Friday Pop-Up - Winery of the Month, Martin Ray Wines!

January 3, 2020, 5:30pm - 6:30pm

The name Martin Ray resonates deeply in the history of California Winemaking. Martin Ray was a pioneer, dedicated to crafting single varietal, region specific wine from 1943 through 1972 in Saratoga. Mentored by Paul Masson, he took a burgundian approach to winemaking. Nearly twenty years later, Courtney Benham stumbled upon 1500 cases of Martin Ray wine in a San Jose warehouse.  Recognizing his good fortune, and his intent and drive to produce terroir driven wines, Ray’s historical significance and philosophy resonated with him. Courtney purchased the brand, and has been committed to the production of artisanal wines worthy of the Martin Ray name. Martin Ray joined the Sonoma County Sustainability program and is currently working toward 100% sustainability. We look forward to sharing these impressive wines with you!
