Messina Hof

What a fun weekend! Actually, I've been having the best week ever. No summer school, no job, and lots of fun! This Saturday I went and visited one of my oldest friends (we realized we have officially been best friends for TEN YEARS! What?!) in College Station. Outside of CS, there's a town called Bryan. I like to refer to Bryan as hell on Earth, but for reasons I don't feel like divulging. Anyways, in Bryan there's a winery called Messina Hof so we decided to go on a tour and tasting!

I am a wine-o, so I thought it was super interesting learning about the different types of grapes and how they ferment them and all that jazz. After the tour, we got to taste 4 different wines. A Chardonnay, a Zinfandel, a Rose, and a Reisling. Reisling wasn't my fave, but that's ok. And we learned some pretty sweet techniques on how to change the taste of the wine by oxidating it with your mouth. It's chemistry, yall!

Hope your weekend was as relaxing as mine!
