A Sit-Down Tasting

While winemaking has long been considered a boy’s game, women winemakers are challenging that notion, especially in Italy. From the Antinori daughters to Cinzia Merli, from Maria Teresa Mascarello to Silvia Imperato, from Angelo Gaja’s daughter, Gaia, to Giuseppe Rinaldi’s daughter Marta, to Josko Gravner’s daughters Jana and Mateja, Italy is looking towards a new girl order in winemaking--and Italy’s not alone in this revolution. In celebration of Mother’s Day, IWM invites you to join us for a special wine tasting on Saturday, May 9 to celebrate the women who make wine. Led by IWM’s knowledgeable sommeliers and accompanied by Chef Mike Marcelli’s selection of antipasti, prepared by our in-house kitchen, this event will explore the long history of women winemakers, revel in its present, and look forward to its future. You don’t have to be a mother to enjoy it, but we’d love to meet yours!

A Sit-Down Tasting

When we think of summer, we tend to think of white wines--arresting Chardonnays, cooling Pinot Grigios, flinty Falanghinas, or textured Ribolla Giallas. But as much as we love white wines in the summer, some moments call for reds. Let IWM’s sommeliers guide you in the reds you should have on hand for summertime fun. From zesty light-bodied reds to drink with a slight chill to full-throttle big reds that will make your BBQ sing, this special event celebrates red wines that make summertime special. We’ll be pouring some of our favorite warm weather reds from Italy, France and beyond--and we’ll complement these beautiful bottles with regional meats and cheeses from IWM’s own kitchen. Some say there ain’t no cure for the summertime blues, but this event will have you calling for red, red wine!

A Sit-Down Tasting

Founded in 1497, Raventós i Blanc didn’t just make Cava; in 1872, the estate invented it. Thus it shocked the wine world when Raventós i Blanc, the standard bearer of Cava, Spain’s most important sparkling wine, chose to leave the designation in 2012, designating its wines Conca Del Riu Anoia instead. IWM is delighted to announce another in our series of our historic, educational and delicious winemaker events with Pepe Raventós, the owner-winemaker at the legendary 200-acre Raventós i Blanc estate in the heart of Penedès. Learn about the history of this forward-minded organic estate, leaders in the region, drink special vintage bottlings available nowhere else in the States, dine on stellar courses created by our in-house chef, Mike Marcelli, and share the company of Pepe Raventós, who will guide us through the afternoon’s selections of wines. Pepe will be pouring the estate’s cru sparkling wines, as well as the special vintage bottlings named after and selected by his father, Manuel Raventós, and other special surprises. Join us for a lunch more than 500 hundred years in the making, and experience the future of fine Spanish winemaking.
