Messina Hof is a great place to visit. Their wine selection is outstanding from dry to sweet. They offer red, white, rose wines. My favorite wines are the Papa Paulo Porto and Texas Sherry. Both are sweet and robust without the need for fortification. The place is not too far outside of Fredericksburg with lots of parking,

I have a hard time finding good sweet wines! We came here and I ended up leaving with 3 bottles of incredible wine! Even my husband liked the wines!

A very nice winery, conveniently located on Hwy 290 into Fredricksburg, TX. Tastings were $10 for 5 samples and included a complimentary wine glass. They have an extensive variety of wines, so there are many choices to try for both the sweet and dry lovers. We were there after 4 pm and they have a happy hour when one can... More

Impressive vineyard and winery. Have a wide selection of wines that almost anyone can find something to enjoy. Appreciated that they had several sparkling options as well. Welcoming atmosphere to taste in, and they never made you feel out of place. One of my favorites!

Looks like it was built a week ago(no character) The staff was so uninterested in serving anyone. They knew no history on any of the wines to be tasted. Wines were so below par compared to all of the surrounding area. Would never go back here. Not worth the wasted time.

Wonderful time at this winery. $10 to sample 5 wines and you get to keep the glass. Staff was very informative about the selections. Looking forward to trying out the location closer to home in Grapevine.

We first found this place through a Texas Winos tour. We have since returned several times on our own for the wines which are pleasing and unique. I do believe that there is something here to satisfy everyone's tastes. (I am particularly fond of their black label port-style wine.) The staff is always very helpful. JR somehow manages to remember... More

My spouse and I went tasting and we were impressed by their broad selection of wines. JR, our server, was very friendly and knowledgeable! It was a very good experience and we'll definitely go back to try more.
