Inside IWM, September 21-24, 2015: The Romance of Wine

Posted on | September 25, 2015 | Written by IWM Staff | No Comments

640px-Romeo_and_juliet_brownWe began the week with a reflection on encountering the wines of Josko Gravner in Verona, one of the most romantic cities on earth. On Tuesday, we enjoyed Michael Adler’s enjoyment of a $17 Barbera that he shared with his amor. On Wednesday, we salivated over Stephane Menard’s delicious recipe for papardelle ai funghi porcini (for two). And we closed out the week with a brief, helpful guide on making the most of your wine tasting–we love a good tasting.

Our experts brought you wines in pairs, each duo selected with your enjoyment in mind. John Camacho Vidal opted for a pair of Bruno Giacosa beauties. Likewise, Crystal selected two wines from the same producer, but hers was Vosne-Romanée’s Domaine Lamarche. Garrett suggested you welcome fall with open arms with a pair of gorgeous sparkling wines. And Will Di Nunzio closed out the week with a history lesson in the Incisa della Rocchetta family, choosing wines from Bodega Chacra and Tenuta San Guido.

Cheers to you and your ongoing romance with wine, and thanks for letting IWM be a part of your love!
