Martignetti Companies began as a family-owned grocery business in Boston’s North End. After the repeal of Prohibition in 1933, the Martignetti family received the first retail license for beverage alcohol in Massachusetts. Through the years, they grew their retail business to include a number of wine and spirits shops across the Boston metro area. In the 1970’s, they expanded the distribution and wholesale business, focusing on fine wines. In the ensuing years Martignetti Companies steadily grew its distribution businesses in New England through organic growth, supplier appointments and acquisitions. The portfolio has grown to encompass the broadest selection of fine wines and spirits in the marketplace, from unique artisanal producers to global leading suppliers.
