Chicago Loses Illinois Wine Pioneer Bob Rohden
Bob Rohden, an original supporter of Illinois wine, passed away last month. Bob was a friend and consultant to many Illinois wineries. Publisher’s note: During June, Bob, who often went by “BobZaguy,” and I spent an hour and one half together discussing the history of the Illinois wine industry. Bob loved Illinois wine and the people who make it. He understood the origins of Illinois wine better than anyone and he will be missed.
