Hosted by: Robin Kelley O’Connor
European Wine Specialist & Director of Education

Almost everyone comes to love Italian wines through the wines of Italy’s North--Nebbiolos from Piemonte, Sangiovese from Toscana, Pinot Grigio from Liguria, or Amarone from the Veneto. This special wine-tasting lunch takes a dip into Italy’s South, Campania and the Amalfi Coast, to be exact, to explore the wild, powerful and elegant terrain of a winemaking region that’s near and dear to our hearts. Led by IWM Wine Specialist and Director of Wine Education Robin Kelley O'Connor, this special four-course lunch will take you on a journey across Campania. You’ll enjoy wines from cult favorites like Galardi and De Concilliis, and we’ll introduce you to the wines of Raffaele Palma, the rising star of the Amalfi Coast. Along the way, you’ll dine on delicious dishes prepared by our own in-house kitchen, make new friends, and discover new appreciation for the overlooked region of Campania. From Fiano to Piedirosso, and all that lies in between, Campanian wines will amaze you; join us and learn why we love the wines of Italy’s South!

It’s not a soccer match. It’s an opportunity for you to compare the wines of France and Italy side by side, the makings of an entirely delightful Saturday afternoon. In this Studio del Gusto tasting, hosted by Certified Wine Educator Robin Kelley O’Connor, we’ll be matching French and Italian wines by type, grape composition, style, and drinking experience, all in the effort to give you with an unparalleled opportunity to compare and contrast the wines of the world’s two greatest winemaking countries. Spend a Saturday at IWM—you’ll sip wines from producers like Didier Dagueneau, Gravner, Château Plince, Luciano Sandrone, Jaboulet and Palari; you’ll nibble on regional meats and cheeses; and you’ll come to only one conclusion: the clear winner is you!
