Marietta "Old Vine lot #65" Red, $ 17.99
Marietta Cellars is more than a winery producing unique blends. We are a family with all the love, pride, history and struggle that goes along with it. Chris Bilbro spent much of his childhood with his Great-Aunt Marietta. At her table he learned simple good cooking, hard work and honesty. In 1978 Chris gathered these tenets and his guts and began making wine in a rented cow barn. Over the next three decades, Chris produced, bottled, and sold his wine across the country usually accompanied by homemade sausage or minestrone soup from Marietta’s recipes. Today, his sons Jake and Scot run the company and continue to do what Marietta Cellars has always done best. They focus on producing great wine, make sure they offer it at a fair price, and care for the people who work alongside them - just like their father did.
