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.

Out in the local countryside of Bryan, this winery has it all except for excellent wines. On the premises is a high end B&B, a high end restaurant, grape vines, and a nice tasting room. Pours in the tasting room are small. Fee for tasting. Many varietals and types of wine. Wines have won many medals in Texas competitions. However... More

A group of neighbors went to Messina Hof for a tour and wine tasting. We were so welcome and the tour was the best I have ever experienced at this place.

We stopped by on our way from Waco to Houston and were so pleased to find a winery open on a Monday! We had read that you could order a cheese tray and we were interested in that, but the part of the property that does that wasn't going to be open for a few more hours. However, they had... More

Great place to go for an afternoon. Can do a wine tour with 4 tastes afterward for15$ otherwise can choose your own at a cost per taste. Neat little shop to buy any type of wine accessory. There is a wine bar to sit in or out by the pond with appetizers. Restaurants and bed and breakfast on site- did... More

I came here at the beginning of December with a friend. The tour guide was great and knew so much about wine! We had an amazing time and the wine was delicious. The best part of the tour was learning new ways to taste wine, even though we looked and sounded ridiculous the wine tasted better and we couldn't stop... More

We were expecting a wine tasting...a little info about the wines, perhaps a cracker or glass of water to cleanse the palate. No. What we got was an arrogant obnoxious "bartender" who kept interrupting and singing and just annoying the crap out of everyone at the bar. He truly believed all his shenanigans somehow improved our experience but all we... More

No longer a hidden gem, but still an excellent place to eat. Went with a group of 6 and we all enjoyed our dinner. In my opinion, the duck was the best, followed by the fillet, followed by the salmon. Everyone enjoyed ordering the wine flights Dessert flambed at the table was fun, the couple at our table that could... More

Beautiful buildings, this winery offers an informative and enjoyable tour and tasting. Additionally, they have a beautiful bed and breakfast with each room done in a different theme. In addition to the pleasant, helpful staff, we had the pleasure of meeting the owner and enjoying the added info he provided and his company. A place well worth the visit.
