MV Wine Fest History
Our founders, John Clift and Marnely Murray both have an intense passion for food and wine and the festival is a showcase of that love. John Clift attended International Wine Academy of Rome and is on an endless journey to teach the world about unique wines. He is also co-owner of Vintage MV Wine & Spirits, a unique wine shop on Winter Street in Edgartown.
Marnely, a "wash-ashore" that has lived on island for the past six years, is your go-to MV guide! Our marketing director and co-founder - she's the one that gets the word out there about our festival, as well as a food blogger sharing her recipes on Cooking with Books.
In it's 5th year, the MV Wine Fest is a collection of events during May 11th through 14th focused on bringing the best food and wine to the island - join us this year! P.S.: the events take place on Mother's Day weekend, so it's a great Mother's Day gift idea as well!
Edgartown, Martha's Vineyard
A town located on the island of Martha's Vineyard in Dukes County, MA - a town with a little of everything: oystermen and artists, cooks and coffee drinkers, beach goers and wine lovers, and hopefully soon enough, you!
