About R.A. Harrison:
Roger Harrison for many in the wine industry has been known as Mr. Botrytis. Since 1983 he has worked at Beringer on the Nightingale wines made from highly concentrated grapes blessed with botrytis cinera (noble rot). These are very rare and hard to make wines. They require special winemaking expertise to maximize the rare weather conditions that produce these rare and noble wines. With the right winemaker and special weather conditions highly concentrated sweet wines such as Chateau Y'Quem in Sauterne, France, can be made.
After 25 years perfecting these rare dessert wines at Beringer, Roger launched his own winery, R.A. Harrison Family Cellars, dedicated to special botrytised wines. The winemaking and grapes selected for these wines are very similar to those used at Chateau Y'Quem.
