It's everyone's favorite wine and chili party of the year. Come out and join us for our 10th Annual Pair It with the Claret, it's bound to be the best one yet!
The object for the chili competitors is to make ANY kind of Chili that BEST PAIRS with our award winning 2015 Cabernet Claret. Each team will be provided with 2 bottles of Cabernet Claret and the rest is up to you.
You can make your Chili at home, but you must be prepared to bring AT LEAST 5 GALLONS on the day of the event. You must also bring something to heat your chili in/on.
Spicewood Vineyards will provide you with the Judges’ Taste
Cups and public “taste portion” cups so that those not competing may walk around and sample.
The judging will take place at 4.00 p.m. by a panel of diverse wine and food professionals.
The field is limited to 40 so complete the application and submit it with the $60.00 entrance fee as soon as possible (up to 4 people/wristbands per team).
If you do not want to enter the competition, we encourage you to come out and decide for yourselves who has made the Chili that best pairs with our Cabernet Claret.
Advance tickets are $25 which gets you your chili tasting wrist band that includes a glass of our Cabernet Claret in a commemorative wine glass for you to keep.
