Romantic and Awe-inspiring – My husband and I love Messina Hof Winery. It was there 4 years ago at a corner table in November that he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. It was the most romantic thing in the world!! The atmosphere and the owners, not to mention the staff are all so welcoming and want to make your stay there memorable. We stayed in the Villa and picked grapes as well as participated in the muder mystery dinner. All worth the time and money. We will visiting the vinyard soon for the annual picking. It was a great experience and we would HIGHLY recommend taking a day to see the winery and sign up for the wine tasting. When we have family visiting from PA we take them to the winery and they most definitely fall in love with the vinyard, the lake, the villas, etc. We are lucky that such a great place is so close to visit.
REALLY GOOD FOOD AND WINE – This review is about the Vintage House Restaurant at Messina Hof Winery $ Resort. I have been to this restaurant about 4-5 times in the past 3 years. The food is excellent, staff is friendly and great service, great environment, it's the best restaurant I know in College Station, TX. Very romantic if that's what you are looking for, you definitely get what you are paying. I don't presonally think it's overpriced... many dishes cos ~$20 on average, maybe less. some, of course, will be ~$25 or so, depending. Messina Hof wine is EXCELLENT, I reccomend it to anyone. Their wine is so good and so cheap. The first time my wife and I went to the restaurant, order a bottle of wine and liked it so much we've been buying many of their wines often. Their average wine bottle will cost around $12-20, and they are GOOD. You can get them at HEB, or anywhere around. Back to the restaurant, they have a lot of choices, great desserts. Once, i went with 3 people, and we ordered a bottle. They served the other tree people and after they served my glass, I noticed there was a little wine fly in the wine. The wine bottle was completely gone by the time they had finished pouring the wine. I told they waiter and she called the manager. He was extremely nice, he explaines to me that these little flies are in the vineyard, and that sometimes get inside the bottles when making the wine. He said that particular wine they did not serve by the glass and offered me a new bottle on the house. it was great !!... Anyway, highly recommended, especially for special things like birthdays, graduation, romantic dinner, etc.
Take a trip back in time to a traditional Italian vintner at this quaint and fascinating B&B. – The Scene
A beautiful Tudor-style home on the outskirts of Bryan-College Station, this romantic B&B offers a whimsical alternative to home-on-the-range Texan style. Founded in 1983 with the release of its first vintage, the Messina Hof Winery actually boasts a wine heritage that dates back six generations to Messina, Sicily. Messina Hof pioneered the Texas wine industry and its influence is evidenced in the guest center, located in a 19th century estate home, originally built as a convent.
Awash in antiques and fresh flowers, ten guestrooms offer private baths and patios overlooking the estate and are decorated in Gothic, English, Mediterranean, French, American, Italian and German themes. The most lavish room is the Lancelot & Guinevere, furnished with a 17th century hand-carved bed, sideboard and cupboard. This gothic suite also features a whirlpool tub, shower and stained glass window. A lakeside deck behind the winery provides great views of the vineyard, and every stay includes a winery tour, wine tasting, wine and cheese reception and European breakfast served with Champagne.
