About Rosenthal Wine Merchant
Rosenthal Wine Merchant was founded in 1977 as a humble, one-man retail operation located in New York City but very much outside the mainstream of the wine business. Neal Rosenthal was soon joined by his partner Kerry Madigan and the two expanded their fledgling company from its retail base to become an importer and distributor of fine wine and specialty food products. With the assistance of a small and passionate team, RWM selections are now distributed in 45 states and the District of Columbia.
The objective from the outset was to work as directly as possible with growers who were dedicated to producing limited quantities of the finest quality wines and who shared the RWM passion for “terroir”, that ephemeral “sense of place”. The wines are selected for concentration, purity of flavors, and clarity of expression. All products brought to the marketplace by RWM are produced in as natural a manner as possible; we believe strongly in sustainable and organic agriculture. Our selections have a striking balance between finesse and power which results in exceedingly age worthy wines.
