Stuffed but impressed, I venture to 40-year-old Messina Hof Winery & Resort to do a tasting of five of its dozens of varieties.
At the wine-tasting counter, I chat with a woman named London, who lives in Austin but is visiting her grandfather’s nearby farm for the weekend.

Opening in the Autumn of 2018, The Texican Court, by Valencia Group, will be located across from the Irving Convention Center.Featuring a retro motor-court vibe, the chic property has fire pits, an outdoor pool, poolside cabanas that look like military tents, and a hip on-site bar called The Canteen., solicitation, and predatory criminal sexual assault are very serious charges, which can have a devastating affect on your future.As a liberal Austinite and University of Texas graduate, I’m irked by virtually everything about the town—its ultraconservative vibe; its small size and lack of things to do; and, of course, its residents: the fanatic, Longhorn-hating Aggies, who live for their ridiculous Texas A&M University traditions. Was it possible for the homeland of all things Aggie to actually become a spot worth visiting? After driving 100 miles east from Austin, whizzing past goats, donkeys, and horses in pastoral fields, I arrive in Bryan and put on a hard hat to tour The Stella Hotel.The property was still under construction, but my guide, general manager Peggy Trott, set the scene with buzzy phrases usually reserved for urban settings, like “seasonal farm-to-fork fare,” “a speakeasy-style bar,” and “free bike and paddleboard rentals.” Though this property would be right at home in any big city, the very thing the Stella is named after—its spectacular star-watching—could only be achieved in this type of rural location.
