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 red wines of Italy. From Brunellos to Barolos, Super Tuscans to Super Piemontese, Aglianico to Valpolicella, this tasting shows why Italian reds are world famous. 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.

A Sit-Down Tasting

Italy has more than 2,000 different indigenous grapes, the most of any country in the world (though Portugal may beg to differ). One way to make sense of this number of grapes--and the extraordinary number of delicious wines made from them--is to focus on one geographical area. Join us as our knowledgeable IWM sommelier lead you through a tour of most emblematic, delicious, and outrageous expressions from Italy's North. We'll be pouring wines from Valpolicella, Vallee d'Aosta, Friuli and more, and our knowledgeable sommelier will guide you in understanding the panorama of northern Italy's terroir, traditions, and grapes. Accompanied by regional meats and cheeses, this sit-down tasting offers aficionados or Italian wine newbies the most delicious education in authentic wine that you can get outside of Italy. Toe to tip, IWM is where Italian wine lovers come for fine Italian wine.
