Roman Roth is a gifted winemaker who often times is heard singing in an enviable tenor voice echoing amid the barrels of Wolffer Estate. Most of all Roman gives “voice” to his wines, produced by profound experience developed on three continents. It all began with the dream of a 16-year-old boy from Rottweil in Germany’s Black Forest region.
He earned his Master Winemaker and Cellar Master degrees from Weinsberg’s College for Oenology and Viticulture. In 1992, Roman became the first winemaker at Wolffer Estate Vineyard. He established the estate’s distinctive character—European elegance combined with the typicity of Long Island terroir. He has dedicated himself to promoting not only the wines of Wölffer Estate, but of Long Island, where he has consulted with numerous vineyards and is currently the President of the Long Island Wine Council.
Recent honors include having two Wolffer Estate wines make recent “Top 100” lists from Wine Spectator and Wine Enthusiast; being honored as the highest-rated wines in Long Island history; and having Wolffer Estate wines served in the White House over the past two decades.
