The Wait is Over… Harvest 2017 is Here!


Messina Hof officially kicked off Harvest with the first pick of 2017! This morning, the Bonarrigos, along with the harvest crew, began picking Blanc du Bois at our very own Messina Hof Estate in Bryan, Texas.

 40 years ago, Messina Hof was founded on tradition, romance and family. These values have been important to the Bonarrigo family since Messina Hof’s beginnings, with Paul Vincent’s father traveling all the way from Florida to help pick grapes during the first harvest.

 Today, the family keeps the tradition alive by passing along wisdom to the next generation – with Paul VII and Karen’s children, Sophia and Paul VIII joining in during harvest.
