Over forty years later, the Rosenthal portfolio encompasses nearly every viticultural area of France and Italy, as well as Switzerland’s Vaud and Valais districts, Spanish Catalonia, and, most recently, four of Austria’s major winegrowing regions. Every wine bearing the iconic Rosenthal back label speaks clearly of its origins, and we pride ourselves on extraordinarily close relationships with our growers – multi-generational, family-run enterprises that share the company’s founding commitment to the notion of terroir.
