Noni Bacca Winery... a Family Tradition
Established in 2007, Noni Bacca Winery has risen to be one of Eastern North Carolina's favorite wineries.
Toni and Ken Incorvaia, proprietors of Noni Bacca Winery, relocated to Wilmington, NC from Buffalo, NY where their wine-making skills were shaped and developed by their respective families, each of European descent.
Toni's grandfather, Evan Kostadinoff Zagorchin and his wife Keva, from Bansko, Bulgaria; and Ken's family, Carmelo and Concetta Incorvaia, with all of their young children from Licata, Sicily, came over to the United States on ships in the early 1900's. They brought with them all of their old-world traditions.

What's in a name?
What's behind the name Noni Bacca? Getting back to family, Noni Bacca is the childhood nick name for Toni. As a toddler, she called herself Noni, mis-pronounced for Toni and Bacca, well, that's just a one year old babbling. When asked to say her name, she said Noni Bacca. From there, the name stuck and she is still referred to by family as Noni Bacca.
