During the meals throughout the weekend, IPNC Sommelier Ambassadors and Maîtres d’Hôtel will share a selection of current and IPNC library wines with you.  While there is always plenty of wine, there are usually no more than 12 bottles of any single wine. Those wines, which are small in quantity and high in demand, will be circulated among the tables by the Maîtres d’Hôtel, so that as many people as possible will have the chance to taste each wine. These individuals are distinguished sommeliers and wine directors who donate their time to ensure our guests experience the finest service. Our thanks to them for their outstanding efforts on behalf of this event.
