Messina Hof Tripytch

By In Photographs
A rare privilege, a few weeks ago, of a chance to sample some Texan wines here in the UK. You don’t see much, if any, Texan wine over here so to have these samples sent direct from the winery – Messina Hof – was a delight. The tasting, organised by Big Pinots, formed part of a country-spanning Twitter taste-off with bloggers scattered across America and in France in addition to us in the UK. All participants having previously met during the International Wine Tourism Conference earlier in the year.

The labels are highly attractive – the summer hats recalling lazy summer days down by the river, at the Henley Regatta for example, the workers in the vineyard giving a nod perhaps to those ‘inspiring the workers’ posters from the Soviet Era with the cherubs on the third remind me at least stone statues and sculptures found throughout European wine producing areas.

Messina Hof Wine Label Tripytch – the latest in the regular Sunday Snapshots series highlighting photographs with a wine related theme, whether bottles, glasses, vineyards or the back scenes of wineries.
