Episode 60 - Sanctuary Vineyards with Inez Ribustello We took the show on the road to the Tarboro Brewing Company (tarborobrewingcompany.com) where renowned Sommelier Inez (AKA Inie) Ribustello introduced us to Sanctuary Vineyards (sanctuaryvineyards.com) of Currituck, John Wright the owner/vineyard manger and Casey Matthews the winemaker. We sat down, not only taste their wines, but to get schooled on the history of their specific piece of land on the outer banks of North Carolina. We rediscovered the fact that North Carolina led the USA in wine production from the end of the civil war through prohibition. We learned how it’s possible to maintain a bird sanctuary, evolve a 3rd generation family farm into a modern day winery, all while convincing your uncle and dad that this is good for business. The wines are delicious, the story is captivating and the location is sensational. Grab a glass, take a listen, sip generously and learn all about this magnificent North Carolina Winery.
