Medina River Winery: one of the finest wineries of the region

An organic chemist by weekdays and a vintner by weekends, Matthew Blais is the owner of Medina River Winery. Over the years, Matthew turned his love for fine wine into growing vines and making wines while expanding his knowledge of gardening and grooming the vines. In 2016, the Medina River Winery was officially opened. He started with 40 vines in 1-acre land while slowly perfecting the wine growing process. Matthew joined hands with Kenneth DuBois, who specialized in business development and strategies, and shared a similar love for growing and fermenting varieties of wines. Together, they both started growing grape varietals of Sangiovese, Mourvèdre, Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cayuga, Blanc, Dubois, Zinfandel which were well adapted to Southern climate producing red wines, white wines, rose wines and dessert wines. On top, Matthew’s brother added his woodworking expertise in maintaining a proper tasting room with an array of wine storage and comfortable sitting arrangements.

Organic wine farming

The vineyard is well-groomed and lovingly maintained with an organic approach. The winery sought to work on their vineyard as organically as possible while limiting the use of preservatives in their wines.

The winery produces small batches of wines that sell out quickly both in the glasses and in bottles
