Messina Hof’s Harvest Festival – Daytime Activities
Sunday, July 29th 8:00am – 3:00pm

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
Our Chefs from The Vintage House Restaurant use on the freshest ingredients for our trademark “Texas Vineyard Cuisine”. Perfect after a historical day of Harvest. Enjoy hand-selected and hand-cut meats, herbs and vegetables from our vineyard garden, and, of course, our award-winning wines that are part of every recipe.

Then…Our Food & Wine Pairing Party
At this unique seminar, you’ll learn how to match the right foods with the right wines, like a pro! That’s because a pro will be guiding you through every step. These interactive seminars are conducted by Messina Hof Co-Founder and Cookbook Author, Merrill Bonarrigo.
