Local winemaker Lee Foster Fuqua’s 2002 FUQUA Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon won a Gold Medal at the Fingerlakes International Wine Competition. About 2300 wines were entered. Only 161 won gold. Fuqua Winery also produces a Texas Red made from grapes grown in West Texas. It’s a blend of Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Cabernet Franc. Visit the winery any Saturday from noon-6 p.m. It’s on the outskirts of Highland Park by Love Field. 3737Atwell Street, Suite 203, 214-769-1147.
Update: Just found out the the 2004 FUQUA Texas Red Wine won a silver at the same competition. We love it when Texas wine takes the spotlight.
