Rick Newnham

Tasting Room Manager

After a successful career in real estate, Rick Newnham concluded life was too short not to live on a lake. Today Rosemont’s Tasting Room Manager resides on lovely Lake Gaston with his wife, Mary.

Rick is a native of upstate New York but aspirations to be a professional golfer played into his decision to attend North Carolina State. “I needed more than a few months of seasonal weather,” he says. He struggled to qualify for main PGA events, though he was able to place in a World One-Club Championship after shooting a 73 using only a 6-iron.

“That was my claim to fame,” says Rick, a former PGA Club Pro at Raleigh Country Club. “It’s such a difficult game to get good at.” Four years in, he suffered a significant sprain to his left thumb that moved him in a new professional direction.

Rick fell into real estate, and multiple times he was named sales agent of the year, relying on strong customer service skills that allowed him to excel at new home sales and construction.” I never wanted to come across as a salesperson, so I do conversational selling,” he says. “That translates well for the winery. I just enjoy talking to people.”

Rick and Mary were Wine Club members at Rosemont, and one day after a chocolate and wine pairing event, he inquired about a job. “A few weeks later, I was on the schedule,” he says.

Rick started at Rosemont in 2016, thinking the part-time position would help him land some real estate leads. But he became increasingly interested in wine to answer questions that he’d often receive from guests.

“I wanted to be smarter about wine,” Rick says. “Someone would ask about the Traminette, and I’d research where the grape came from and who the parent is. I put myself through a training program I created that we use today.”

Today at Rosemont, Rick can speak on every aspect of the winery, from the grape varietals and history of the vineyard to the varied wine selection that pleases even the finickiest palate. He transitioned from Tasting Room Ambassador to his current role in management, where he handles operations and works with local artists, vendors and crafters in addition to visitors.

“I always try to make everyone feel welcome when they’re here,” he says. “I try to gauge what they’re interested in and how much interaction they want and go from there.”

Rick and Mary have been married 17 years; ask him and he’ll tell you the exact number of days, as it’s a count the couple tracks on a white board at home. During their free time, you’ll most likely find the Newnhams on their pontoon boat or jet skiing. Rick also dabbles in photography, and often snaps photos of the vineyards as they evolve with the seasons.

Rick and Mary share their lake house with two dogs, MaddyRose, a border terrier, and Gracie, a pug.
