A quiet Sunday lunch accompanied by Michael Buble music softly playing, served by a friendly and attentive waiter. The snapper was cooked to perfection and the asparagus seasoned and cooked just right! Did I mention the wine tasting? Wonderful What a delightful way to spend Sunday with a very significant other.

We live in the same town and love taking visitors there for a touch of elegance served up with Southern Hospitality😀 any time we have eaten there it has been a good experience all around. Our favorite is, however, the turtle pond in the back and they give you free turtle food to lure the little cuties up to the... More

My girlfriend and I arrived an hour before our lunch/dinner reservations. We entered the store of surprisingly well-priced wine (most wines are $14, and could easily go for double that). We each got a glass of our favorite wine (the Gewurztraminer) and took a walk along the path that take its hikers past a lovely pond, a few benches, gazebo,... More

I surprised my wife with a wine tour and dinner here. the tour is a minimum of 10 ppl so at $15 per person $150 is a steal for what you get. Our family and friends accompanied us and we all had a blast and got tipsy from the tastings. The tour of the cellar and distillery was very interesting.... More

My son 22 and I went for the wine tasting and tour as part of my birthday celebration weekend. Our tour guide was excellent! We purchased a glass of wine to take with us on the tour. The antiques in the Villa are spectacular. It was awesome to see the vines that produce the grapes they harvest for their PORT.... More

I visited with my adult children. The tour guide was most informative and entertaining with the information that he provided. We stayed for two flights of additional tastings. The environment was sweet and homey and the staff was pleasant and informative A "must do"

Spent done time here to enjoy the Messina Hof wines and take some family pictures. Bar staff was very friendly and made some good suggestions. I especially enjoyed the reserve Pinot noir. Wonderful, actually.

The wine is great but a little pricey. The place is small and busy. The workers are okay, but nothing special. We had to wait a while to be taken care of and the tastings are expensive.

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
