Travel with Mad Rose
Travels in Mad Rose’s universe
As the founder of Rosenthal Wine Merchant, Neal Rosenthal has spent more than forty years as an ambassador for the small family-owned domains and artisanal growers behind some of the world’s finest wines.
Decades of intimate contact with the terrain and traditions of Italy, Switzerland, and France have provided Neal with a deep connection to these places — and the sights, tastes, people, and secrets that give them their extraordinary character. It is from his desire to share this wealth of experience and relationships that Mad Rose Journeys was born.
Mad Rose Journeys offers unrivaled access to some of the most exclusive experiences in the world. As our travel companions, you will have the opportunity to sample food, wine, and produce so rare it may not be available for sale, explore local cuisine under the guidance of globally renowned chefs, and learn from the craftsmen and artisans who live and work in Europe’s most storied culinary regions.
We invite you to meet the producers – Neal’s extended family – while tasting their creations directly in their company. Revel in their stories and matchless insight while immersing your senses in the glorious results
We invite you into four distinct regions of Europe for deep immersions in their distinctive wines, cuisines and cultures :
