We’d like to connect you with Messina Hof Winery CEO Paul M. Bonarrigo for further discussions. When Messina Hof began in 1977, there were only three wineries in Texas. Today, the Texas wine industry is booming – having grown to almost over 300 wineries at year-end 2014. Vineyard growth has doubled in the last 10 years to around 8,000 acres. We’d be happy to coordinate a conversation for you.
