Happy Memorial Day!


Memorial Day is coming up and many of us are getting ready to enjoy the three day weekend, spend time with family, and most importantly, reflect on the sacrifice that American soldiers made for this country.Soldier Salute

With approximately 57% of Americans grilling out this weekend, it’s important to know the dos and don’ts of wine and BBQ pairing. No doubt burgers, hot dogs, steaks, chicken, and grilled fish will be staples at many BBQ’s across the country. When grilling foods like burgers, hot dogs, and chicken, we suggest our most popular BBQ wine, the light and wonderfully sweet Messina Hof Beau. If grilling seafood or lighter meats, our fruity and elegant Pinot Noir will make a perfect pairing. For those of you sticking with steaks this weekend, veer towards dry, robust red wines like the Paulo Cabernet Sauvignon.

To reflect on the lives of fallen soldiers, be sure to stop by the Brazos Valley Veterans Memorial. The memorial is located in the Veterans Park and Athletic Complex at 3101 Harvey Road in College Station. It is open to the public seven days a week and is free of charge.

So whatever you find yourself doing this weekend, we hope you enjoy time with family and friends and remember the cost of our freedom and the lives lost to protect this great nation.

Happy Memorial Day from Messina Hof!
