The personal website of

Master of Wine

Roger C. Bohmrich

Vintrinsic Solutions

Welcome to Vintrinsic Solutions


I have created this site for business contacts, friends and anyone else who may have an interest in my background.

In the pages that follow, there is information pertaining to my professional wine consulting services and wine

education activities.  You'll also find a brief biography describing my lengthy career in the wine trade as well as

examples of my work as a lecturer, writer, educator, and moderator.

I hope you enjoy the site. I perform all webmaster duties myself, and I am always trying to improve the appearance and content. Please give me your feedback!

You might enjoy reading a few of the articles and reference material I have created over the years. I'm working on the second edition of an e-book which compiles the Q&A from Local Wine Events entitled Answers to Wine Questions from Real People. Wine Tasting Vocabulary is a succinct lexicon of wine tasting terms. The Onion of Taste explores the complex factors which govern how each of us experiences the taste of wine and food. Dealing with the Heat is inspired by my love of spicy foods and provides practical wine pairing advice for chile addicts. Old Rules, New Pleasures challenges conventional thinking about wine and cheese and proposes an updated, flexible approach. And the two companion guides, Wine and Style and Wine and Food are based on a classification of wine by style attributes, and the foods that match each style grouping. Last, the page on Terroir has numerous quotations from my published articles devoted to this popular and mystifying topic (and links to sites to read the complete versions).
