In all of our lives, if we live long enough, tragedy occurs. What can you do but remember the good times and use that positive energy to press on. One comment that mother made to me that I will never forget, Jimmy (Mother called me Jimmy) “I think grapes are a special gift from God. Humans and animals love grapes. More grapes are grown on this earth than all other fruit combined, and grape vines will grow almost anywhere”. I believe if you become involved in the wine business it should be a long lasting endeavor, outlasting the founders and many generations of the family.
To encourage that dream I named the winery after my four granddaughters. Ok, here goes the name. Starting with the youngest granddaughter I chose to use the first two letters in each ones middle name. Anna Mae, Bella Rae, Savannah Elise and Jessika Lauren. Maraella, the winery name
The varietals we have to offer are growing yearly and while we will always produce and promote wine made from locally grown grapes and fruits, we will continue to introduce traditional viniferous grapes to our brethren in the south. We do have on the shelves for sale our flagship wine “Cabernet Sauvignon” handcrafted, estate grown and bottled. Our 2010 Vintage has been awarded Gold and Silver medals from Alabama to California. Our 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon, 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon, 2013 Riesling, and our Carlos (a dry white muscadine) have won Gold and Silver medals in competitions in San Francisco, Los Angeles and Huntsville.
Maraella Estate Farm Vineyards & Winery are located in the picturesque foothills of the Appalachia Mountains. Established in 2005 by the Lee Family. Maraella Estate Farm Vineyard & Winery is the realization of my dream of a family wine business. We promise the embracement of the principle to make fine wines. Wines of distinction that represent the finest varietals.
We welcome you to the winery, wine tasting 11:00 am to 6:00 pm Monday through Thursday and 11:00 am to 7:00 pm Friday and Saturday.
