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 »

  • Unless you bought them with aging potential in mind, a fair few of your 2013 pink and white wines won’t be drinkable by next spring. Guzzle down the last of those quick-to-turn bottles, cellar a few others, and ready yourself for the onset of fall wines. Even if you do not live in a starkly transitional climate, this a great time to think about ... Read More

  • V V - Sorry to hear about that 2012 Liquid Farm Golden Slope Chardonnay; it's too bad you can't just notify a vineyard via the Internet and get a free replacement bottle for one that is not up to expectations.  Tonight after watching the grandkids for a few hours, we arrived home ready to relax with a new Malbec I picked up earlier today at the ...

  • The status of South African wine in the USA is lamentable. Even in New York City, where the most diverse selection of wine styles and origins in the world spoils imbibers, South Africa barely appears on the radar screen. The US has no heritage links to the Cape, and much of what has come ashore here in the 20 years since the end of apartheid has...

  • I see probably a half dozen or more wines on that list from Gallo that I drink or would drink without a problem.  Martin Codax is effectively a version of Gallo for certain regions of Spain--they made, distributed, and exported all kinds of stuff.  Good Albarino, if not stellar.  Wm Hill was a nice place to visit last year and the stuff they sel...
