Martin Ray winery is located in the heart of Russian River Valley, near Santa Rosa, California.

In 1990, Courtney Benham was walking through an old warehouse in San Jose when he chanced upon a forgotten treasure – 1,500 cases of library wines, dating back nearly four decades, made by California wine pioneer Martin Ray. Exploring further, Courtney found old wooden crates filled with letters, press clippings, winery brochures and price lists from Ray’s 40 years as a winemaker. Courtney then contacted the Ray family estate and purchased the entire wine library as well as Martin Ray wines. He’s spent the last 20-plus years shaping it into a vision of his own, and is now producing a collection of award wining wines.

Our wine tasting will focusing on the Santa Cruz Mountains district. Where the grapes are sourced from 2 historic vineyards- The Fellom Ranch Vineyard & The Cooper-Garrod Estate Vineyard.
