The 2018 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition recently announced its winners, and Red 55 Winery was among those honored. Based in Lindale, Texas and owned and operated by Miranda Lambert together with parents Beverly, and Rick, the winery business has grown to include a wine club and clearly spread its wings (a pun of their wine label) as a solid producer in the industry.

Taking to social media with the news on January 17, Red 55 Winery’s Facebook account acknowledged the team behind the success and made note of the size of this competition, and subsequently the merit its accolades hold: “Congratulations Team Red 55! The largest competition of American wines in the world names best American wines of 2018 After receiving 6,960 entries from 35 states across the country.”
