Wines of Japan
– A tasting and talk about the wines of Japan hosted by Christopher Davenport-JonesDate/Time
Date(s) - Thu 19th Sep, 2019
I have organised this event with the specific intention of introducing you to something that I suspect is pretty much an unknown subject for many IWFS members.
The reputation of Japanese wine rests in its past history of making dull poorly made wines. This has changed, with a totally altered approach to wine making with quite extraordinary success, now producing wines which are on a par with some of the finest worldwide wines. At a recent tasting in London, I was introduced to the Koshu wines made from a pink grape with characteristics of Loire cross Chablis style wine, delicate and wonderful to drink. Their red wines are the equal of many of the finest Bordeaux wines.
Producing wine in Japan is fraught with many problems but the results are superb. There are many reasons for this improvement: come and learn a bit about it and a simple supper will follow.
