Party Like It’s 1776

In light of Governor Abbott’s Executive Order issued last week, all of our Tasting Rooms and Wine Bars are closed for on-premise consumption until further notice.

The good news is, by this point, we’ve learned to see the glass as half full, and we feel confident that you can still enjoy a wine-derful 4th of July holiday celebrating one of our favorite vintages — 1776!

In honor of at-home Independence Day celebrations, we’re bringing you 2 delicious, simple recipes — our Messina Hof 4th of July Lemonade Punch and our Shrimp Brochette with Messina Hof Raspberry Gewürztraminer Chipotle Sauce! With our curbside pick-up, discounted shipping, and home delivery options, you can still get your hands on some Messina Hof and make these celebratory recipes!

When life gives you lemons (and closes your favorite Wine Bar), roll with the punches and make  Messina Hof 4th of July Lemonade Punch!

1. Fill a glass 1/4 of the way with ice.
2. Throw in a frozen Bomb Popsicle for some festive flair!

Of course, we can’t forget about the snacks! Try one of our favorite simple, summer recipes — Shrimp Brochette with Messina Hof Raspberry Chipotle Gewürztraminer Sauce! Tangy, bright, and light, this snack will make fireworks go off way before the night!
