A Sit-Down Dinner Tasting

Luciano Sandrone began as a cellar-man working in the historic Marchesi di Barolo estate, saving his money until he could afford to buy his first parcel of land in Cannubi Boschis in 1977 and then making his wines in his parents' garage. Forty years later, Sandrone Baroli sit among the most beloved, most revered, and most collectible Italian wines--they're treasures that speak to Sandrone's terroir and technique. Join IWM and Barbara Sandrone, Luciano's daughter and heir apparent, as we celebrate Sandrone's four decades of crafting memorable, beautiful and delicious wines with a five-course dinner created by IWM's own Chef Michael Marcelli and his in-house kitchen staff. Spanning Sandrone's sumptuous Baroli, the estate's beautiful Barbera, and its delectable Dolcetto, this special wine event will give wine-lovers special insight into one of Piemonte's great estates, as well as provide a perfect environment for appreciating Sandrone's outstanding wine. Intimate, exceptional, and elegant, this will be an experience that could only come from IWM, the world's leading authority in Italian wine!
