MDJ is proud to present at the 2019 "Taste of Japan" pavilion:
The Sakura Japan Women’s Wine Awards 2019 is the biggest International wine competition in Japan. This competition is judged exclusively by female wine specialists and has three aims in Japan: “to contribute in stimulating the wine market in Japan”, “to help make elections on pairing wine with Japanese cuisine” and “to increase opportunities for women to work in the wine industry”. We hope that your support will help expand the women’s role in the wine industry and help energize the wine industry.
In 2019, the awards were selected among 4,326 items from 34 countries after the tasting assessment held from Jan.29th to Jan.30th, 2019.
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.
Our Grande Polaire wine tasting seminars are scheduled as follows:
March 17, 2019: 11:00 & 14:00
March 18, 2019: 11:00 & 14:00
