The Juicy Fruit Story

My name is Island Mike. I made that name up when I was running fishing and island tours. Not very original. But when my wedding business grew I was kinda stuck with it since that was the name everyone knew.

Anyway, I have a story similar to a lot of ex-pats (while technically we are still in the USA, it feels like a foreign country down here sometimes), I got sick of “regular” living up in the states.

The winery has humble beginnings. I started making wine with starfruit simply because we couldn’t use/give away all the starfruit our tree produced. It seemed like such a waste.

My wife, she’s West Indian, gives me my local cred.
