“Great Pick-your-own Peaches”

Martin Farm and Winery
Reviewed 21 July 2012

We like to drive here to pick peaches. The wine tasting room is average. It is fine for what it is-- an orchard and a pleasant diversion.

We planned a trip to this vineyard for my sister's birthday. We called several times ahead and checked their website. We went through the hassle of driving 45 minutes from the Outer Banks to the Currituck Ferry, rode the 45 minutes, then drove to the vineyard. Once we found the shanty winery, there was a sign that they were closed because of the heat! We had even called that same morning and they said they would be open from 12-5. When the lady who works the orchard finally tracked down someone to come meet us, she acted like we were imposing and rushed through a lame wine tasting. She did share some facts and history about the local grapes but it did not make a difference at that point. This could be a nice attraction but the business is not run well. Do NOT waste your time or effort getting to this remote vineyard.

In late September every year, my husband & I take the ferry from Currituck to pick grapes at Martin's Vineyard on Knotts Island. We usually pick about 15 lbs. & they are almost all gone by the time we leave to return home to Virginia a week later. Several times we have visited in June & picked the most delicious peaches.

While on Knotts Island we visit Mackay Island National Wildlife Refuge & highly recommend it to nature lovers. Wildlife is abundant which is great for anyone who enjoys photography as I do.

This winery on Knott's Island is not much to look at initially but the wines are really good considering the location and the owners are great people. My wife and I really liked the Grand Ole Osprey red wine and bought several bottles.
