About Messina Hof

Since 1977, Messina Hof has been a pioneer in both creating award-winning Texas wines and taking care of wine-lovers across Texas and the country.

The Messina Hof Mission Statement

Messina Hof is a family-owned business based on the three cornerstones of family, tradition, and romance. We are dedicated to producing premium Texas wines that people love. Our passion is to share these wines through experiences of exceptional hospitality, food, and customer service in order to bring people into our Family and inspire them to share them with their own.

Our Founders

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.
