Messina Hof Winery & Resort in Bryan,Texas just released a special wine of which 100% of the profits will go to helping those devastated by Hurricane Harvey. The wine’s name Resilience reflects the attitude and work of Texans during times of trouble. The Resilience website page says: “The devastation of Hurricane Harvey was shocking and terrifying, but Texans are strong and resilient. We get up when we are knocked down and we stand together when we are threatened. All Texans are united in the effort to rebuild what was lost and help those that are in need.”

Messina Hof’s Resilience wine was produced with a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese and Malbec. Currently 600 cases are available, which is expected to raise near $50,000. Resilience is available at the Messina Hof winery locations, online and in some stores in Texas.

The money raised will be donated to organizations such as Feeding Texas.

The press release from Messina Hof offers a quote by the CEO. “By happenstance, the evening Harvey blew in, we were harvesting our Lenoir grapes at the Messina Hof Hill Country Vineyard. While a memorably turbulent harvest weekend, we couldn’t have imagined what some of our fellow Texans would endure,” said Messina Hof’s Chief Executive Officer Paul Mitchell Bonarrigo. He continued, “We feel incredibly blessed to be largely unaffected by the storm and recognize the long road ahead for many of our friends, family, business partners and customers. We intend do our part and hope that we can lend a hand through this product release.”

We visited the main location of Messina Hof Winery & Resort in Bryan and experienced a delightful time. The main location offers a full restaurant, a villa and more. We also enjoyed visiting their second location in Fredericksburg, Texas where several cabins are available for lodging. Wine Trail Traveler has two articles about these winery locations: Bryan, Texas and Fredericksburg, Texas.
