ake off your shoes, and get comfortable. Harvest weekends aren’t the least bit pretentious at Messina Hof Winery & Resort in Bryan, Texas. How aloof can you be when you’re walking around with purple feet stained from stomping grapes?
“My grandfather said when you marry, you want to find a woman who has a fat foot,” quips winery co-founder Paul Bonarrigo. But you don’t need big feet―or an oversize knowledge of wine―to enjoy one of the Harvest Celebration weekends that he and wife Merrill host each summer. They go out of their way to make you comfortable.
