Tracing centuries back, Messina, Sicily and Hof, Germany are the familial origins of the company founders. With strong roots behind them, the Bonarrigos in 1977 planted their first vineyard in Bryan and named it Messina Hof.

We liked Jonathan very much- knowledgeable, personable and engaging!! We learned and had fun!!
Place is a little bit old though seems to be charming. Staff are very nice . Our Tour guide Michael was very accommodating & funny. Made us very comfortable & gained a lot of info about wines & wine tasting. I think the price is reasonable. we were given adequate amount of wine to taste & we got to keep the wine glass too. Overall it was a fun trip & I'll recommend it to my friends & family.
Fun and educational
Great staff, great mood and great wine! The ambiance took me away to a villa in Italy. The wine was smooth and aged to perfection. I would have loved a longer tour that included the vineyard (yes it’s winter and there isn’t any leaves currently on the vines) but I would have loved a broader tour
When we arrived the tasting room was nice. We waited a moment to receive service which wasnt an issue. We sat and waited for the tour to begin as we were asked. We were told someone would come get us. This didnt happen. Fortunately we got up when we saw a group get up. The tour was short, unorganized and provided little information. Ladies were nice but out of their element.
The two girls who showed us around were very knowledgeable, polite and resourceful. We were a total of 3 couples it was a perfect intimate setting sitting at the table where the barrels were. We will definitely be back and try to stay at the Inn.
Had an amazing time!! Every employee was very nice and helped me discover new wines. Michael was so much fun to drink with!
The winery was beautiful. The tour guide didn’t announce it was starting. We had to figure out where to go on our own. There were “regulars” in the VIP club in the same room as where we were learning about the winery. They kept yelling out to the guide. We could barely here the guide because of this.
It was romantic to go with my significant other and we really enjoyed the back story behind messina hoff as well as the quick run down on the winery itself.
Our server, Jonathan was amazing. He was pleasant, personable and knowledgeable.
Love the expansion and would have been nice to be able to go into the fields as I did in the past.
Had a great experience! Loved the tour and our guide Michael. He was a great host and very knowledgable.
Server not knowledgeable about wine or the food. Substitution- couldn’t explain what it was. Also placemats didn’t give enough info. No plates with cheese board & could have used a sharper knife & could have used more than one place knife. Food wasn’t served at same time.
Gabby was a great tour guide. Lots of energy, funny and kept us involved in the tour. She was open to comments and questions!
Brittany was great! Very knowledgeable and accommodating! Will be back for sure
All though it wasn’t the best time of year to visit our group of 4 still enjoyed the tour & tasting.
Staff were friendly and knowledgeable. Wine was delicious!
Jhonathan did a great job.
Even though we were a small group of 4, we were given a great tour as if we were a larger group.
The staff was very nice and helpful. The tour was full of history and valuable information that furthered my education in not only wine tasting but also about this company. They carry Aggie core values and I highly recommend you to visit this winery. I can't wait to go back with more friends and family. So glad I spent my birthday with this winery.
We especially enjoyed the instructions on how to taste the wine and the science behind wines and winemaking.
Awesome. Made me buy two wines
We have been attending Messina Hof events for years now and this was our first time doing a tour. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable of the company and wine sipping techniques.
It was an amazing experience!
Our host and tour guide, Jonathan, was great. Very friendly, knowledgeable and took great care of a very large group. Thoroughly enjoyed the cellar tour and highly recommend.
This is the second time that I've been to the Bryan Messina Hof tour and tasting and I know it will not be my last. The grounds and buildings are all very inviting and beautiful. Staff are friendly and knowledgeable. A great attraction in the BCS area that is worth a look!
We enjoyed the wine and cheese plate. We also had the antipasta. We were in the Bryan location. We also stayed at the B & B. Would definitely recommend this to anyone.
I absolutely loved the cellar tour! Austin Russell was our guide and he was both entertaining and instructional! I highly recommend this activity for anyone who loves wine or just loves the science of how things are made.
Spend a few hours Saturday with my adult daughter at Messina Hof. We had a fabulous time. The Tasting Room was lively, the staff rocked and our tour guide, Samantha was delightful. We loved the wine. Chloe prefers cabs and merlots while I love the sweeter blushes/roses. It is evident the people who work for MHW are passionate about all things Messina Hof. I highly recommend.
I have taken the tour and tasting in the past and absolutely loved it. This time I brought with me some people and we were disappointed. We understand it was our tour guide's first tour, but she did not know much and was unable to answer most questions. In some portions of the tour she was unable to provide an explanation.
We really enjoy the tasting. The tasting room was a very confortable temperature and the guy tour was very knowledgeable. Very nice place! For sure we will going back with friends!
It was lovely and lunch was delicious in the restaurant
Beautiful place! The tour was great and our guide Austin very knowledgeable.
Would love to come back and do it all over again. I can highly recommend it to everybody to visit Messina Hof and take a Tour.
The tour was well done and the explanation of the property and the wine was great however I did not love our guide. Luckily, I don’t take offense easily but he was poking fun at a few people the whole tour. It was all in good fun however could come off as rude to some. Other than that great tour!
We had a wonderful time! Doug was extremely informative and answered our numerous questions. Some of the people in our group have been to other wine tours in other places and said this one was one of the best they have been on. I will definitely be back for another Messina Hof experience.
The tour was fun but less educational than we expected. Dinner at the restaurant was great.
My one complaint is that the restaurant was closed.
We had a great time. Our tour guide, Alexa, was very informative, seemed to love her job, and was willing to answer every question from the group.
This is a beautiful estate with incredible wine and brunch! The tour and tasting is very affordable and well worth doing.
