Indulgence takes on a new meaning with Messina Hof Winery’s latest offering: a honey and wine pairing that promises to elevate your taste buds. Picture this: a symphony of flavors where honey meets wine in a dance of delightful combinations. At all of Messina Hof’s locations, guests can savor four exquisite pairings, each meticulously crafted to tantalize and satisfy. 


Honey-Soaked Watermelon with Sparkling Brut  

Imagine the refreshingly sweet taste of watermelon kissed by the essence of mint and honey. When paired with Messina Hof’s Sparkling Brut, the wine’s effervescence lifts the flavors to new heights. The honey, though present, takes a step back, allowing the watermelon’s vibrancy to shine through. The result? A delightful and balanced combination that is perfect for a warm afternoon.  


Whipped Ricotta with Hot Honey Drizzle and Off Dry Riesling  

Experience luxury in every bite with whipped ricotta drizzled with hot honey. The creamy texture of the ricotta creates a luscious mouthfeel. At the same time, the heat of the honey gracefully builds with each taste. Pair this with Messina Hof’s Off Dry Riesling, and the honey’s sweetness will be amplified. Soft fruit flavors like apricot and pear emerge, creating a captivating pairing that will leave you wanting more. 

Prosciutto Flatbread with Herbed Honey and Artist Series Sangiovese  

The Prosciutto Flatbread with herbed honey is a must-try for those who love a savory delight. Messina Hof’s Artist Series Sangiovese‘s earthy undertones harmonize with the honey’s herbal elements, accentuating the goat cheese’s tanginess. The salty prosciutto dances on your palate with each bite while the Sangiovese rounds out the flavors, creating a truly delightful experience.  


No-Bake Salted Honey Mini Cheesecake with Off Dry Muscat Canelli  

End your tasting journey sweetly with the No-Bake Salted Honey Mini Cheesecake. Picture a light and fluffy cheesecake on an animal-cracker-like crust, bursting with hints of orange zest. Pair this with Messina Hof’s Off Dry Muscat Canelli, and you’ll discover a match made in dessert heaven. The wine’s floral notes and a touch of sweetness create a richer, fuller flavor profile, elevating the cheesecake to new heights of deliciousness.
