Messina Hof Bryan

Founded on the cornerstones of family, tradition, and romance, Messina Hof Winery & Resort has held its place as a Brazos Valley staple since its start in 1977. The Tasting Room is the original building on the estate and used to be the Ursuline Academy, an all-girls school. Many original elements from the academy were preserved when constructing the Tasting Room guests enjoy today.

  • Tours & Shopping in The Tasting Room
  • Fine dining at The Vintage House Restaurant
