Sapporo Breweries - GRAND POLAIRE

It’s not too long ago that Japan appeared on the landscape of wine-producing countries. But in the last years, Japanese wines have made an impressive development and started to win prices and awards in international wine competitions. At the Decanter World Wine Awards 2018 alone, there were 68 wines from Japan awarded. Among them, four wines were from the Grande Polaire portfolio. With Grande Polaire, Sapporo aims at the highest standards: wines with rich terroir, that can only be produced in Japan.
At ProWein 2019, Sapporo presents at the “Taste of Japan” pavilion four Grande Polaire wines, each from a different grape and different location. Discover the charms of Grande Polaire wines at our seminars with the chief winemaker Masayoshi KUDO and Anthony Rose, one of Great Britain’s most famous wine journalists.
