The tour makes a great date along with the wine tasting afterward.

“A fun place.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2012

I love wine and Messina Hof is a fun place. Good basic tour of the winery and how wines are made. They do make some excellent wines which are available for tasting. If you don't like wine or care about where it comes from--stay away.

“Wonderful afternoon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2012

A dear friend and I spent the afternoon at Messina Hof and had a great experience there. The tour itself was not extensive, but the tour guide was knowledgeable and thoroughly explained each step in their processes. The wine tasting afterwards was very enjoyable, primarily because the staff member presenting the information was so full of insights about the origin and characteristics of the different wines we tried. They could possibly do better on the tour side of the experience, but we enjoyed the day. After seeing the bed and breakfast on the premises, I recommended it to my parents as a great spot for an anniversary trip. They agreed and had an amazing stay there.

“Make the drive if you haven't already”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012

If you stay away from the aged beef, you'll like the menu. Beautifull grounds!

“Don't bother!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2012 via mobile

We visited and were disappointed. We took the tour and were completely disgusted by the lack of professionalism. The winery had many opened boxes and items left around which were unrelated to the winery. Also, as we walked the grounds, it felt as if we were in someone's backyard. There were old containers and metal sheets left on the ground. The staff had Bob Marley blaring while cleaning as we were listening to the tour guide. Although the tour guide attempted to remain focused and hold our attention, he was interrupted by the staff working around him several times. To sum it up, we paid for a tour we could have done ourselves. The winery has a lot of potential so it's sad to see the owner not maximize it's worth. Not worth the money....
