A Sit-Down Dinner Tasting

IWM's Wine-Lover Dinner Series celebrates delicious dishes with wines that make them sing. Seafood, fish, and all that the oceans, rivers and lakes give us are perfect summertime fare. IWM invites you to join us for a special Wine-Lovers Dinner featuring seafood and fish dishes-all complemented by perfectly selected wines. Celebrating the special union of seafood and wine with courses invoking Italy's coastal regions, from its North (Friuli, Liguria and the Veneto) to its South (Campania and Abruzzo), IWM's own Chef Michael Marcelli and his in-house kitchen staff will craft a five-course dinner, while our own Will Di Nunzio and Francesco Vigorito will show you that there's more to finding the perfect pairing than merely pouring white wines. Explore your passion for aquatic food and wine while learning how to make mindful wine pairings at your own table. It's a win-win-wine dinner at IWM, and the only thing that can make it better is you!
