Overview

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 decided to spend an afternoon at Messina Hof Winery doing a little wine tasting. The wine list is extensive, with something for everyone. I prefer sweet wines and had several to choose from. The service was fine and the place was almost deserted on...More

Messina Hoff has been my favorite wine since the early 80s and while I visited their Fredericksburg location I had not been to their actual vineyard in Bryan until today. Was excited to be stopping by but ended up being disappointed. Their tastings are expensive...More

We went to the wine and roses festival. We had a great time. We did the grape stomp did a chocolate and wine pairing and had the Italian feast. We will definitely go again.

I have been here a couple of different times, but finally made it to a tour. The day we went on the tour it was very chilly outside, so it wasn't particularly nice to examine the grape vines etc. The tour was good, seemed knowledgable...More

Beautiful little winery. We just went for a tasting and decided it was too chilly for a tour. The staff was very nice. Has a large selection of wines. I enjoyed every wine I tasted.

Always a fun place, especially the deck overlooking the pond. However, we are disappointed the Aggie Night options have changed. Now only a limited number is wines are offered at half price .

We started with a tasting, then settled on a particular bottle. While we didn't stay on property or eat at the restaurant, we could tell both were popular by the comments of those around us. Good idea to get a reservation for a wine tour....More
