Savvy Event: Wine Seminar and Networking Party
Do you love wine and delicious food? Would you like to learn more about wine from one of the world's leading experts on the subject? Or maybe you'd just like to try a variety of wines from around the world while mingling with other cosmopolitan Tokyoites? If any of these things sound like you, read on for details on what promises to be one of the top wine events in the capital this autumn.
Hosted by Le Cordon Bleu in Daikanyama, this special event will begin with a wine seminar by Annette Scarfe, a member of the prestigious Institute of Masters of Wine (IMW) that has just over 300 members and only four in Asia. Annette will take participants on a journey of luxury wines from the new world, including Australia, New Zealand, Argentina and California. Learn about the history of these regions, what makes these internationally acclaimed wines unique and special, and even gain insights into current wine market trends, all while tasting some truly special fine wines. This exclusive seminar is open to only 37 participants, so book your spot now to avoid disappointment!
Following the seminar will be an afterparty on the ground floor of Le Cordon Bleu, complete with an open bar of wines featured in the seminar. There will also be a buffet of gourmet, signature foods by Le Cordon Bleu’s renowned chefs. This portion of the evening is open to 170 people, so be sure to invite even your friends who are less interested in learning about wine and more interested in drinking it!
