Melvin Wine was born on April 20, 1909 in Braxton County, West Virginia. His great uncle, Jack Wine, is remembered by county musicians as a top-notch fiddler, and Bob Wine, his father, was a respected fiddler and is the source of a large part of Melvin’s repertoire. Melvin says that most of his older, unusual tunes have come down from his great grandfather, Smitty Wine. Originally produced by Larry McBride and Gerry Milnes, Executive Producer Margo Blevin.
