Let’s start with the 40th Annual Wine and Roses Festival at Messina Hof in Bryan. Enjoy three days of fun winery experiences. Enjoy Messina Hof’s Spring Wine Dinner tonight from 7 to 10 pm. The wines and the foods will be bountiful and amazing this evening. Saturday bring a full day of local vendors with fun competitions of grape stomping starting at 1:30. All of the team slots have been taken, but you can root on the teams of grape stompers, watching ever so careful to see the tricks of the trade so you can organize your team for next year. One of the tricks is to clear and keep the drain hole at the bottom of the stomping vat open for the juices to flow fast into the juice vat!

Paul will help you better understand how barrel aging can impact the taste of your wine. Karen brings foods and wines in a garden setting.
