Texas winery Messina Hoff is working on an ambitious new location in Houston. The Messina Hof Harvest Green Winery is slated to open late this year or in 2020 in Richmond, CultureMap Houston reports, and the complex will include a 130-seat restaurant and patio. Messina Hof says this will be the largest winery in the Houston area.

Located in the new Harvest Green master planned community, the project will be Messina Hof’s second-largest winery. Texas Wine Lover reports that wine will be produced at this location, and that the outpost will become the company’s national distribution hub.

There will be plenty to draw visitors too: besides tasting rooms, a 2,600-square-foot covered patio will be an outdoor drinking destination, and the restaurant will source ingredients from its onsite garden and then diners can watch their food being prepared in an open kitchen.
