Paul & Merrill Bonarrigo have created a beautiful winery and more impressive delicious wines. My wife & I first visited Messina Hof in 2001 and immediately fell in love. We have enjoyed visiting over the years and watched as the little winery grew to include a first class restaurant "The vintage House", a beautiful Bed & Breakfast "The Villa", and... More

Great place to go to have a nice, varied wine tasting. $15 for 6 wine flights. Didn't get a chance to go on the tour- but it seems it wasn't that extensive and didn't miss much. If the weather was nicer, would have sat outside and enjoyed the pretty lake.

The winery has excellent wines and terrific personnel. The winery is easy to get to from Fredericksburg, close to Austin and San Antonio; well worth the drive!

$12.50 for a tour and tasting. Great group experience. Some of my guests were tired and retired to the bar area for nibbles and wine. The other half trooped along to the vineyards and barrel room followed by a tasting in the gift shop back room. Quaint atmosphere. Interesting and entertaining tour and demo. Plenty of room to sit.

Messina Hof is a fine family run winery where I tried several of their gems. The pinot noir and cab were my favorites. The GHW/Bush Merlot had a nice nose and good taste.

They have some really excellent wines available for tasting in the hospitality room. Skipped the formal tour because it is overpriced at $12.50 per person and includes 4 tastings ($10 value) but big part of tour is promoting their bed and breakfast. Overall our stop was enjoyable. Skipped the restaurant due to limited time.

We are local folks (College Station) who love most M.H. wines--especially, their table reds and port. And, yes, we've done the tour--it was fine. But, the pinot grigio...well, GAG ME WITH A CORKSCREW! So raw and dry, may have to pour the rest down the sink (first time ever). Hereafter, will buy the $4 special at Wal-Mart.

While recently visiting friends in Katy Texas we took a Sunday day trip to this fine winery in Bryan Texas. From first stepping foot into their impressive store/wine tasting room to the winery tour to a walking tour of the grounds to enjoying a glass of wine in their wine bar, the entire experience was lovely and quite memorable.

If you’re looking for a romantic European theme in your Texas winery visits, you have to stop at Messina Hof Winery. With a blend of Italian and German styles to the buildings’ architecture, you’ll feel like you’ve found that restful respite from the hectic Houston work week. With a blend of two family heritages, Sicilian and German, they have brought... More
