The Texas Department of Agriculture has recently announced a series of videos featuring eight different wine trails around the state of Texas. The first video was released last week, with a new video debuting every Tuesday.
The first trail to be featured is the Bluebonnet Wine Trail, which is in South-East Texas. The trail runs from Brennan to Montgomery. There are seven wineries on the Bluebonnet trail, including Messina Hof, one of the biggest wineries in the state. The owner and winemaker at Messina Hof, Paul Bonarrigo, is featured quite a bit on this video. Paul is one of the most interesting personalities in the Texas wine industry, and he has turned Messina Hof into one of the most successful wineries in the state.
The wineries that are a part of the Bluebonnet Wine Trail are:
- Colony Cellars
- Pleasant Hill Winery
- Windy Winery
- Messina Hof Winery
- Retreat Hill Winery
- Bernhardt Winery
- Cork This! Winery
