Barolo and Burgundy are perhaps the greatest wines to come from Italy and France, respectively, and despite their national differences, these two wine regions invite comparisons. Both are responsible for highly nuanced, terroir-specific, and age-worthy wines; both are prized around the globe for their distinctive palates; and both have garnered diehard fans who define their cellars by their beloved Barolo or Burgundy bottlings. Join IWM as we take a deep dive into Barolo and Burgundy, pouring wines from both regions to celebrate the convergence of these iconic winemaking areas. This special event, led by a knowledgeable IWM sommelier and accompanied by regional meats and cheeses, will explore the magic that happens when a specific grape meets its ideal soil, microclimate, regional traditions and producers--and how the love of one great wine can lead to another. Wine is a life-long love affair, and there's always room for more in your glass!
