Our Purchasing Philosophy
Our wines are carefully selected to include only products that offer the best flavor, a true value, a great story, and are produced using sustainable practices. We focus on small-scale agriculture emphasizing organic and biodynamic methods whenever possible. We seek out wineries run by women and the BIPOC community to offer a wide representation on our market shelves. We are always on the lookout for new and interesting wines to bring to our community. If you come across a favorite bottle in your travels, or from a restaurant wine list, or anywhere else, feel free to reach out to our wine team and we’ll be happy to seek it out for you. Cheers!
Our Wine Program Director
Joe Watson has worked in every facet of the food chain before joining us here at Rosemont in 2019 as our Wine Director. His food journey began by managing an organic livestock farm in Vermont, then completing a butcher apprenticeship before heading off to the French Culinary Institute in New York. He’s now found himself among the shelves of our markets selecting wine for you to enjoy. He’s happy to chat wine, food, or farming any time, and is always available to hear suggestions for the ever-evolving wine program here at Rosemont Market & Bakery.
