Some brief comments I have received for a few of my presentations...

“you have an amazing talent in your ability to succinctly and clearly convey a great deal of knowledge” – Great Wine Seminar, Florida (see Archives to learn more about this event)


“you received so many accolades from the audience – far more than any other speaker” – Duquesne Club, Pittsburgh


“you put on one of the most enjoyable and educational tastings I have had the honor of attending” – California State University, Fresno, Dept of Enology


“your presentation was outstanding” – Sonoma County Grape Growers


“your presentation romanticized the wines and literally brought them to life” – Epcot Wine Festival, Walt Disney World

“The SWE would like to have you back as a speaker…your evaluations in  both sessions were extremely high and the sessions were very popular”Society of Wine Educators

(these comments were for the very first seminars I presented to SWE...I have since spoken often at their annual conferences)

A testimonial for the Zoom seminar I presented to the Commanderie de Bordeaux in Dallas in August 2020 (pictured below):

"Roger Bohmrich’s Zoom tasting with the Dallas Chapter was absolutely fantastic.  Roger is a pro at his craft and knows how to engage his audience, whether in-person or via Zoom Roger’s Zoom tasting with us was our first Zoom tasting and there was some trepidation about how well it would be received by our Commandeurs.  The Zoom tasting was very well-received and upon looking back at the after-event emails and texts, the most often used word was “amazing”.  Our chapter eagerly awaits our next Zoom tasting with Roger."

Here is a testimonial for the seminar I presented to the Commanderie de Bordeaux in Atlanta:

Roger flew to Atlanta to lead a blind tasting comparison of classified versus non-classified Bordeaux wines. Roger is charismatic, sophisticated and approachable - a rare combination. He led a lively discussion, and the attendee comments we received were universally positive. The tasting was educational, fun and interesting, so much so that multiple chapters in our national organization have retained Roger to present the same tasting for them. Our group included both long-time Bordeaux collectors as well as some who had almost no wine knowledge, and there was something for everyone. Everyone walked away eager for more. We highly recommend Roger for any wine event.

These longer recommendations are posted on my LinkedIn profile:

I write to recommend, with total enthusiasm, Roger Bohmrich MW for his expertise as a marketing strategist and brand analyst for the wine industry.  We engaged Roger for several projects all of which he completed perfectly, within budget and on time.  The projects Roger worked on with us included: 

1.     An analysis of, and recommendations for, Rhone wine producers from north to south that we might consider for our portfolio.

2.     An analysis of, and recommendations for, Loire valley producers from east to west that we might consider for our portfolio.

3.     An outline for educational seminars for distributors and retailers.

4.     A detailed marketing analysis of one of our producers including product review, packaging review and price positioning (vs competition) with recommendations.

Roger is a gifted perfectionist and a consummate professional.  We have thoroughly enjoyed working with Roger and expect to do so again in the future.

I have had the pleasure to work with Roger Bohmrich on many occasions throughout the past five years and I have been continually impressed by his performance.

Roger has given extensive presentations of the US market to our winemakers from the South of France in order to prepare them in their meetings with potential clients. His presentations were always well documented, tailored to our audience and delivered in flawless French. But even more impressive than Roger's expertise in the market is his ease of communication. Roger continually engaged with our producers and was always available to answer any questions our guests might have had, sometimes devoting a great deal of time responding to a specific request.

Our audiences' overwhelming feedback, coupled with Roger's ease of communication and responsiveness when planning event logistics, has prompted us to book him bi-annually for five years now. I warmly recommend him to anyone in need of an expert in the US wine market, or anything related to wine!
