n 2011 Messina Hof Hill Country Winery opened its doors in Fredericksburg, the second largest wine tourism destination in the country. Sitting on nearly 10 acres in the heart of Texas wine country along Highway 290, this winery also has its own vineyard. The Lenoir grapes grown at this location go into the making of more traditional style ports.

We visited several wineries along 290. Messina Hof had a friendly staff and top notch wines. I would go back to Fredericksburg just to go to Messina Hof.

We arrived and were promptly scolded by the young man at the bar for not "checking in" at the cash register. We were each given 5 tokens for $10, which seemed fair. The bars were overcrowded and they did not have enough staff pouring on...More

Well educated and mannered host. Knowledgeable and understanding of our limited knowledge of wines. Helpful and courteous on every pour! The Messina Hof house is certainly on a class of their own! Don't leave Hill Country without stopping here!!!
