ABOUT HARVEST Bring the family out for a fun-filled day of picking and stomping the very grapes that go into making Messina Hof’s award-winning Ports. Stay for tour and tasting, and Vineyard Cuisine lunch buffet. Round out your afternoon with a food & wine pairing class. You’ll also receive a souvenir “Harvest Crew” t-shirt signed with your very own purple stomping feet. Let the fun of Harvest continue by joining us Friday & Saturday nights for specialty events that feature world class Vineyard Cuisine expertly paired with Messina Hof’s finest wines. We can’t wait to share this winemaking experience with you!
ARE YOU THE NEXT BIG KAHUNA?! While you're harvesting grapes find the most unique grape cluster and enter the "Big Kahuna" contest. Before the stomp, all entries will not only present their unique cluster to the audience, but will perform a special talent. Whether it's miming, singing, dancing or showing off professional wine tasting skills--each contestant will perform their talent and the audience will determine the winner..
