Neal Rosenthal Wine Merchant at Aloft Hotel

In the late 1970s, Neal Rosenthal set out to learn everything he could about wine. Today, he is one of the most successful importers of traditionally made wines produced by small family-owned estates in France and Italy. Rosenthal has immersed himself in the culture of Old World wine production, working closely with his growers for two and sometimes three generations. He is one of the leading exponents of the concept of "terroir"—the notion that a particular vineyard site imparts distinct qualities of bouquet, flavor, and color to a wine. Join us as the debonair John Paine, Regional Manager for Rosenthal since 2006, leads us through an epic journey of authentic French and Italian wines. This will be a night to remember!
