A Note from Sergio

Most people think that I have the most glamorous job in the world. What's better than traveling, tasting the very best wines from the most exclusive vineyards, and bringing these wines to wine-lovers like you? It's hard to argue with the pure glamour of that surface image, but the truth is that my day starts at 8:00 a.m. and often ends when I make it back to my hotel room at 1:00 a.m. In those intervening 15 hours, I might travel 200 kilometers to meet with eight different producers, tasting twenty or thirty different wines, or I might sit in a cold restaurant with a handful of other people and taste two to three hundred wines in a day. Either way, it's a lot less glamour and romance and a lot more sleepless nights than you'd expect.

When I taste these wines, whether in producers' cellars, in echoing halls, or in restaurants, I imagine you, my clients, drinking them in your own homes. It's not always about my loving the wine myself (my palate is not the ultimate judge); it's often about imagining other people's taste preferences and choosing the best possible wines to fit those parameters. I always select with quality in mind, and I always try to pick three different kinds of wines: wines to drink everyday, wines to impress, and wines for special occasions. Every wine-drinker needs all three, and in an ideal world, every wine cellar holds all three.

I rarely spread before you the fruits of my labors in one giant offer, but today I am. I'm throwing open the doors to IWM's cellar with today's list of 500 wines, showing you the wines that I've chosen for you, your glasses, your tables, and your loved ones. There are everyday Barberas and Dolcettos from Domenico Clerico, Paolo Scavino, and Aldo Conterno; Chianti Classico from Fontodi or Badia a Coltibuono; Rosso di Montalcino from Barrici or Fuligni. There are impressive wines like Quintarelli's Valpolicello, Paolo Beah's Sagratino di Montefalco, and Grattamacco's Super-Tuscan Bolgheri Rosso Superiore. And there are special occasion wines like vintage Sassicaia, Dal Forno Amarone, or Giuseppe Rinaldi Brunello. And that's just some of the Italian red wines! This list has something fro everyone, and I'm overjoyed to share these 500 different wines with you. It's my life's work, and you make me love it!

Enjoy!

IWM invites you inside our private cellar and to discover the gems that await you inside our collection of wines. You'll find 500 different wines in a range of styles, grapes, price points and age-worthiness, ensuring that every wine-lover's palate will be pleased. From Italian reds to French whites, from Lebanese Bordeaux-style blends to Patagonian Pinot Noirs, from Prosecco to Cava or Champagne, from Rioja to Burgundy, and from so-called "orange" wines to so-called Super-Piemontese wines, this list has something for everybody, whether wine connoisseur or wine newbie. For a limited time only, take a cool 8% off cases, mixed or not, on all these in-stock wines; they'll ship directly from our temperature-controlled cellar to yours. It's a rare opportunity to secure vintage Tignanello, Bartolo Mascarello Barolo and Barbera, double mags of Sassicaia, Chablis from both Christian Moreau and Domaine Barat, or six different perfectly mature Spanish wines--all in the same case! But don't wait to make your selections--this special, time-sensitive pricing is available for only until Friday, May 26, 2017, at 5:00pm!
