Somm Journal to Partner With Texas Wine Journal to Feature Texas Wine Ratings

To help in its mission of building greater awareness of Texas wines, which includes providing credible, juried ratings, the recently launched Texas Wine Journal has announced a partnership with Somm Journal. Starting with  August 2014, the bi-monthly publication – published by the same professionals with the Tasting Panel Magazine, with a distribution list of more than 60,000 wine professionals throughout the United States – will publish Texas Wine Journal ratings of Texas wines.

The Somm Journal, which also has a growing international audience of wine writers, sommeliers, and other wine authorities due to its online presence, will publish wine ratings regularly, and then, starting in the first quarter of 2015, will feature TWJ’s top-rated wines of the year in an annual issue.

“All of us at Texas Wine Journal respect the Tasting Panel Magazine and Somm Journal greatly, and we’re honored to be partnering with them,” said Daniel Kelada, co-founder and Tasting Director with Texas Wine Journal. “We’re excited about this opportunity to bring knowledge of Texas wines to a national and even international audience.”

“It’s important for us to keep our eye on Texas wines as the state develops as one of the nation’s premier wine producers, and Texas Wine Journal will help us do just that,” said Meridith May, Publisher and Editorial Director for the Somm Journal and the Tasting Panel Magazine. “We’re looking forward to our partnership with Texas Wine Journal in helping our readers learn more about Texas wines.”

The Texas Wine Journal is a publication created by the Texas Wine Consortium, a 501c(3) nonprofit organization; its mission is to create awareness for Texas wines through independent, credible and juried ratings and feature articles and content on the Texas wine industry. Wines are rated by a panel of judges, comprised of wine professionals from several different facets of the wine industry, to provide a comprehensive and objective guide to Texas wines. Each judge has an impact on the final score a wine receives.
