Moonlit Harvest ignites the Harvest Festival at Messina Hof. The evening begins with a brief introduction of Messina Hof and Harvest season at the winery. All festival goers will then enjoy a ceremonial picking of grapes from the lush vineyards. The Bonarrigo Family will host the annual blessing of the vines ceremony before participants begin stomping the grapes. After stomping, each individual is provided with a memorable t-shirt to place their grape-soaked foot prints on. Guests will then explore the winemaking process on a production facility tour with a wine tasting to follow. To end the evening, all will relax and indulge in a Harvest feast of vineyard cuisine paired with Messina Hof wines in the Vintage House Restaurant.
