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
  • Individual stomping bins will be provided
  • 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 DAYTIME HARVEST
Bring the family out for a fun-filled day of picking and stomping the very grapes that go into making Messina Hof’s award-winning Ports. Enjoy a tour and tasting and a Gourmet Vineyard Cuisine™ brunch box containing a Treberwurst quiche, crisp potato pancake, fresh fruit cup, and chocolate croissant. 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!

BIG KAHUNA PICTURE STATION
While you're harvesting grapes, find a unique grape cluster to show off in a "Big Kahuna" picture! It can be the biggest or silliest looking cluster, or it can remind you of a person, place, animal, or thing!
Visit our "Big Kahuna Photo Booth" and snap a picture with your prized cluster. Make a funny face and keep the spirit of our traditional "Big Kahuna" contest alive, safely. Want to commemorate the moment? Get your photo on a custom Messina Hof 2020 Harvest Festival wine label!
