Your Fun Begins in the Vineyard at 8:00am…
After a brief orientation, you and your group are sent off to our 42-acre estate vineyard to pick the grapes that will be placed into service! You may even break into a Sicilian song with the winemaker himself, Messina Hof Co-Founder, Paul Bonarrigo. These are the very grapes that will go into the making of Messina Hof’s award-winning port.
The Big Kahuna Competition – While in the field, make sure to look for the most interesting and unique cluster to enter the Big Kahuna We award the person with the best looking grape cluster and talent; this person is the Kahuna for the day!
Next… Dine at our Harvest Luncheon
