As songbirds sing and bumblebees buzz, it’s clear spring is here! There’s no better place to enjoy this season of blossoms than the Messina Hof vineyards, especially at their annual Wine & Roses Festival, April 22-24. This year marks their 38th celebration!
Spring Wine Release Dinner
Be one of the first to taste this premier winery’s brand new varietals and vintages. Taking place from 7:30-9 p.m. on Friday, April 22, the wine release dinner pairs newly released wines with a first-rate, five-course dinner exclusively handcrafted by Messina Hof’s Chef. This outdoor dinner will be accompanied by live music, artwork from their Annual Texas Artist Wine Label Competition, and a silent auction that benefits the Arts Council of the Brazos Valley. Pull out your favorite spring ensemble as the recommended attire is dressy casual or garden party style.
Take a stroll down the rows of springtime creations as you shop local. Support some of Bryan/College Stations’ favorite artisans all weekend at the vendor fair where exclusive handmade creations will be available for all your spring shopping fixations.

Waggles and Wine
Because no one loves romping through green fields and fresh flowers more than our canine friends, Messina Hof welcomes all four-legged members of the family to join in on the springtime celebrations. The fun-filled day includes all the sniffing, running, jumping, playing, and eating that your pooch could want for a wagging good time. There will also be plenty of treats, of course.
