For an intimate and informative event IWM offers tastings for 2-10 people in our Vintage Room. An in-house sommelier will guide you and your guests through a customized selection of wines.
Studio del Gusto At-Home
This elegant setting can accommodate up to 120 guests for private tastings. A true enoteca, the Studio del Gusto allows you to share in the rich heritage of Italy as the wine selections unfold throughout the evening. Plan a walk-around tasting where guests can mingle during the event or opt for a formal, seated dinner.
Enoteca A Casa Tua—our way of saying "IWM brings it home”—is the guiding inspiration behind our private wine events. In other words, we bring our signature tastings to you—recreating the authentic IWM onsite experience in the context of your home environment.
IWM can deliver the lifestyle of Italian wine to your doorstep with our customized off-site tastings. We work with clients to design appropriate wine lists to serve in homes, offices, or other special event locations. In-house sommeliers present the wines while food prepared by IWM chefs is served to complement the tastings.

The obvious answer is--you! Join us and let IWM's own Michael Adler explore the terroir, traditions and grapes grown in these two emblematic regions. Sample Barolo and Brunello, Barbaresco and Chianti Classico, Super-Piemontese and Super-Tuscan wines, all accompanied by regional meats and cheeses, and come to a deeper appreciation of wines you love.

A Sit-Down Dinner Tasting

Owner-winemaker Alberto Graci is the latest of a long line of Sicilian winemakers, but as a young man, he chose to forgo his family history. In 2004, his grandfather died, and Alberto returned to Sicilia. He sold his family's lands located in the center of the island, and he bought property in Passopisciaro, on the slopes of Etna, an ancient winemaking site; here, Alberto fulfilled his winemaking destiny. Join IWM as we host winemaker Alberto Graci at our first-ever winemaker dinner featuring him and his evocative Sicilian wines. IWM's own Chef Michael Marcelli and his in-house kitchen staff will design a menu to showcase six wonderful Graci bottlings, giving Alberto and you, our guests, much to enjoy, discuss, and share. From the heart of Sicilia to the center of Union Square, this Graci winemaker dinner is a delicious lesson in Italian history, terroir, and traditions, and it could only come from IWM, the world's leading authority in Italian wine.
