A Note from Sergio
love a good party, and last Thursday night, I threw one--for the whole
IWM staff. From the men who keep the cellar humming to the financial
guys who keep the company running, everyone who works at IWM in New York
City was invited and most of them came, full of cheer. Our holiday
parties are one of the few times that I get to see the IWM family
together, making merry, drinking great wines and eating food that I
myself cook for them. It makes me feel great to see everyone enjoying
said it so often that it hardly bears repeating, but one of the things I
love most about wine is this: more than how delicious it is, more than
how its presence on the table makes food sing new melodies, and more
than how it makes me feel, wine brings people together. When people
drink wine, good wine in good company, something magical happens.
Strangers become friends. Friends grow closer. Quiet people tell
stories. Loud people listen. And everyone experiences something bigger,
better, and brighter than real life.
I'm delighted to offer you the wines we served last Thursday night at
our party, a fairly celestial collection, if I dare say so myself. I'm
also happy to announce that one wine in specific, the Grattamacco 2008
Bolgheri Superiore, has arrived at IWM, and it's delicious and ready to
ship. When I choose wines to sell at IWM, I pick wines that I enjoy,
wines that I'd be proud to serve my guests, my employees and my clients.
There's magic in those bottles, especially when you share them.
