An Evening with Rombauer Vineyards
with Reagan Rombauer Blackwood
Wednesday, October 13, 2021
When founders Koerner and Joan Rombauer moved their two children, two horses, and five dogs to Napa Valley in 1972, they arrived armed with an appreciation for the intimate relationship between food and wine. Their appreciation stemmed from Koerner’s great aunt Irma Rombauer having authored the internationally renowned cookbook the Joy of Cooking and his ancestors originating from the winegrowing region of Rheingau, Germany, where wine is considered an essential complement to a meal.
Appreciation bred passion, and Rombauer Vineyards was established in 1980. Forty years later, the winery remains owned by second-and third-generation members of the family.
2020 was a special year for all of us at Rombauer Vineyards, as we marked our 40th year of making wine in the Napa Valley. We are humbled by how far we’ve come since those early days, growing from a handful of barrels in Koerner Rombauer’s garage to a wine brand beloved by many around the world. The recognition we have achieved is the result of 40 years of dedication to quality, passion, investment, and customer engagement. Following in the footsteps of our founders, Koerner and Joan, and now with the second-and third-generation family members, we are grateful for the journey.
As we celebrated this historic moment, we are mindful that Rombauer Vineyards would not be what it is today without the support of our customers and partners around the world. Your loyalty, friendship, and patronage have inspired and guided us through 40 years of business. Your devotion to our family, our staff, and our delicious wines have allowed us to invest in and continually improve our vineyards and winemaking to elevate our customer experience. You have enabled us to pursue our vision of honoring the heritage of the historic regions in which we farm, acting as stewards of the land, and giving back to these communities in a meaningful way.
Thank you for your unwavering support and thank you for sharing The Joy of Wine with us for over 40 years. Our family looks forward to many more years in pursuit of our twin passions—crafting exceptional wines and sharing them with you, our dear friends.
