Paul Vincent and Merrill Bonarrigo founded Messina Hof in 1977 with the express purpose of merging Old World hospitality, New World ambition, and the potential of Texas grapes. Now helmed by Paul Mitchell and Karen Bonarrigo, Messina Hof has become the most award-winning winery in the Lone Star State and one of the largest producers of 100% Texas wine.
