Wolffer Siblings to Carry on Legacy - by Carrie Ann Salvi - East Hampton Star
Twenty-five years after Christian Wolffer established the Sagaponack vineyard and winery that eventually became Wolffer Estate Vineyard, his daughter Joey Wolffer and son, Marc Wolffer, announced on Monday that they will be the new co-owners of the operation. At a press conference held in the Sagaponack tasting room, the two said they look forward to continuing the legacy built by their father, who died four years ago in a swimming accident in Brazil. The estate began as Mr. Wolffer’s weekend getaway, before he planted vines over potato fields and eventually began to produce world-class wines. To mark the Tuscan-style winery’s 25th anniversary and the siblings’ takeover of the venture, a number of celebrations are planned and five anniversary wines are to be introduced. Marc Wolffer, who also owns vineyards in Spain and Argentina, managed restaurants in Manhattan and Havana, then became the food and beverage manager at the Sea Life theme park in Hawaii, which his father owned. He said he is especially fond of one of the anniversary wines, Christian’s Cuvee Merlot, named for his father. Ms. Wolffer, a jewelry designer, owns a company called Styleliner, described in a release as “a luxury accessories boutique on wheels.” She and her husband split their time between New York and Sag Harbor, with eventual plans to live on the estate. Mr. Wolffer will travel between Sagaponack and Palma de Mallorca, Spain, where he lives with his wife and four children, and has opened three restaurants. He and his sister purchased the interests from their other two sisters. “It is not their passion,” Ms. Wolffer said on Monday. Complimenting the Wolffer Estate management, the siblings assured that the current structure would remain in place. Projects are in the works to expand nationally and internationally, Mr. Wolffer said. Despite poor economic conditions, the vineyard has enjoyed a substantial increase in profits in the last few years, and the demand for its wines, produced under the supervision of the winemaker Roman Roth and vineyard manager, Richie Pisacano, presently exceeds its supply. Judy Malone, the vineyard’s marketing and communications director, said she thinks Mr. and Ms. Wolffer’s father would have loved the decision. “It is poignant,” she said, “to carry on the name.”
