The Inside Story from Italian Wine Merchants

Inside IWM, October 20-13, 2014: Travels with Wine

Posted on | October 24, 2014 | Written by IWM Staff | No Comments

imageThis week began with the original wine teaching tool–the Pythagorean Cup. Is it a trick? Is it a treat? It’s certainly ancient and interesting. Read about it here, and learn how to make your own! The week ended with something else you can make–a recipe for Osso Buco, winter’s signature dish. In between, Jessica Catelli offered a sentimental take on a wine to enjoy all year long, the 2011 La Sala Chianti Classico. And best of all, David Bertot offered a travelogue of his time in Liguria, with plenty of pictures of the Italian Riviera!

In a rare departure, all of our experts gravitated to French wines. Playing well known against the under-the-radar estates, Garrett Kowalsky offered two picks from Louis Jadot on Monday, and on Thursday, he picked a pair from Chandon de Briailles. Robin Kelley O’Connor selected two very classic Champagnes to make your celebrations bright, Louis Roederer Crystal and Billecart-Salmon Blanc des Blancs Brut NV. And David Gwo experienced a wine epiphany and chose two lovely wines from Domaine Latour to explain it.

Cheers to you and your wine, and making the very best out of whatever this fall hands you!
