Courtney Benham is the proprietor and principal winemaker of Martin Ray winery (formerly Martini and Prati), located in the Russian River Valley in California, which he purchased in 2003. He grew up in a winemaking family in the San Joaquin Valley, and has dedicated his life to honing his craftsmanship. The winery itself dates back to the 19th century, established in 1881 as the Twin Fir winery, and became Martini and Prati in 1902. Since it was able to produce sacramental wines during the Prohibition (the only way to legally stay in business), it has the distinction of being the oldest winery to be in continuous operation in Sonoma. A line of signature wines with fruit sourced from Napa, Edna Valley and Stags Leap are labeled Courtney Benham, produced and sold as part of the Martin Ray portfolio.  Read less

No time for a lengthy write up, I want to get back to my wine. Simply put, Courtney Benham takes premium quality grapes from other top wine makers, and make their own fabulous and MUCH less expensive wines. Buy, you won't be disappointed.
