The Messina Hof Wine and Roses Festival at the Messina Hof Estate in Bryan, Texas, will celebrate the 38th anniversary of the budding of the vines and the blooming of the roses on April 23. Guests will gather to enjoy wine tasting, live music, local vendors and artisans, wine and food experiences, their famous grape stomp competition, and more! A portion of the proceeds from Wine and Roses benefits the Arts Council of the Brazos Valley.
The 32nd Annual Messina Hof Texas Artist Wine Label Competition is the centerpiece for the 38th Annual Wine and Roses Festival. Texas-based artists were encouraged to submit pieces inspired by the theme of “Exploration.” The top 10 artist competition finalists will be on display throughout the weekend, and guests will be able to vote on their favorite to determine the winning artwork that will be featured on a future Messina Hof wine label.
