A Special Friend, A Special Vineyard in Roy Estate

Recently, Charles Roy from Roy Estate passed away unexpectedly. Charles was such an inspiration to everyone he met with his positive attitude, boundless energy and great enthusiasm.

I met Charles a few years back, and was elated to try his first vintage of Roy Estate Cabernet and Roy Estate Red Proprietary Blend. The wines were incredible--showing such elegance, charm, and finesse to mimic the personality of such an incredible man as Charles. I couldn’t wait to place these wines on our wine list and tell our clientele the story of how Charles was from NJ, then moved to Napa Valley after purchasing the Johnnie Miller Estate. Charles and his lovely wife, Shirley, were so proud to start the production of Roy Estate Wines. These wines are some of the top quality wines made in Napa Valley today, and I encourage everyone to try them at the Inn or whenever you have the opportunity.   

I will miss Charles coming to visit as he often did when traveling to NJ, but look forward to the continued success of the Roy Estate wines to be carried on by his wife Shirley. My heart is saddened by the loss of Roy, but his spirit will live on in the wines that bear his name.
