Did the TS serve a Chateau Martin winery?
I'm not aware that CM owned a winery in Tidewater Southern territory,
but it wouldn't have mattered. CM bought cheap wines in bulk wherever
they could get them, shipped them east, and bottled them under their
own label for sale to those who were interested in what the Brits call
"plonk." Premium wines from California, which are now recognized as
world class, were not, at that time, widely distributed in other parts
of the country, and in any case were notably absent from CM's marketing
plan.
