Annual Wine Festival at ENOTECA

  • February 23, 2013 · 1:00 PM

Founded in 1988 with the "For all wine lovers" motto, ENOTECA has become one of the top wine importer/distributor/retailer in Japan. Great wine selection, not to mention, by taking advantage of their efficient supply chain (importing products directly from Chateau, Domaines, "Bougival" and what have you), they are also popular for providing quality wines at reasonable prices.


On February 23rd, they are going to hold the 5th Wine Anniversary at their Umeda location, and I was able to secure 20 tickets out of 100. If there are more people interested, I will talk to the owner and see what we can do.


The ticket price is 3,675yen, and, the theme being "Italy" this year, they will be offering 50 different wines from Toscana, Piemonte, Veneto, Sicilia, Puglia,, and a couple other states! And yes, you can try ALL OF THEM. (See the wine list) Also, if you want to get your hands on a really good wine (,,say from the famous GAYA or Massolino), the first 25 people can taste 15,000yen-or-so wine for an additional 500yen. This will be a great event, not only for wine enthusiasts but also for the beginners because their friendly sommeliers will answer any questions you may have. (I'm a regular, so that's been proven. >:))


They also offer some food (500~1000yen), but I highly recommend you to have lunch beforehand (especially if you are planning to drink a lot,, as, presumably, you most of Osakans are :D) I scanned the flyer and attached it here. (Sorry, only in Japanese,, but it'll be a good Katakana practice?? I'll see if I can afford the time to translate all 50 of them later..) If you have difficulty viewing the image, please go to my Flickr site.

We are meeting at the entrance of ENOTECA, located on the 2nd floor of Harbis Plaza. I may not pick you up at the station this time, but if you really need help with directions, I'll try to arrange someone else to do that. If you end up coming late, just refer my name, and they will assist you accordingly.

Hope to see you then!

-Ryuichi

Note:

The place is casual, but please understand there is a certain degree of dress code. It doesn't have to be formal at all, but jean&sneakers will not be suitable. Thanks!

    Era tutto buonissimo ! Ero divertente !
    I don't remember how many kinds I did try... Even though I don't have deep knowledge about wine, simply, delicious is delicious, as it is :)
    And as always, interesting conversation with friendly people is inspiring.
    Grazie mille, Ryuichi san, for being a caring organizer. Name tag was a very good idea.
    Ritornero' ancora !

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
