HOUSTON – This Wine Club Wednesday, we are featuring a Texas winery that values family and is passionate about celebrating together over a meal.
The 3 wines we’ll be tasting today are designed for just that!
Co-owner of Messina Hof Winery, Karen Bonarrigo, shares with us the meaning behind her family wines.
FATHER AND SON RIESLING
Why It’s Special: Grown in the Texas High Plains, this wine is a tribute to the German heritage of Messina Hof and the Riesling grape. The Father & Son Cuvée is in honor of Riesling being the first wine made by the partnership of father and son, Paul VI and Paul VII. Serve chilled at 45°F.
Tasting notes: Semi-sweet, light bodied white wine. It has fresh and delicate floral aromas with flavors of honeysuckle and citrus zest. The beautiful acidity in this wine make it a perfect pairing for spicy Cajun cuisine or blackened seafood.
