About Martin Ray Winery
Proprietor Courtney Benham purchased the Martin Ray label in 1990 and acquired the historic Martini & Prati winery in July 2003, which is now the home of Martin Ray Winery. Since he acquired the winery, it has undergone massive upgrades (and the work continues!) and is quickly becoming a popular tourist destination in the Russian River Valley.

As VP of Direct Sales, Straight's goal is to apply her experience and expertise to successfully grow all DTC aspects of Martin Ray Winery (an incredibly dynamic company) and to have a great time doing it. Stop by the winery for a visit, say hello to Sue and the hospitality team and experience the alchemy of great wines, wonderful people and fabulous Russian River Valley location that is Martin Ray Winery.
