venue change for this tasting series and as a result our scheduled Feb. 6th date had to change. Our new home for this tasting series will be at Malaga Tapas & Bar on the last Tuesday of each month instead of the 1st Wednesday of each month. We can roll-over your payment to that date or issue a refund or credit if your not able to attend, which we hope is not the case. We are excited to have Malaga as our newest community partner because they value what this tasting series is all about, which is to showcase great Texas wines and put them up against the very best the world has to offer. We hope this inconvenience doesn't inhibit your ability to attend on the 26th. If you have any questions about the schedule or event please do not hesitate. Cheers & Thanks!
