A local winery is getting some big time recognition.
This past weekend, Messina Hof was recognized at the San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition.
The winery won Best of Class for their Private Reserve 2015 Merlot and eleven awards in all.
Messina Hof says each wine they entered into the competition won a prize.
In all, seven Texas wines won best of class and the only other state that beat that was California.
