Description:

Founded on the cornerstones of family, tradition and romance, Messina Hof...

Founded on the cornerstones of family, tradition and romance, Messina Hof Winery & Resort has held its place as a Brazos Valley staple since its founding in 1977. It is the estate winery where the Messina Hof winemaking team crafts our world-class wines. Messina Hof had humble beginnings as founders, Paul Vincent and Merrill Bonarrigo ran the lab, tastings, etc right out of their living room. Our current Tasting Room, also known as the Guest Center, was the rebuilt home that wa originally the Ursuline Academy, which was an all girls school. The original brick from the home was used to build the Tasting Room that guests can still see today.

Texas Hold Em is a must for wine drinkers looking for dry red. I live in Cleveland, OH and plan on ordering some!

My husband and I attended the Wine Premiere Wine Release Party on Nov 5, stayed at the Villa B&B, hung out at the Wine Tasting Room and Bar, and ate at the The Vintage House Restaurant during our weekend stay. The Villa B&B is romantic, wines were exceptional, food delicious and hospitality and customer service memorable.

Great Texas hospitality! We had reservations for a group of 34, and we were welcomed immediately and invited to sit a spell in the outdoor covered patio, delicious bubbly beverage in hand. Caitlin instantly put everyone at ease as she shared some of the history of the winery and the owners. She was amusing and engaging. We were then directed... More

We ended up being the only 2 people on that tour but Carolyn did a fabulous job, explaining everything and answering all our questions. We enjoyed the 4 wines we sampled and got to keep our tasting glasses! Really enjoyed it.

On October 2, a group of four of us visited Messina Hof to kick off our 7 winery trail tour. They were very organized, welcoming, helpful and gave us a good wine tasting experience. They served a very delicious sweet Italian sausage on a roll to go with the two wines we tasted. It was a very pleasant experience for... More

Our party had a most impressive luncheon with the Bonarrigo's at their beautiful winery! The food was excellent and the wine's were stellar. This winery is a little gem tucked comfortably away in Bryan, Texas. They have grown and matured so admirably since my first visit there in the early 90's! At lunch, we discussed the Bonarrigo's coming to Shreveport... More
