The Mad Rose Group
Founded in 1977 in New York City by Neal Rosenthal, the Mad Rose Group is above all a specialist in the importation into the US of European wines of exceptional quality produced in limited quantities by artisanal family domaines in France, Italy, Switzerland and Catalonia. These wines are chosen as the finest expressions of their respective terroirs and represent the very personal voices and talents of the men and women who produce them.
Over the decades, Neal Rosenthal has built formidable relationships with many artisans and vignerons, innkeepers and chefs, all of whose work can be shared and appreciated through the Mad Rose Group.
Today, the Mad Rose Group continues its search for the finest in wine (Rosenthal Wine Merchant), food (Mad Rose Specialty Foods) and travel experiences (Mad Rose Journeys) and now draws within its family the unique and compelling hotel, La Closerie les Capucines, a gem of Arbois in the heart of the French Jura.
Importantly, the enterprises of the Mad Rose Group work together to connect people to place.
They are bound by three values: respect for the artisan – for his/her craft as well as financial viability, an unwavering respect for the natural world and a passion for helping others better understand it, and honoring of the human imagination – doing all within our power to foster creative thinking across business, the arts and science.
