In 1977 the Martin family moved to Knott's Island. Upon their arrival, they started their farm with Peaches and Scuppernong grapes. It was a decade later in 1987 when they started planting Vinifera grapes. Little did they know when they started this crop that it would be the only successful and thriving Vinifera planting on the coast of North Carolina. In early 1994, this key component lead to the success of Martin Vineyards and Estate Winery. A year later they became licensed to sell their wonderful estate wines. There are other things that have made Martin Vineyards successful. North Carolina's coast of rich soil overlooking the scenic Knott's Island Bay has played an integral part. With the use of the most current and innovative technologies along with their viticulture techniques, they have been able to "farm for flavor." With all this and a little help from Mother Nature to control the climate, Martin Vineyards has been able to make award-winning wines. So bring the family, picnic lunch, and Read more »

  • Martin Ray Vineyards & Winery Pinot Noir Russian River Valley 2014


    Rich, deep black cherry aromas that deliver incredible depth of fruit and are only slightly tempered by floral spice. In the mouth, this is decorated with black cherry and red currant notes, a touch of medicine, and baking spice leading up to the oak and smoky wood spice on the finish. Read More

  • Martin Ray Vineyards & Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma County 2014


    Intriguing ripe berry aromas with wood spice and a flinty salinity on the nose alongside dark black cherry notes. This is expansive and quite fruity on entry with red fruit notes of ripe cherry, raspberry and a touch of medicine, soft structure and a finish of blueberry and delicate spice. Read More

  • Martin Ray Vineyards & Winery Chardonnay Russian River Valley 2015


    Warm, thick fruit forward aromas of baked apple, pear and vanilla caramel with some lemon hiding against the spice. This is a bit thin in the mouth but bursting with acidity, candied lemon drop notes towards the front of the palate, cream and butter towards the back and a warm stone fruit blend of peach and dried apricot welling up at the finish.

  • Sounds like storage was good for all. Did everyone else provide a few bottles each as you did? Any info about how they've acquired and stored the bottles? Always worrisome when you see labels like the Faively's, but then I've had TBAs, etc. from the Mosel and Rhein with far worse labels that were in great shape after 50 years--they just were sto...

  • Martin Ray Vineyards & Winery Sauvignon Blanc Russian River Valley 2015


    Grassy notes of golden berries, lemon zest and peach on the nose. Delicate on entry, this develops a tart acidity through the mid-palate and shows more lemon zest, white peach and blossom notes with a green note of beeswax and cut lawn towards the finish. Read More

  • The majority of wines on the market these days are meant to be consumed within one to five years. This is a natural law. Producing wines that can sit in the cellar for decades is time-consuming and expensive. There is a time and place for wines that age and adventurous palates are required.
