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.
