Champion Wine Garden

wine glass


If B-B-Q and beer and isn’t your fancy, the Livestock Show and Rodeo is featuring some award winning wines.  For the second year, at a fun wine bar they’ll be serving wines from the 2009 International Wine Competition. Located in Carruth Plaza, the Champion Wine Garden is a great place to relax, take in the scenery and enjoy some of the best wines from across the world.  I’m on the wine committee and this is by far one of the most enjoyable parts of the stock show and rodeo…maybe I’m a little biased!  See you there!
