n 2011 Messina Hof Hill Country Winery opened its doors in Fredericksburg, the second largest wine tourism destination in the country. Sitting on nearly 10 acres in the heart of Texas wine country along Highway 290, this winery also has its own vineyard. The Lenoir grapes grown at this location go into the making of more traditional style ports.

We visited several wineries along 290. Messina Hof had a friendly staff and top notch wines. I would go back to Fredericksburg just to go to Messina Hof.
