Noni Bacca Winery wears more medals than a star athlete, a decorated soldier, or a door-to-door medal salesman who wears his inventory around his neck. "The first thing you’re likely to notice after the warm greeting is a wall covered with wine bottles all sporting Olympic-like haul of medals," wrote a Star-News reporter of his visit to the Wilmington winery and tasting room. All told, there are 94 medals, each of which attests to the quality of the reds and whites within the bottles.

Noni Bacca Winery's stellar track record isn't a surprise, considering that owners Toni and Ken Incorvaia literally have winemaking in their blood. Both come from European families with long winemaking traditions: Ken's in Sicily and Toni's in Bulgaria. The couple draws on their traditional winemaking background and modern techniques to produce nearly 70 varietals on the premises. For a decadent treat, try a dessert wine such as the Chilly Bear Icewine, an intensely sweet riesling with notes of apricot and lychee.

But the studio goes beyond the mat, offering an array of fitness machines and bags so trainees can achieve optimal fitness. Utilizing all of Alliance's amenities, instructors lead muay thai, boxing, judo, group strength and conditioning, and Brazilian jujitsu classes—the latter two also offer a women’s-only counterpart class for a more supportive environment. Jiu jitsu also offers children an opportunity to learn self defense and anti-bullying skills.

Captain Brendan Burke is an expert at navigating the waters of the Eastern Seaboard. In addition to competitively racing sailboats in the past, he has spent his life fishing the waters from Massachusetts all the way down to the Florida Keys. With Wilmington Offshore Fishing, Brendan shares his passion for the ocean and maritime sport by welcoming small groups aboard his 28-foot Alemarle center-console vessel—the _Sea Wolf_—and taking them on 4- to 12-hour fishing charters. These charters usually stay relatively close to Wrightsville Beach, although Captain Burke can lead passengers as far as 100 miles away from the North Carolina shoreline.

Captain Burke teaches amateur anglers the intricacies of fishing by showing them how to rig baits, sharpen hooks, and mimic the call of the wild tuna. However, he also encourages passengers to simply relax, fishing rod in-hand as they enjoy the peace and quiet. The waters teem with marlin, snapper, grouper, seabass, mackerel, and more, providing plenty of opportunities for casual enthusiasts as well as serious fisherman seeking a new trophy.
