You’re invited to Messina Hof’s 42nd Annual Harvest Festival! Celebrate the season with a unique experience including grape picking and stomping, wine tasting classes, and our Vineyard Cuisine™ dining.

Each Daytime Harvest event kicks off with an inside look at the Texas Wine Industry lead by CEO & Winemaker Paul Mitchell Bonarrigo. Next, you will receive a hands on experience in Messina Hof’s estate vineyard picking the highest quality Lenoir grapes that are used to make our award-winning  Ports. While in the vineyard, make sure to look for the most interesting and unique grape cluster to enter in the infamous Big Kahuna Contest! Show off your cluster and talent and the audience will determine who The Big Kahuna is for the day. Then the moment you’ve been waiting for… the stomping begins! Complete with your very own souvenir t-shirt, “signed” with your purple stomping feet commemorating your adventure in the vineyard!

Your grape time doesn’t have to stop there, join us for wine tasting classes or a specialty dinner for a full winery experience!
