IWM can deliver the lifestyle of Italian wine to your doorstep with our customized off-site tastings.

A Sit-Down Dinner Tasting

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!

A Walk-Around Tasting

Italy sports more than 2,000 different indigenous grapes, the most of any country in the world (though Portugal may beg to differ), and this makes for fascinating winemaking. Join us as our knowledgeable IWM sommelier leads you through a tour of some of the most emblematic, delicious, and outrageous indigenous Italian expressions. We'll be pouring wines from Italy's North to Italy's South, and many points in between, exploring grapes like Sangiovese, Nebbiolo, Aglianico--and more. Accompanied by regional meats and cheeses, this event is the most delicious education in authentic wine that you can get outside of Italy. It's Italian wine as Italians know it, and it's only available at IWM, the world's leading authority in Italian wine.
