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.

A Sit-Down Tasting

IWM Host: Robin Kelley O'Connor


France does it. Italy loves it. Spain has a passion for it. Rosé and sparkling wines are a universal joy, and there’s no time like the springtime to pop open bottles of Champagne, Prosecco, Cava, rosé and rosatos. Join us for this specialtasting and sample some of our very favorite Bandol rosés, Italian Rosato, and many others, all presented with complementary regional meats and cheeses. It’s an event tailor made for those who love the finer things in life--and want to celebrate them with gusto.

A Sit-Down Tasting

IWM Host: Garrett Kowalsky


Chardonnay is one of the world’s most-cultivated white grapes, and while it may have France to thank for its history and California for its celebrity, Chardonnay has a firm root in Italy. Chardonnay happily reflects the terroir in which it’s grown, and Chardonnay also gleefully responds to a variety of vinification techniques. These two points make it perfect for this event, a Chardonnay shoot-out where we pair French and Italian evocations of this emblematic grape. There are no losers at this O-K Corral--just great wine, winners and you!
