Grape Creek Vineyard - Wine Tasting

Messina Hof - Messina Hof Winery and Resort in Bryan, Texas, was established in 1977 by Merrill and Paul Bonarrigo, VI. Paul and Merrill Bonarrigo were part of the early Texas agricultural group that pioneered the Texas wine industry. Paul’s family in Sicily has been making wine since the 1800s. The Bonarrigo tradition of winemaking was reborn in the United States when Paul Bonarrigo (also known as Paul VI) started creating Messina Hof wines in Texas. Messina Hof is now the most awarded Texas wine in national and international competitions. Visit the Winery and Resort in Bryan. 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.

Grape Creek Vineyards

Jeff?s Corner 7-18-14Since last weeks photos were such a hit, I thought I?d go to HEB and take some snaps of the grapes in the produce department. When I did, however, I was told to cease and desist. They thought I was undercover from Wal Mart, attempting to steal their trellising techniques.Thwarted, I decided to take some pics from the Montepulciano vineyard so you could see what was happening up on the hill. As you can see, the little pooters are doing quite well. They are too picture perfect not to share with you again this week.By the way, at the All Star break, our beloved Grape Creek Clusters are two games up on the Washington State Wannabees, and five ahead of the hated Napa Valley Nobodies. Andy Timmons? High Plains Harvesters are making a move, just six back. The Oregon Pinot Envies are in last place. More later, down the stretch... #jeffscorner #montepulciano #gcv #txwine

Texas Hill Country #1
on The New York Times
31 Places to Go This Summer

"Who needs Europe? The Texas Hill Country, west of Austin and north of San Antonio, might be the next best thing to crossing the Atlantic. The region is lush, colorful and, unlike much of the pancake-flat state, dotted with beautiful green hills that are evocative of Tuscany or the south of France. Moreover, the region is speckled with 22 wineries that buzz with food and music festivals year round. And towns like Fredericksburg offer a taste of the Old World, with German-style biergartens and schnitzelhauser. "

5 Eco-Friendly Wineries

Pedernales Cellars, Texas

Composting, recycling, and natural pest management is just the starting point for Pedernales Cellars. By building underground, this Texas Hill Country winery takes advantage of the area’s natural limestone to provide a cool and steady environment for case storage, slashing the facility’s energy consumption in half. Removal of invasive plant species and cedar overgrowth from the property has also led to the reemergence of previously lost seeps and springs. An added bonus? The tasting room features local and sustainable products like Bella Vista Ranch’s olive oils and t-shirts made from renewable bamboo fibers.
