Messina Hof Harvest Green Winery and Kitchen - link

Many, many years ago, Messina Hof in Bryan, Texas was the first winery that I ever visited. That was my first introduction to grape growing and wine making. 

That visit would not be the last, I would taste at Messina Hof many more times over the years. My latest in Houston Food Finder takes a look at the newly opened location in the Houston suburbs.

Dry with a medium body, medium alcohol and medium acidity with a fresh cherry flavor. It worked well with our dinner of soft chicken tacos with tomatillo salsa. Whole Foods has it for $13.99. 2010 Cantele Primitivo - Aromas of black plum, dark cherry and licorice. Dry with a medium body, medium alcohol, medium tannins and medium acidity with flavors to match the aromas and a slightly spicy, long finish.
