About Us: Marcy Roth
Fifteen years ago I was riding the ferry from Sausalito to San Francisco when I came up with the idea for Bacchus & Venus Wines. I was just beginning to sink my teeth into the food and wine experience of the Bay area, and was inspired to learn more.
I came to California by way of the Florida Keys and Washington, DC where I worked to protect the environment -- National Parks, coral reefs, and the wildlife they sustain.
But the world of wine lured me away - I longed to be my own boss and dreamed of living and working in stunning Sausalito. I spammed my resume out to some of my favorite wineries and got lucky enough to be chosen by the greatest mentor I could ask for, Reed Foster, founder of Ravenswood. I spent five years learning the business at his side, and from side gigs at wine shops, restaurants and other wineries.
Now Bacchus & Venus is ten years old and I am terribly spoiled. The top winemakers of California bring me their wines and help me understand what sets them apart from the rest, how they were grown, and made, and how they are best enjoyed. My staff of young, enthusiastic and experienced sommeliers and wine experts helps me select the best hand-crafted wines California has to offer.
In my spare time, I enjoy exploring the vast California Wine Country, hiking and horseback riding the open space of Marin County. I give back both by volunteering for the In Defense of Animals Wild Horse Campaign, and by donating and holding fundraisers for non-profits that support wildlife and human health.
