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.

We have been to Messina Hof in Bryan many, many times. We keep returning because we are always very pleased with our overnight stays at the gorgeous and meticulously run Villa bed and breakfast, our wine tasting and tours experiences with the fun, knowledgeable, and informative retail and Wine Bar staff, and our fantastic meals at their Vintage House restaurant,...

This place is one of my five favorite restaurants in the state, especially in the summer when the grapes are on the vines. The restaurant is superb. The wait staff kind, helpful, and attentive. The restaurant is in the barrel room with one bottles and beautiful stained glass. It's always a must stop for us when we're in the Bryan... More

Thursday we returned and visited the Wine Bar, had an... More

My husband and I did the tour of the winery. We have toured many wineries in the states and in Europe so the tour itself was OK. The wine tasting part was the best we have ever experienced. Kaitlyn gave us so much information we had never received before about how to actually go through all the steps of tasting... More

I like their wine as much as wine flown in from italy. The food is always wonderful. I usually get beef or chicken. The wine barrel room is a neat new addition with wine barrels lining floor to ceiling. I have taken their wine classes and also done wine tastings here.

The restaurant has good food choices. The wine flights are better on the all reds. The chard was a bit off for me. Deserts are great too. Grounds are easy to walk around and it being a bit out of town, it is nice and quiet.

Been here a couple times when out to visit the kids at A&M , small, which I think made for great personal attention. We loved their sweet wines and sangria so much we shipped some home, very good Merlot too. Has everything larger wineries I've visited in California have. I was surprised Texas wine could be so good

We were reserved for dinner next door at Messina Hof and decided to do a wine and cheese tasting while we waited. It was lovely. They have some great selections 'on tap' and you get to pair your own cheese. Quite inexpensive and a great start to the evening.
