Yes Way, Canned Rosé!

5.2

If there’s one thing Houstonians know, it’s that there’s no better way to beat the heat than with a nice glass of rosé. Well, how about a can of the good stuff?


Just in time for summer, Bryan-based Messina Hof Winery has unveiled its sustainably packaged wines, perfect for sipping on-the-go — like when folks are floating the river, heading to the beach, or taking in an outdoor concert.

The pretty cans come in two varietals: the winery’s sweet red wine, Beau, and its dry style rosé, which is made with Texas Grenache grapes and features notes of strawberries and oranges. Messina Hof, which hosts events throughout the year like murder-mystery dinners and an upcoming Mother’s Day brunch, is the largest producer of Texas wine, and last year celebrated its 40th year in biz.

There is much more than meets the eye, and in sharing a little bit about Janelle, she was not only an international hair extension educator for over 14 years, but brings extensive expertise to blondes. She rounds this out with her previously launched namesake cosmetic line, which is a perfect complement to her belief that “Beauty is our Business”.

AS WE PRODUCE our second annual “Cool 100” list, we’re reminded of our thoughts as we debuted this feature last year. We acknowledged that deciding who and what is cool is not only a moving target but also entirely subjective. And that attempting to “rank” the coolest people in Houston is a fool’s errand, one that will leave us immediately open to criticism. “You think she is cooler than him? You included this person?! You left off that one!?"

SUMMER’S HERE, AND the pop-up art exhibits have begun. Maybe it’s a response to the relentless heat and unpredictably weird weather, but during June through August, the city’s more forward-thinking (and often relatively young) art mavens embrace an approach to curation and presentation that is both cost-conscious and community-centric.
