Mission and History

Messina Hof is a family-owned business based on the three cornerstones of family, tradition, and romance. We are dedicated to producing a gold medal-winning wine in every varietal. We also want to maximize opportunities developed from our wines into creating a tourism destination focused on the best in hospitality, food, and customer service.

Messina Hof’s rich heritage starts with Paul V. Bonarrigo, charting back six generations of winemakers to Messina, Sicily. His wife, Merrill Bonarrigo’s family originates from Hof, Germany. They have pioneered the Texas wine industry in creating premium wines of distinction and a landmark wine country destination. Paul & Merrill have one son, Paul Mitchell Bonarrigo, who has worked in the vineyard studying winemaking and viniculture traditions since his youth. After serving as a United States Marine Corps Officer, Paul M. Bonarrigo became CEO in 2012. He & his wife, Karen Bonarrigo, continue the legacy of world-class wines and hospitality while also creating new frontiers.

Core Values

Family encompasses everything we do and are at Messina Hof. Our family of customers and staff connect through wine, hospitality, and celebration. Family means that we respect each other and are committed to working for the good of all and not of ourselves. Families join with each other continuously and communicate often to grow together. Family members can share hard truth and love at the same time because we care enough to be truthful with each other.

Forthright Integrity

Speak and act truthfully always. Have the courage to do the right thing in the right way. Be an honest individual of character. Hold yourself and those around you accountable to the truth and our values. Gossip and maligning have no place here, but the truth is always welcome. Never speak ill of the company or of its members.

Authentic Humility

Our vision is bigger than us all. Everything we have is a blessing, and it’s not a result of our work alone. True hospitality occurs when you see yourself not as an individual, but as a part of a whole. A humble heart does not do things out of selfishness, but out of service. Value others above yourself.

Meticulous Stewardship

Stewardship is the careful and responsible management of everything entrusted to one’s care. We must treat every person, every asset, and every opportunity as precious blessings. We must maintain what we have in good condition, develop them to perform better than when we received them, and use them to drive ourselves to accomplish our vision.

Inspired Initiative

Be inspired by the vision of the company and proactively engage to accomplish our goals. Take action. When you see a problem, fix it. Have a passion for what we do and push to make us better. Take ownership of our goals and have the initiative to see them through to completion, regardless of adversity.

Loyal Commitment

Have faith and trust in the organization, our people, and our vision. Be dedicated to your role and the mission of the company. Aspire for continual growth within our family and commit your heart to love who we are.

Yearning for Wine

Love wine and its creation. Be devoted to growing in knowledge and appreciation of wine and food. Embrace our craft that comes from the earth, is touched by many hands, molded through art, and bottled with skill for the enjoyment of our family and ourselves.
