Vinclusive Event at Messina Hof


September 9 & 10, 2011

Whether you consider yourself a connoisseur of fine wines or a wine-curious novice, sharpen your palate and gain an intimate appreciation for why blending is considered the highest art-form in winemaking with Messina Hof’s upcoming VINclusive Event.

During your Blending Session, the Messina Hof team will guide you through the same steps that professionals use to determine what final blend goes into bottle. Your hands-on experience begins by evaluating several base wines for aromatics, flavor and texture. You’ll then use this knowledge to create a unique blend of your own.

Enjoy a luncheon al fresco in the Vineyard and then return to the Cellar Room for an afternoon of Barrel Tasting! Take a sneak peek into the world of Winemaking and enjoy the unique opportunity of tasting wine during the aging process. Our Barrel Tasting Seminar will give you a glimpse of how our barrel wines will taste once they have aged.

At the end of the day, enjoy a magnificent Winemaker’s Feast in the Vineyard Room offering a four course Chef’s Menu highlighting Messina Hof Wines.
