Welcome to the Eighth Bonarrigo Wine Generation


Paul and Merrill Bonarrigo of Messina Hof Winery in Bryan are proud new grandparents, welcoming their first grandchild, Sophia Marie Bonarrigo.

Paul VII has just left the Army after two stints in Iraq and is interning under his father’s watchful tutelage at Messina Hof Winery.

Congratulations to this outstanding family of Texas wine.

This has been a fabulous year for the Bonarrigos with Paul VII joining the winery and Merrill Bonarrigo receiving the highest award of the State Woman Chamber of Commerce in addition to their new granddaughter.

Paul and Merrill Bonarrigo are one of the pioneer wine families in Texas.

It looks like the torch is being passed from one generation to the next.

Congratulations to a wonderful Texas institution, the Bonarrigo Family!
