Messina Hof Grapevine Winery is a full estate with so much to do and see. You could easily spend an entire day (or night) exploring all that they have to offer. Complete with a bed and breakfast, a restaurant, and, of course, a winery, this stop offers lots of photo opportunities. The bed and breakfast, known as The Villa, has been voted as the Best Romantic Getaway in the state of Texas by the Official Best of America. Getting a room at this establishment will provide many Insta-worthy moments. Whether or not you choose to stay the night, be sure to check out the Tasting Room at Messina Hof. The Downtown Grapevine location is the first urban winery by Messina Hof. While visiting, make sure to walk upstairs to enjoy the second floor. This includes a veranda overlooking Main Street which is the perfect place to enjoy the evening.
No matter what type of wine you like, Messina Hof has you covered. With over 50 wines to choose from, there is something that every wine lover will enjoy. This location is situated inside of a replica of the Wallis Hotel, which was torn down in the 1930s. You can see the iconic “sidewalk judge” sitting outside of the door on a bench who is said to monitor those coming and going. Why not grab a photo with him as well?
