Barbara Marinacci

Apparently, and surprisingly, nobody connected with the Peter Martin Ray Vineyards property told you about the very detailed memoir/biography titled "VINEYARDS IN THE SKY: The Life of Legendary Vintner Martin Ray," by Eleanor Ray, with Barbara Marinacci. It was initially published in 1993, and an updated edition (437 pages) came out in 2006. Eleanor Ray was MR's widow; Barbara Marinacci, MR's stepdaughter. It is available from online book dealers. Moreover, 21 articles about MR by Barbara Marinacci were published by the wine literary journal, Wayward Tendrils Quarterly, between 2005 and 2008, under the title of "Vinaceous Correspondents: Martin Ray's Friendships with Eminent Oenophiles." It is fully available online, at no cost. Many statements about MR and his life history made in that "Wine Terroirs" article are incorrect. He was a very complicated person, with "messianic" ambitions and a cult leader personality, as well as underlying (hidden) and unresolved sexuality conflicts.
