Wolffer Estate

The founder and namesake of Wölffer Estate - Christian Wölffer was a creative vision and a huge passion for life.  These things came together at the property – where his love of horses developed into a vast Equestrian Centre on the Estate, and passion for wine translated into the care and attention given to the treatment of the meticulous vineyards and state of the art winery. 

His career spanned investment banking, venture capital, real estate, agriculture and entertainment parks – but he felt most at home at his weekend retreat at The Hamptons, Long Island.  He purchased 14 acres of land in 1978 and by 1987 had founded his adjacent vineyard.  In twenty years the estate has grown to more than 170 acres, 55 acres (136 ha) of which are planted with vines. 

After his untimely passing on New Year’s Eve 2008, Wölffer Estate pays tribute to his meticulous care, passion and influence, continuing his legacy by developing elegant, food enhancing wines. 

The winemaker Roman Roth, originally also from Christian Wolffer’s Germany, has been making wine here since the wineries inception in 1992.  After extensive studies in Germany, Roman went off round the world exploring wine regions and help to make wine at Saintsbury in California and Rosemount in Australia.  He has consulted for many Long Island wineries and is a great advocate for the region. 

Roman also likes to serenade the barrels with his great Tenor voice – this may contribute to the wonderful musical undertones of the Perle Chardonnay and the Fatalis Fatum!  For more www.wolffer.com
