Messina Hof Cabernet Barrel Resv

Winemaker's Notes:

King of red wine. Grows exceptionally well in Texas and adapts well in our environment. When Paul and Merrill married in 1977 they took with them on their honeymoon a wonderful Cabernet Sauvignon from France and one from California. It was a celebration of love and marriage. Every time they drink a Cabernet it brings us back to that wonderful beginning of their lives together. Our Barrel Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is a wonderful blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Fermented on the skins for 28 days, this wine develops rich pepper and spice flavors. This wine is a full-bodied red wine with luscious oak and berry flavors. It is a perfect wine for beef, lamb, venison and spicy sauces. It was a gold medal winner at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo International Wine Competition. Serve at 65 degrees F.

Messina Hof Winery & Resort, a Texas vineyard established in 1977 by Paul and Merrill Bonarrigo, is rooted in the union of two family heritages. Winemaker Paul Bonarrigo’s family dates back seven generations to Messina, Sicily. Merrill’s family is from Hof, Germany. Stroll through the vineyard. Smell the roses. Sit by the waterfall. Relax with a glass of crisp Riesling or rich Shiraz. Indulge in fresh vineyard cuisine. Linger over candlelit conversation. Enjoy a quiet evening among friends or with the one you love. We invite you on this journey and hope that we may share with you the romance and tradition of Messina Hof here in the heart of Texas and agricultural center of the Brazos Valley. Messina Hof Winery & Resort, a Texas vineyard established in 1977 by Paul and Merrill Bonarrigo, is rooted in the union of two family heritages. Winemaker Paul Bonarrigo’s family dates back seven generations to Messina, Sicily. Merrill’s family is from Hof, Germany. In Paul's family, the first born male is always named Paul, and at the age of 16, begins to learn the 200-year-old family tradition of winemaking. These winemaking skills have been passed down through each generation. The newest family winemaker, Paul Mitchell Bonarrigo, graduated from The Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland as a marine and joined the family to carry on the 200 year tradition. In 1983, Messina Hof's first year of developing commercial wines, Paul and Merrill produced 1,300 gallons. Our Papa Paulo Port, still one of our most popular wines, was the first wine made at Messina Hof. Messina Hof harvests from a total of 500 acres around the state. The 100 acre estate winery in Bryan produces the famous Papa Paulo Port. Messina Hof is the second largest tourist attraction in Brazos County and brings in more than 250,000 visitors per year.
