We finished the week with an origin story. Every great wine palate has a beginning, and Stephane Menard tells his. It begins with a bottle of birth-year Bordeaux and moves from there. Another IWM writer reflected on drinking Cupano’s Super-Tuscan wine, Sant’Antimo Ombrone, with the people who made it, and how that wine will always taste like friendship.

Our experts are focused this short week on bringing people and wines together. Michael Adler picks a pair of cru Barolo for your fall and winter wine enjoyment. Will Di Nunzio reflects on a recent dinner to select two knockout wines that were totally unexpected pleasures. And David Gwo set his sights on Cupano’s 2008 vintage for a pair of beautiful wines to enjoy now–or years from now.

Cheers to you and the people in your life. They make life beautiful.
