Roswitha
A little background… Our family has been in wine production for five generations, first in Bordeaux, France, and now in California.  And two of our three children are following the tradition: one as a producer in Burgundy, France, and the other at a strategic-level worldwide for the largest wine & luxury group in the world. As an international political adviser my life has been a permanent adventure and our children could not understand my role very well.  While in college they thought their father was a CIA Agent!  So we started the winery here in California in 1998 to give them a more “regular” image of their father’s work….
For a sip and a few laughs
Roswitha recently attended a major wine tasting event in San Francisco.  Eight sets of three wines had to be blind-tasted and the tasters had to find the French wines that were hidden among the California wines. This had nothing to do with the quality of the wine, but more with the “wine ethnicity” - based on the differences in alcohol levels, sugar content etc. between the French and California wines.  Among some 120 “knowledgeable wine enthusiasts” tasting the wine at the event, Roswitha came in “first” with six findings out of a possible eight.  She missed the Champagne and the Sauvignon Blanc but recognized the Chardonnay, the dry Rose, the Cab, the Merlot, the Syrah and the Pinot Noir. So follow her expertise!  See her tips on wine tasting.
