When Marty and Alex Lagina are not spending all of their time working on the wines for Villa Mari Vineyards, they are busy searching for lost treasure. In 2013, they spent a good portion of the summer on Oak Island, which is a small island off the eastern coast of Nova Scotia in Canada. Being of the adventurous type, they decided to dig for treasure and historical artifacts that they believed could be buried on the island. They were not the first to try and find the elusive “Money Pit” on Oak Island, but with years of experience in the gas and oil industry, Marty was able to employ extremely modern and innovative techniques to help search for the treasure.
While hunting for the treasure on Oak Island, they were approached by a producer to help document their search. After learning more about the curse on Oak Island and the historical significance of the location, interest grew swiftly in the secrets of the island. History Channel aired the 6 episode series titled, “The Curse of Oak Island” which drew upwards of 3 million viewers per episode and people were immediately captivated by what the Laginas were trying to achieve. Now with more support than ever, they are back looking for treasure on the island which will be aired on History Channel later this year as season two for The Curse of Oak Island.
p.s. I have a brother who lives in Williamsburg, MI...may have to venture over to Old Mission the next time I'm there and check out your winery!
Good luck with the hunt. Debby and I are also going to have to stop by your vineyard someday to sample some TC grown wine. And say "Hi!" to Craig for me.
On pins and needles for Season 3, Thank You ALL!
