East Texas Winery Wins First Place In Taste Testing

An East Texas winery earns first place in a tasting competition for not one, but two of its wines. Kiepersol Estates participated in the annual Grapefest in Grapevine this past weekend with 39 other Texas wineries.   It was its red wines that won first place in the People's Choice Award. Their 2004 Texas Cabernet Sauvignon and 2004 Texas Merlot.   Also, the winery Kiepersol is trying to open on South Broadway in Tyler is still in the works. The owner says he's still waiting on a permit from the TABC and hopes to get it by the end of the month.
