Point of Sale

The Rodeo provides an array of merchandising materials to promote your award-winning wine in retail establishments. Wineries, distributors, retailers and marketing companies may download and customize bottle neckers, end cap banners, header cards, shelf talkers, etc. to print for retail store displays. Please note, this is the only approved marketing materials to be used to promote the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo’s International Wine Competition and is specific to the current Rodeo year. Our Wine Show volunteers work directly with local retailers to develop relationships and in-store displays to promote as many medal-winning wines as possible.


Digital Medals

The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo™ provides digital medals for wineries to use in promoting their award-winning wine(s) in online and social media marketing efforts. Wineries should choose the medal that corresponds with the award won by a specific wine in the Rodeo Uncorked! International Wine Competition (double gold, gold, silver or bronze). Please note, this medal art is the only approved format in which to use the Rodeo’s logo in conjunction with your winning wine.
