A Sit-Down Tasting

We love rosés, whites and sparkling wines, but IWM’s true passion is for red wines. Whether a Big Red, a collector red, a lithe and nimble red, or a delicious red, we can’t get enough red, red wine. Join us as we celebrate the dog days of summer with a tasting dedicated to red wines. From French Pinot Noir to Super Tuscans, this tasting will feature red wines that are ideal for August enjoyment, those hot days and cool nights that lead us to fall’s harvest bounty. Guided by knowledgeable IWM sommeliers, this glorious tasting, complemented by meats and cheeses, is devoted to exploring the lushness, the power, and the unexpected finesse of red wines from some of our favorite producers. It’s big, it’s beautiful, and it’s only available at IWM, the world’s leading authority in Italian wine.

A Sit-Down Tasting

Italian wine can be confusing--more than 2,000 indigenous grapes, thousands of years of winemaking history, and all those hard-to-pronounce names can make Italian wine feel a little intimidating. Join IWM NYC as we demystify Italian wine by pouring the ABC’s of Italian wine: Amarone, Brunello, Barolo and Chianti Classico--ast well as a few other surprise bottles that will thrill your palate. These all delicious, easy-to-love Italian bottles, all presented by IWM knowledgeable sommeliers and accompanied by regional meats and cheeses, and whether you’re an Italian wine aficionado or an Italian wine newbie, you’re sure to walk away with a greater appreciation of Italy’s vino. Come and taste Italy, all without leaving the comfort and beauty of Union Square!
