Run Through The Vines! Mesina Hof Vineyards was the site for a really cool road race today ~ the 33rd Annual Run Through the Vines. Just outside of Bryan/College Station, Texas lies the cute little vineyard boasting of quality grapes in an idyllic setting.
The Texas A&M Roadrunners put on the race and did an outstanding job. Runners came from the Dallas area, Austin and Houston areas converging on the vineyard in order to have the opportunity to run amongst the vines.
After the race, we enjoyed a wonderful lunch sipping on a delightful Messina Hof Merlot and eating the delicious food. The restaurant at the vineyard is fantastic! They have daily specials and themenu offered a nice variety to choose from. The winebar located within the restaurant is a perfect place to unwind after a race!
If you wanted to stay for a few nights, there is a lovely Bed & Breakfast on the property. What a great get-a-way that isn't too far out of Houston and a very reasonable drive from either the Dallas or Austin areas. The vineyard hosts a variety of events and weddings so book your stay early!
It was a great day and a great way to start off the weekend. Now I am ready for a nap!
