The weather is chilling, and the vineyard is preparing for the colder months ahead. November brings with it a season of reflection and gratefulness. This past week we celebrated the United States Marine Corps’ 237th Birthday on November 10th. Paul Mitchell’s Marine Corps service will forever be a large part of the MessinaHof tradition, and we have had the privilege of hosting a Marine Corps Birthday Ball here at the Vintage House Restaurant for the past few years. This year’s celebration was fantastic. The Marine Corps traditions continued with the reading of General Lejeune’s Marine Corps Birthday Message, the Commandant’s Birthday Message, and the passing of cake between the oldest and youngest Marine present. Semper Fi.
In remembrance of Veteran’s Day – Thank you to all former and current service members for your heroism and service. We honor your sacrifices and dedication to this great nation. If you are interested in ways to give back to our armed forces, keep in mind our Fisher House Cabernet Sauvignon this holiday season. Paul Mitchell worked extensively with the Fisher House during his last duty station with Wounded Warrior Battalion East. The Fisher House Foundation provides support for military families while their loved ones are receiving medical treatment. A portion of the proceeds for each bottle of Fisher House Cabernet Sauvignon sold will go back to the Fisher House Foundation. This limited edition wine is available at both winery locations and select retailers.
