Messina Hof
2010 Sophia Marie Rosé


Paul and Merrill Bonarrigo, owners of Messina Hof Winery and Resort in Texas, trace their family heritages to Messina, Sicily, and Hof, Germany. Their Sophia Marie Rosé, named for their first grandchild, is composed entirely of estate-grown, hand-picked Lenoir grapes. Sweet and slightly effervescent, this young and fruity wine is not a typical rosé.
