Following on from our first Virtual Tasting in January, our food matching with Wines of Japan continues with a new range of wines.

We began the Wines of Japan series two years ago; since that time, the profile, diversity and availability of Japanese wine in the UK have increased, with national importers such as Boutinot, Amathus and Hallgarten importing a range of Japanese wines. Koshu, Japan’s delicate, native white grape, remains the calling card of Japanese wine, but there is more to discover from different varieties and prefectures. Japanese wine is now taken very seriously by Japanese wine consumers (a discerning bunch), and this is reflected in the dynamism and quality of contemporary Japanese wine.

This virtual tasting is open to members of the UK wine trade and media, and is by individual confirmation. Guests will be sent wine samples in advance and accompanying sushi on the morning of the tasting.

Please register your interest and we will be in touch to confirm details.



Please register your interest in attending this Virtual Tasting below. We will then contact you to confirm your place and request your address and contact number so that we can arrange delivery of the wine samples. We will also provide joining instructions for the Virtual Tasting, and answer any technical queries you may have about logging in to the Zoom platform.

We greatly appreciate all interest, and apologise if we are unable to accommodate you on this occasion. Swirl in the Cloud Virtual Tastings have limited places, so as to provide a great, engaging, group experience for all.

This event is hosted by Swirl & Market, part of Swirl Wine Group on behalf of The Japan Food Product Overseas Promotion Center (JFOODO)
