Experience Details
When it comes to different types of alcohol in Japan, wine is not always the first that comes to mind. When the country is known for producing world-class whiskys and sake, Japanese wine often falls by the wayside. On the contrary, however, wine in Japan can be held to extremely high standards, despite often being overlooked. If you are visiting Fukuoka, you can taste a range of 3 Japanese wines during this Japanese Wine Tasting Experience. This is a specialty tasting which is held at a semi-private bar in the Yakuin area of Fukuoka. This experience offers the perfect opportunity to learn more about Japanese wine as you sip different styles and learn about Japanese terroir along the way. Beautifully decorated with traditional Japanese decors, the bar where this wine tasting is held has a warm and welcoming atmosphere. You can enjoy the wonderful surroundings as the friendly English-speaking bar staff introduce the different types of Japanese wine available. Feel free to ask these expert sommeliers any questions you may have about the wineries and vineyards of Japan. To add to the immersive experience, the lovely staff members at the venue are dressed in traditional Japanese kimonos. You will also be able to eat some traditional Japanese drinking snacks known as “otsumami” while you taste the different types of wine. Enjoy cheese that’s made in Japan, seasonal fruits, duck braised in red wine, and other dishes! Your instructors will teach you about the history, ingredients, and production processes used to make a range of Japanese wines throughout the tasting experience. As you try different high-quality samples, they will field your questions about Japanese wines. You can learn about the geographical differences and popular wine trends in Japan.
