Messina Hof R & R

It is time for a little R & R.  Before we head to our state weavers' conference in College Station, Texas we took a short two day detour to Messina Hof Winery, located outside of Bryan, Texas.  Our room was appropriately named 'Messina', but we could have our choice between nine other rooms.
Grapes and wine are featured throughout the vineyard and this was the railing around the balcony outside our room.
Even the bronze statures around the grounds are reflective of wine.
In the evening, as guests, you are invited to the wine bar where you can choose any wine from their menu to enjoy along with a selection of cheese.
The gardens are planted with flowers and herbs (which are used in the restaurant).
Want to have your wedding on the grounds, this is the perfect spot.
We took a tour of the wine making area, along with the processing center.  This was in the storage area where boxes and boxes were stacked waiting for shipment.
On this morning the bottling was in full swing with Muscat Canelli, sweet white wine.
The barrels outside the storage room were hosting Merlot, up next for the bottling process.  If you are ever in the need of some R&R and are in this area, drop into the winery and enjoy a little of this comfort.
