Cape Fear Vineyard & Winery

Meet Alex Munroe, owner of Cape Fear Vineyard & Winery.

  • Do you have a nickname?
    • No nickname
  • Is there a food you will not eat?
    • I was being hosted at a dinner party in South Korea once and they served me a live squid, complete with moving tentacles, rolling eyes and a protruding beak. In south Korea it is a delicacy and I was honored to be served it, but never again will I eat one!
  • What is your favorite movie?
    •  Out of Africa. I backpacked alone through Africa when I was younger and the scenery and the people are beautiful… the movie did a great job describing the culture and beauty.
  • What is the one quality you admire most in others?
    • Integrity. I was taught early not to judge a person when they are successful, judge them when they are down and how they handle themselves then.
  • What is the next place you would like to visit?
    • Venice, Italy
  • Where would you take a tourist in town?
    • The Battleship. It still amazes me that 5,000 people lived and worked on the battleship during wartime.
  • Describe your perfect day off?
    • I’m a pilot and a sailor so I will often fly early in the morning and watch the sunrise from 7,000 feet above the earth, have a nice lunch in Charleston, then fly home and hop on my little sailboat and enjoy the sun setting over the water on a broad reach sipping a crisp gin and tonic.
