Wine Surprise & Hidden Treasure


"In 2011, Messina Hof Hill Country opened its doors in Fredericksburg, Texas, the second Messina Hof location founded by the Bonarrigo family. The Germanic heritage of Merrill Bonarrigo, wife of co-founder Paul V, adds an architectural influence to the winery while embracing old-world winemaking traditions of Messina, Sicily, from Paul's family. Here guests indulge in the tasting room and stay on property in the Manor Haus Bed and Breakfast. This is a convenient, first-stop in the Texas Hill Country Winery trail. As a company, the presence and expansion in the Hill Country region reflects Messina Hof’s legacy and commitment to remain a leader in the vastly growing Texas wine industry. Messina Hof Hill Country combines decades of winemaking and hospitality experience in the production of award-winning wines."
