Messina Hof Announces Brand New Off Dry Collection


February 28th –  Messina Hof Winery announces the release of its Off Dry Collection, a brand-new collection of three wines offering an intriguing spin on classic white wine. The off dry style of these wines offers consumers a uniquely balanced tasting experience that is not often found in the market. These wines appeal to a wide range of palates with their ability to pair with a variety of cuisines and their delightfully bright flavor profiles, including balanced notes of fruits and florals in each bottle. Messina Hof has crafted each wine with a refreshing body and perfumed aromatics for the ‘not too dry’ and ‘not too sweet’ wine lovers. As part of the Artist Series, all wines feature artwork from Messina Hof’s Texas Wine Label Competition held at the Wine & Roses Festivals every year. This label features “Turquoise Geode” by Kit Rae, the 2021 winner. The release of the collection will be celebrated at a special event at the Estate location in Bryan, Texas in March. The new wines are as follows:

  • Off Dry Gewurztraminer 2023
    • The Off Dry Gewurztraminer is a bright and charming white wine, offering a delicate dryness to enhance the flavors of lychee, ginger, and mango on the palate. This varietal pairs well with seafood, pasta, and spicy dishes.
  • Off Dry Muscat Canelli 2023
    • The Off Dry Muscat Canelli balances tart flavors of apricot, peach, and melon with softer flavors of passion fruit and jasmine, offering a slightly sweet and refreshing finish. This varietal pairs well with vegetables, poultry, and spicy dishes.
  • Off Dry Riesling 2023
    • The Off Dry Riesling is a soft and silky varietal with subtle sweetness, combining notes of fresh grapefruit and spiced pears on the nose with flavors of green apple and lime zest on the palate. This varietal pairs well with seafood, pork, and spicy dishes.

“We are so excited to announce the arrival of Messina Hof’s new Off Dry Collection,” said Karen Bonarrigo, Chief Administrative Officer and Owner of Messina Hof. These three wines are stunningly balanced between bright floral and fresh fruit notes while having a hint of sweetness on the finish. Taste wines with dynamic complexity and modern sophistication. They are the best of both worlds!”


The Off Dry Collection will be available for purchase in late March at all Messina Hof Winery locations, select wholesale retailers and online while supplies last.
