Native Oregonian, winery entrepreneur, James Martin founder of “Copa Di Vino” will be making his national television début on March 20, 2011.
ABC’s primetime reality show “Shark Tank” is 20 minutes of fame that could make a huge impact on both the Columbia Gorge wine region and James Martin himself who’s self-funded startup dream, has grown to a national story.
James Martins company has gained international recognition by first winning the World Champion Best Wine bottle in 2010,
and then becoming the first winery recipient of the Dupont Packaging Award for Innovation Excellence.
Copa Di Vino has developed a patented process to bottle wine directly into a wine glass. This allows wine enthusiasts to open a single serving, instead of an entire bottle, drinking straight from James’ elegantly designed reusable cup. James has fostered an industry wide debate similar to screw cap versus cork, highlighting how wine bottles are cumbersome and inefficient.
Interest in Copa Di Vino and James’ personal story compelled ABC to add a second filming on-site in The Dalles Oregon at the home of his wineries, in The Historic Sunshine Mill.
