A Sit-Down Tasting

Summer is just around the corner, and with Labor Day on the horizon, it's not too soon to stock your cellar with the wines you'll want to enjoy all summer long. Italy's warm weather, coastal regions, and easy living make for natural summertime pairings. A knowledgeable IWM sommelier will guide you through some of our very favorite warm weather wines, help you learn what pairs with summertime's trickier dishes, and show you how Italy's Amalfi Coast, Tuscan hills, and off-the-beaten path wines make your summertime even more delicious. Pouring from a selection of red and white wines, this tasting event, complemented with regional meats and cheeses, will set you up in style to enjoy summer's heat--while keeping your cool.

A Sit-Down Tasting Dinner

The Colle Massari family of estates stretches across an enviable swath of Tuscan countryside, and its holdings include two of our very favorite winemakers, Grattamacco in Bolgheri and Poggio di Sotto in Montalcino. IWM invites you to get to know Colle Massari a little bit better at this special five-course dinner, hosted in concert with Emanuele Gastel, a born-and-bred wine buff and the brand ambassador for Colle Massari. Grattamacco's Super-Tuscan wines have long been IWM client favorites, and this special dinner will select from a range of the estate's recent bottlings; likewise, Poggio di Sotto is much beloved for its aromatic, caressing Brunellos, and this tasting will spotlight some favorite vintages. These wines, along with bottles handpicked by Emanuele from Colle Massari's lineup, will serve as the inspiration for IWM's own Chef Mike Marcelli and his in-house kitchen staff, who will create courses to complement these wines with aplomb. IWM's wine dinners are always unique opportunities for our clients to get to know and to love their favorite wines even better; this will be our first event with Colle Massari, and it is sure to be a sheer delight!

Rosés come from all corners of the wine world, and they appear in a wide variety of styles, from soft and sweet to steely and bright. Join IWM as we celebrate the optimistic, sunny side of summertime wines with this tasting dedicated to rosé.
