Courtney Benham has seen wine from every which way, and his small artisan winery is the culmination of years of dedication. During more than two decades in the wine business, Courtney has come to know wine from many angles. Growing up, he worked hard in his dad’s Central Valley vineyards. In his twenties, with his brother he created the fantastically successful Blackstone brand. After selling that venture, Courtney created Martin Ray Winery to produce high-end varietal wines in honor of this legendary California winemaker. His Courtney Benham Wines give consumers another great choice and has led him to become more involved with the production of wine and different winemaking techniques.
