Roman Roth, Winemaker at Wölffer Estate Vineyard, Named a Partner


Date: 02/12/13

Roman Roth, the winemaker at Wölffer Estate Vineyard for 21 years, has been named a partner by new co-owners Joey Wölffer and Marc Wölffer.

“It is great timing to name Roman a partner just after his 20th anniversary and during the 25th anniversary of the estate. Roman’s dedication and incredible passion has helped build the reputation of our wines and the vineyard,” stated Marc Wölffer.

“We are excited about working together with Roman for hopefully the next 20 years,” stated Joey Wölffer. “Having this type of continuity in a family- owned business is most important.”

“I am honored to be named a partner by the children of Christian Wölffer,” said German-born Roth, who came to Wölffer in 1992. “It was very exciting to come to America and together with Christian Wolffer, have the opportunity to build a unique vineyard and winery at a very special location. For me, it was the American dream. Now I am thrilled that Joey and Marc will continue Christian’s dream. We will combine our energy and together with the fantastic team at Wölffer Estate, we will make great wines for many years to come.”

“The Grapes of Roth,” the company Roth and his wife Dr. Dushy Roth created to produce award winning Merlot and Riesling wines, will be brought under one roof and sold under the Wölffer Brand in the near future.
