Dante Reveals Nebraska’s Only Certified Italian Wine Professional™

Guests Invited to Sip, Smell & Taste Italy with Sommelier in 2017

Adam Weber- Sommelier, IWP - Dante OmahaDante Ristorante Pizzeria proudly announces its own Sommelier, Adam Weber, now holds the title of Italian Wine Professional™ (IWP), through the Napa Valley Wine Academy – the first and only in Nebraska. The IWP certification was established to increase the knowledge and standards of professional Italian wine representatives in the United States through an in-depth educational program focused solely on the Italian wine industry.

“Adam has more than 20 years in the culinary industry and a deep rooted passion for Italian wine,” said Nick Strawhecker, Dante Ristorante Pizzeria Owner and Chef. “Adam is committed to bringing Italian wines into even more focus to further educate our guests about Italian winemaking and regions.”

Weber is one of the only 120 wine professionals in the United States honored with the IWP designation. Italy is the largest wine producing country in the world, and the IWP certification navigates the many regions and varieties of wine exploration. Additionally, Weber is a Sommelier who is en route on the long journey to achieving the coveted Master Sommelier title.

“Italian wine is some of the most interesting, historical wine in the world and we are spearheading the Italian wine scene in Omaha,” said Adam Weber, Sommelier at Dante. “Each region of Italy has its own unique terroir, cuisine, and culture – all features that are embodied by the wine they produce. It’s a privilege to provide my wine influence to Dante guests.”
