A Sit-Down Tasting

One of IWM's most highly anticipated tasting events is our white truffle luncheon, a delicious celebration of the tartufo bianco, Alba's most sustainable delicacy! Truffles flown from Piemonte will serve as the centerpiece of this sit-down luncheon with a menu designed by IWM's own Chef Michael Marcelli and his in-house kitchen staff, and guests will enjoy dishes that make the most of truffles and fall's ephemeral fare. IWM's knowledgeable sommelier will pour fine Champagne, Barolo, Barbaresco and other great wines, explaining the role of terroir in wine and in truffles, helping to deepen guests' understandings of the interconnectivity of wine and food. Autumn brings the most wonderful time of the year--truffle season. Celebrate it in style with IWM.

A Sit-Down Dinner Tasting

Giuseppe Quintarelli was called the "Master of the Veneto," a moniker he earned by being the region's most influential producer and by crafting the region's most important, most age-worthy, and most extraordinary wines--including his estate's near-mythical Amarone. Although Giuseppe, or "Bepi," passed away in 2012 at the age of 84, his legacy lives on, both in the form of the estate that bears his name and in the wines that Bepi crafted during his lifetime. Join IWM as we explore the wonders of Quintarelli in a special five-course dinner. IWM's own Chef Michael Marcelli and his in-house kitchen staff will craft unique dishes to accompany eight Quintarelli wines, including several vintages of the estate's renowned Amarone, its legendary Amarone Riserva, and its rare dessert wine, Amabile del Cere Bandito. It will be an unforgettable evening filled with once-in-a-lifetime wines, outstanding food, terrific conversation, and wine-lovers like you.
