Come out and decide for yourselves who has made the chili that best pairs with our Cabernet Claret.

Tickets are $25 online before the event and $30 at the door.

The ticket gets you a tasting wrist band for all the chili and a glass of our 2015 Cabernet Claret in a commemorative wine glass for you
to keep.

Live music will accompany that afternoon as always!

Do you have what it takes to win?

Application fee is $40 and the field is limited to 40 Teams (4 per team max) so if you think you have what it takes, choose the Competitor ticket and bring your best!

1st Place: A case of your choice of Spicewood Vineyards Wine and a 15% off voucher for all wine purchases throughout the remainder of 2018.

3rd Place: 6 bottles of Mixed Spicewood Vineyards Wine; People’s Choice Award (by public voting) – 6 bottles of mixed Spicewood Vineyards wine.

Here is your goal:

Make ANY kind of chili that BEST PAIRS with our Cabernet Claret.

Each entrant will be provided with 2 bottles and the rest is up to you. You may 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.

We 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 pm by a panel of diverse wine and food professionals.


Although we love our four legged friends, for their safety and everyone’s enjoyment, we ask that you please keep them at home for this one.
