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 visited here as part of the Bluebonnet Wine Tour. This was one of the few wineries we would return to on its own. After our chocolate and wine pairing we also took a Winery tour and it was great! We enjoyed the wines, scenery, and food pairings!

We just returned home from yet another perfectly wonderful visit to Messina Hof Winery in Bryan. As always the staff in the Wine Tasting Room and the Wine Bar were friendly, hospitable and knowledgeable. And, of course, the wines were superb. Our stay in the impeccably well-run Villa B&B was comfortable, quiet and romantic. As usual, we were treated like... More

The winery has a very nice setting -- lovely walking trails and outside seating overlooking a pond. The have a fabulous bar area. I've not tried the resteraunt though I have eaten their food at a wedding reception and it was wonderful. Definitely go on a tour of the vineyard if you get the opportunity.

I have found that restaurants "attached" to wineries can be very hit & miss but glad to say that this place was well worth it. Huge plates so don't be shy on sharing!! Good selection of food along with a very good wine list. Not cheap but good value for money in a nice setting. After the meal we headed... More

Texas Hold Em is a must for wine drinkers looking for dry red. I live in Cleveland, OH and plan on ordering some!

My husband and I attended the Wine Premiere Wine Release Party on Nov 5, stayed at the Villa B&B, hung out at the Wine Tasting Room and Bar, and ate at the The Vintage House Restaurant during our weekend stay. The Villa B&B is romantic, wines were exceptional, food delicious and hospitality and customer service memorable.

Great Texas hospitality! We had reservations for a group of 34, and we were welcomed immediately and invited to sit a spell in the outdoor covered patio, delicious bubbly beverage in hand. Caitlin instantly put everyone at ease as she shared some of the history of the winery and the owners. She was amusing and engaging. We were then directed... More
