Culture and wine enthusiasts are invited to enjoy the budding of the vines on Saturday, April 23, at Messina Hof’s Estate Winery in Bryan. The largest celebration in its 32-year history, the festival will feature its traditional activities of wine tasting, wine and chocolate pairing classes, behind-the-scenes winery tours, artwork from the 26th Annual Texas Wine Label Competition, and a grape stomp competition. There will also be new events like a steak dinner and live music from Texas Country favorites the Parker Heights Band with Brandon Rhyder headlining the show.
“This year’s Wine & Roses Festival will truly showcase Messina Hof’s passion for Wine, Art, Music, and Food, and we welcome attendees from all over the state to join the expected record crowd,” says Chief Executive Officer Paul Mitchell Bonarrigo.

Beginning at 5pm, a $15 cover fee will begin for new festival guests with a portion of the proceeds benefitting Still Creek Ranch. Limited parking will be available on site and a free shuttle will run from Rudder High School to the winery.
