Moonlit Harvest will kick off the festival featuring the Blessing of the Vines, followed by an evening of grape picking and stomping in the Messina Hof Estate Vineyard. Dinner will feature a fabulous vineyard cuisine buffet with a wide selection of complimentary wines for guests to enjoy!
Summertime is here and we are excited to come together as a family and celebrate Messina Hof's 43rd Annual Harvest Festival. Honoring the harvest tradition of grape picking and stomping, we invite our family to have a hand in Messina Hof's history. In response to COVID-19 Messina Hof has continued to make the health and safety of our guests and staff our top priority. To ensure the comfort of our guests we will have the following precautions in place during our Harvest Season:
- Limited guest count for scheduled Daytime, Moonlit, and Specialty Dinners Hand sanitizing stations
- Limited-contact wine sales and dining
- Face coverings (masks)
- Frequent cleaning and disinfecting of common surfaces
- Daily cleaning and sanitizing of venue spaces
- Encouragement of social distancing
ABOUT MOONLIT HARVEST
Bring the family out for a fun-filled evening of picking and stomping the very grapes that go into making Messina Hof’s award-winning Ports. You’ll also receive a souvenir “Harvest Crew” t-shirt signed with your very own purple stomping feet. Let the fun of Harvest continue by joining us Friday and Saturday nights for specialty events that feature world class Vineyard Cuisine expertly paired with Messina Hof’s finest wines. We can’t wait to share this wine-making experience with you!
ARE YOU THE NEXT BIG KAHUNA?!
While you're harvesting grapes find the most unique grape cluster and enter the "Big Kahuna" contest. Before the stomp, all contestants will not only present their cluster to the audience, but they will also perform a special talent.
