IWM's Super Singles Flash Sale--180 Wines at Special Pricing!

April 26, 2018
A Note from Sergio

When I'm at home I drink for health, for simplicity, and for taste, because wine, like family, should be both a pleasure and a comfort. Nestled in the company of my beautiful wife and kids, eating dinner that we have cooked, I invariably drink something wonderfully ordinary: a really delicious, simple wine. When I'm relaxing at home, I go for a bottle that doesn't make me think too much. I want to enjoy the moment--not complicate it.

That said, I also enjoy the times when I choose to drink a serious wine, a wine that I have to commit to, me form a relationship with. I'm talking about serious wines that require me train myself to forgo my likes and dislikes, to reframe my thinking, and to respond to on its own mercurial merits. These are life-changing wines, potentially, and I approach them with the gravitas they deserve.

There are also wines that I pour when I want to commemorate a moment--sometimes I've had these wines before, so when I open that bottle and drink the wine again, it layers the experience with a bricolage of memories, of sensory responses, of feelings. I reserve that kind of involvement for holidays and special occasions.

Today's eLetter has single bottles of wine for all occasions, some serious and some simple, to buy and enjoy when you're at home, with others, or when the feeling strikes. Each one of these wines is an experience in the making--and all it's waiting for is you, the right time, and the people you love.

Enjoy!

A Sit-Down Dinner Tasting

Regular Ticket Price: $289.00/person

ONLY TWO SEATS REMAINING!

Guest Host: Giovanni Manetti, Owner, Fontodi

IWM Host: Will Di Nunzio, President

The "Chianti" designation dates to 1398, and Fontodi is one of the few estates that can trace its lineage to this historic time period. Resting near Panzano in the epicenter of Toscana's viticulture, Fontodi's vines sit in the Conca d'Oro, the natural amphitheater that is the beating heart of Chianti Classico, and these vines are home to some of Toscana's greatest wines. Join IWM and Giovanni Manetti, Fontodi's owner-winemaker, as we host a dinner that honors the legacy, the tradition and the future of Fontodi. IWM's own Chef Michael Marcelli and his in-house kitchen staff will craft a five-course dinner of Tuscan-style dishes designed to showcase a dozen or more Fontodi wines, including vintage Flaccianello and Vigna del Sorbo bottlings. Guests will enjoy fine Fontodi wines and IWM's delicious food as Sig. Manetti and Will Di Nunzio, IWM's President, offer context, history, and vintage notes in this evening of sparkling conversation and unparalleled Tuscan wines. A once-in-the-lifetime dinner event for true Italian wine-lovers, this Fontodi winemaker dinner is a must-attend experience from IWM, the world's leading authority in Italian wine!

Competitors, colleagues and co-conspirators, Italian and French winemakers have borrowed, stolen, and collaborated for hundreds of years--and this special tasting lets you experience how these two winemaking forces have influenced one another. At this special Saturday tasting, IWM's knowledgeable sommelier will match wines from Burgundy, Bordeaux and beyond with Italian Barolo, Brunello and more. We'll pair wines from some of our favorite producers and present you with an unparalleled opportunity to compare and contrast the wines of the world's two greatest winemaking countries.

When most people think of northern Italian wines, they think of Valpolicella, Amarone, Soave and not much more--but Italy's northern winemaking regions have millennia of winemaking history and an array of viticultural traditions. Join IWM as our knowledgeable sommelier leads you through a tour of emblematic, delicious, and outrageous expressions from Italy's North. We'll be pouring wines from Valpolicella, Vallee d'Aosta, Friuli and more, and we'll help you to understand the panorama of northern Italy's terroir, traditions, and grapes. Accompanied by regional meats and cheeses, this sit-down tasting offers a terrific education in authentic northern Italian wine. Toe to tip, IWM is where Italian wine lovers come to discover, appreciate, and enjoy their passion for fine Italian wine.

Saturday, May 19 | 1:00-3:00 pm | New York, NY
A Sit-Down Tasting

Regular Ticket Price: $99.00/person

IWM Host: Michael Adler

Campania, Abruzzo, Sicilia, and Puglia--the South of Italy doesn't get as much notice as Italy's North, especially when it comes to winemaking. However overshadowed by their showy northern neighbors, Italy's southern regions are where Italian winemaking began, and they're the sites of undiscovered treasures. Join us as we explore the history, traditions, producers, grapes and styles of Italy's southern winemaking regions. We'll pour wines made from grapes like Aglianico, an indigenous varietal rescued from extinction. Whites, reds and rosés all hail from Italy's South, where you can find surprisingly affordable bottles that are as finessed, age-worthy and delicious as those from the North. Accompanied by regional meats and cheeses, this tasting gives you a tour of wines off the beaten path, where things are wild and thrilling.

*Wines to be announced.
