One of the renegade band of winemakers known as the "Barolo Boys," Domenico Clerico started his career as a progressive winemaker, breaking from traditional Barolo protocol to follow his muse in making terroir-driven, long-aging yet approachable Barolo wines. Clerico, who passed away in 2017, never quit changing, never ceased tinkering with his wines, and never stopped surprising his fans with his wines' ever-evolving, captivating palates. These days, the Clerico estate is helmed by his wife, Giuliana, and his protégé, Oscar Arrivabene, a talented, trained enologist. IWM invites you to our very special Domenico Clerico Winemaker Lunch, cohosted by IWM President Will Di Nunzio and Oscar Arrivabene, the estate's winemaker. Dine on handcrafted meals from IWM's own Chef Michael Marcelli, drink Clerico's world-famous wines, and learn about the past--and the future--of this groundbreaking Barolo estate!
