A Sit-Down Tasting

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, Piemonte and Toscana, 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.

A Sit-Dpwn Tasting

Campania, Abruzzo, Sicilia, Umbria, 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 big reds made from grapes like Sagrantino, Aglianico, and Primitivo, and we'll pour sea-swept, mineral-laden whites that may be refreshing, full-figured or simply surprising. 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 outstanding wines await!

A Sit-Down Dinner Tasting

Italy's white truffles, or tartufo bianco, are known as white diamonds for their delicacy, rarity, and demand. IWM invites you to join us for our annual white truffle dinner, when we'll celebrate Piemonte's white truffles with Barolo, Brunello, Franciacorta and other carefully selected wines at our highly anticipated white truffle event. Truffles flown from Piemonte will be at the centerpiece of this special event as IWM's own Chef Michael Marcelli and his in-house kitchen staff design a dazzling multi-course menu, carefully paired with fantastic wines from cult-inspiring estates, all rounded out with antipasti before and dolci after. Knowledgeable IWM sommeliers will pour Baroli and Brunelli, and with other beloved Italian wines, all while explaining the ins and outs of food pairing, regional terroir, and Italian tradition. It's the most wonderful time of the year--truffle season--and we invite you to celebrate it in style with IWM.

Participants receive:
• As a courtesy to our guests, IWM is extending a one time special discount on select wines featured at each tasting seminar valid the day of the event.
