Following a revelatory and acclaimed tasting in February 2018, JFOODO is presenting an expanded selection of Japanese wines to the UK trade as part of a sustained programme of market support into 2019.

The tasting will include wines which are already imported into the UK as well many who are seeking UK distribution.


DESCRIPTION

For decades, Japanese wine was barely exported, and much was of basic quality, made using imported concentrate. From the early 2000s, new regulations made it easier for boutique wineries to set up, and stipulated that only Japanese grapes can make Japanese wine. In just 15 years, the quality, diversity, and export potential of Japanese wine has soared.

The UK’s love for Japanese culture, cuisine and drinks is booming, and both traditional and fusion restaurants and bars attracting acclaim, business and attention.

The walk around tasting runs from 12.30 – 16.30, with an optional introductory Masterclass from 11.30 – 12.30, hosted by Sarah Abbott MW. The Masterclass will give an overview into Japanese viticulture, winemaking and terroirs. Spaces are limited so please book early to avoid disappointment. For those who cannot make the Masterclass at 11:30, Sarah Abbott MW will be hosting a wine walk at 3pm.

This tasting is only open to bona fide members of the wine trade and press. We reserve the right to request your credentials. Please note that registration is not a guarantee of your place.
