If you’re looking for a quick winery trip with a little bit of luxury and a great variety of award-winning wines, hop in the car and cruise on up to Messina Hof Winery and Resort in Bryan. (Messina Hof also has a tasting room location in the Hill Country… But Bryan is just so close for a quick visit!)
Messina Hof hosts weekly events including wine appreciation classes and pairings at their Wine Bar, as well as all of their Texas-made wines, many of which won many accolades at this year’s Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo’s International Wine Competition.
The Vintage House Restaurant offers fine dining in a winery setting, as well as monthly cooking parties with the chef. For those who prefer to make an overnight stay of the experience, book a room at the AAA 4 Diamond rated bed and breakfast right on the property.
Wine and Roses Festival
Need another excuse to visit? On April 20, Messina Hof is hosting its annual Wine and Roses Festival, when the winery’s roses (and bluebonnets) will be in full bloom. There will be a grape-stomping competition, wine seminars, live music and more. Click over for more details and to plan your trip this weekend.
