A Sit-Down Tasting

There is no wine that embodies the pleasure of summertime better than rosé. Like summertime's flowers and ripe produce, rosé wines bloom in a dizzying array of pale pinks, fleshy salmons, bright cherries, and cheery melons. Summertime rosés aren't meant to sit in the dark cellar--they demand to be enjoyed now. Rosés come from all corners of the wine world, and they appear in a wide variety of styles, from soft and sweet to steely and bright. Join IWM as we celebrate the optimistic, sunny side of summertime wines with this tasting dedicated to rosé. Taste beloved rosé wines from Italy and France, along with some surprise wines, all accompanied by regional meats and cheeses. Come to know this genre even better with the help of knowledgeable IWM sommeliers and make your summer blush with joy!

A Sit-Down Tasting

Italy has more than 2,000 different indigenous grapes, the most of any country in the world (though Portugal may beg to differ). One way to make sense of this number of grapes--and the extraordinary number of delicious wines made from them--is to focus on one geographical area. Let our knowledgeable IWM sommelier lead you through a tour of most emblematic, delicious, and outrageous expressions from Italy's North. We'll be pouring wines from Valpolicella, Vallee d'Aosta, Friuli and more, and our knowledgeable sommelier will guide you in understanding the panorama of northern Italy's terroir, traditions, and grapes. Accompanied by regional meats and cheeses, this sit-down tasting offers aficionados or Italian wine newbies the most delicious education in authentic wine that you can get outside of Italy. Toe to tip, IWM is where Italian wine lovers come for fine Italian wine.
