秋のワインテイスティング Early fall wine tasting

After a long and hot summer, fall season is finally approaching. We have decided to mark it - on a Monday public holiday - with a tasting focused on wines from Spain.

We start with a series of white wines from the rainy Galicia region on the Atlantic coast, Spain's great white wine region.

We then try a few lighter Galician reds, after which we move on to fuller reds from Spain's famed Ribera del Duero region, home to some of Spain's most powerful and expensive red wines. A few organic wines from southern France will be added along the way to break things up.

As usual, emphasis will be placed on small quality producers with wines in a hand made style. The extreme version of this being Ribera del Duero's Alto Sotillo, a tiny artisanal husband and wife team who even built their own winery by hand!

The tasting will include a broad selection of high quality items, about 15 in total. The wines offered will include both organic and conventional labels in a variety of price ranges. Subject to availability, the wines will be available for purchase on the spot, or can be shipped anywhere in Japan.

Signup is now open, wine list will be available shortly.
