For the unforgettable experience—and to get your hands a little dirty—don't miss the Harvest Festival at Messina Hof Winery & Resort in Bryan, Texas. Get out into the vineyards and hand-pick the taught-skinned Lenoir grapes that later become Messina Hof’s award-winning Sophia Marie Rose and world-class port wines. Once the grapes are gathered, it’s time to head to the crush pad and let the stomping begin. In addition to the picking and stomping, the festival includes classes on wine pairing with food, wine tastings, and tours of the beautiful Messina Hof Winery and grounds, as well as luncheons at their award-winning Vintage House Restaurant. With other specialty events like a Moonlit Harvest, a Tapas and Tasting event, and a Bounty Farm to Table Dinner on the harvest calendar, you'll want to reserve one of Messina Hof’s 11 suites so you’ll have time to enjoy all the festival offers.
