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.

A Sit-Down Tasting

Of all its 20 winemaking regions, two Italian regions reign supreme--Toscana and Piemonte. The homes of Chianti Classico and Super Tuscans on one side, and Barbaresco, Barbera and Super-Piemontese blends on the other, Toscana and Piemonte make a lot of wines to love, but this tasting focuses on just two: Toscana's Brunello and Piemonte's Barolo. IWM invites you as we explore Brunello di Montalcino and Barolo--and Sangiovese Grosso and Nebbiolo, the grapes that made these two Italian wines famous. Accompanied by regional meats and cheeses and guided by a knowledgeable IWM sommelier, this tasting will provide insight into the winemaking styles, sub-regions, and traditions that make Brunello and Barolo so beloved. Drawing on wines from both traditional and modernist producers, this tasting will give foundational knowledge to new enthusiasts, and it will add a gloss of sophistication to experienced wine-lovers. Delicious and educational, this tasting puts Brunello and Barolo in the spotlight!
