The members of Gandrake Enterprises, excluding Gandrake himself, are named after wine-related terms: Rothschild is the name of a famous Chateau in France, Shiraz and Malbec are types of red wine, Riesling is a type of white wine, and Glogg is a Scandinavian spiced wine.
This could be a reference to the alcohol-themed names of the Thirstquencher Empire, from this game's predecessor.
