"Are you serious?! This is amazing!" Roman exclaimed through crackled soundbites over the phone yesterday when we told him the news that he had been chosen as one of wine's most inspiring people by The Wine Industry Advisor, the de facto online network reporting on all things wine.
The news came while Roman is still over in Tokyo, tirelessly promoting and educating on Long Island wines. The moment felt serendipitous - Roman embodying exactly why the article was honoring him: his drive, his never-ending passion for the product he makes, and his commitment to constantly elevating our region despite all adversity.
We are so honored to work for and alongside such an incredible force and would like to extend our congratulations to Roman. We hope you have been able to enjoy his wines, ciders, spirits, and infectious personality just as much as we have the last 30 years.
