A Wine & Roses Weekend Wrap Up!


This past weekend, Messina Hof celebrated spring with festivities from Friday to Sunday! We kicked off the weekend with our annual Spring Release Wine Dinner. Along with new wine releases, Messina Hof held a live auction benefiting the Arts Council of the Brazos Valley resulting in a 6 liter bottle of Messina Hof’s new Heritage Blend going for $2,100!

On Saturday, 3,500 wine lovers gathered at the Estate to enjoy the 33rd Annual Wine & Roses Festival. Guests participated in everything from wine tasting to live music to the grape stomp competition.

A classic fest favorite, the grape stomp sold out with 48 teams competing to be number one. In the end, team Grape Mania took home first!

The weekend wrapped up with a 5K and half marathon. Aside 1,300 runners, Messina Hof’s very own Paul and Sophia Bonarrigo participated in the race. How cute is the daddy/daughter duo? #TeamBonarrigo
