A Sit-Down Tasting

In the US, they're called "orange wines," in Europe "skin-contact wines." Whichever terminology you use, they are all the fashion, which is a little ironic considering that this style of caramel colored wine made from white grapes date back thousands of years, originating in Armenia and Georgia. In many ways, the tale of orange wines goes hand-in-hand with the tale of natural wines; it's rare to find an orange wine made by a producer who doesn't abide by non-interventionist protocol, and indeed, the important producers of these wines in Italy hold a firm belief in non-interventionist agriculture and non-interventionist winemaking. Join IWM as we explore the wild, unique, unusual world of orange wines at this special tasting, accompanied by regional meats and cheeses. It’s the perfect way to celebrate fall, welcome Halloween, and expand your palate with those white wines that “taste like a red.”

A Sit-Down Tasting Dinner

Piemonte's white diamonds meet Barolo, Brunello, Franciacorta and carefully selected wines at IWM's highly anticipated annual white truffle dinner. If you love Alba's most sustainable delicacy, the tartufo bianco, you won't want to miss this dinner that pairs truffles with wines from some of the great masters of Italy. Truffles flown from Piemonte will be at the centerpiece of this special event as IWM's own Chef Michael Marcelli and his in-house kitchen staff design a dazzling multi-course menu, carefully paired with fantastic wines from the cult-inspiring estates of Gravner, Valentini, Fiorano and more, all rounded out with antipasti before and dolce after. Knowledgeable IWM sommeliers will pour Barolos from Aldo Conterno and Sandrone, as well as Brunello bottles from Soldera and Poggio di Sotto, along with other beloved wines from Movia, Palari, and Antinori's Castello della Sala. It's the most wonderful time of the year--truffle season--and we invite you to celebrate it in style with IWM.
