Ownership Structure

The Martignetti Companies are 100% owned by Carmine Martignetti (50% ownership) and Carl Martignetti (50% ownership). They are the 3rd generation of the Martignetti family to own the company.

Company Background

The origin of Martignetti Companies dates to 1908 with the establishment of a small grocery store/wine shop in the North End of Boston. The distribution/wholesale company was established shortly after the repeal of Prohibition in 1933. Martignetti Companies was issued license Number One in Boston following the repeal. The company remains family-owned to this day with brothers Carmine and Carl each having 50% ownership.

Martignetti Companies of New Hampshire, formerly Jet Wine & Spirits, was founded in 1983, by local businessmen Jason Treisman and Gerry Allard with D. Dean Williams. In 1993, Martignetti Companies purchased Jet. Sadly, both Gerry Allard and Jason Treisman have passed, while Dean Williams remains as Executive Vice President and General Manager today.

The company represents some of the finest, most prestigious and respected wines & spirits in the world. Together with these partners, Martignetti is a great supporter of charitable giving within our communities around the state, encouraging all to give in any way they can, because everyone has something to give.
