It's not a soccer match. It's an opportunity for you to compare the wines of France and Italy side by side, the makings of an entirely delightful Saturday afternoon. At this tasting, we'll be matching French and Italian wines that are easy on the palate and gentle on the wallet! Bringing together second-tier wines at iconic estates, little-known artisanal gems, or more obscure grape varietals, this event will explore a range of reds and whites from Italy and France--and it'll give you a broad range of wines to enjoy on Tuesday pizza nights, wow your dinner guests, or have on hand for when the wine moment strikes. Led by a knowledgeable IWM sommelier and accompanied by regional meats and cheeses, this tasting is ideal for wine-lovers of all kinds, from newbies to connoisseurs!
