Vortex Cellars is a small craft winery dedicated to producing high-quality Washington wines. We are a family-run company, with a lot of help from friends. Vortex Cellars' wines are a little eclectic due to our varied tastes and the wide range of quality grapes available in Washington state. We are primarily focused on French- and Spanish-style wines, made with a blend of traditional and modern techniques.
In a community steeped in tradition, Messina Hof Winery & Resort holds its own with a 200-year history of award-winning wines. Although the winery itself was officially established when with the first vintage release in 1983, the rich wine heritage of Winemaker Paul Bonarrigo dates back six generations to Messina, Sicily. Merrill Bonarrigo's family originates from Hof, Germany. Together they have pioneered the Texas wine industry in creating premium wines of distinction and a landmark wine country destination.
