Greece and Southern Italy are the core of Iron Gate’s wine program, merging seamlessly with a menu of Mediterranean small plates. The beverage focus has moved to smaller producers and lesser-known grapes to match guests’ increasing familiarity with these wines.
From the Sommelier: “I’m excited about showcasing the continued revival of Greek wine, in particular Xinomavro from Macedonia. This is a region that suffered due to phylloxera, wars and political upheaval but has since refocused; from the 1970s on it has been producing amazing wines that are aromatic, savory and structured. These can age beautifully and I am currently working with some producers to bring in library wines from the early 2000s to show guests just how phenomenal these wines can be.” —Oliver Meade, Iron Gate
