Mad Rose Specialty Foods is an evolution of Neal Rosenthal’s passion for the artisanal and his respect for terroir. Borne from the success of Rosenthal Wine Merchant and Neal’s immersive travels throughout Europe, Mad Rose Specialty Foods brings our customers carefully curated products sourced according to the same elevated standards as all of our wine. We work closely with trusted family-run producers that have honed their production methods through multiple generations of care for their land and respect for their product. The result is an exceptional selection of quality food products that will change the way you cook, taste and feel.
Neal Rosenthal leaped from the waters of corporate law into the world of wine forty years ago. Since then, Rosenthal Wine Merchant has established itself as one of New York’s most respected wine importers, boasting a portfolio of wines from small-batch, artisanal producers throughout Europe. The relationships Neal has cultivated with these producers over the years is one of mutual love and respect, with a shared dedication to showcasing their commitment to terroir and quality craftsmanship over mass production. With Rosenthal Wine Merchant as the foundation of Mad Rose, the garden has grown to include Mad Rose Specialty Foods and Mad Rose Journeys.
