A WINE industry leader and a pioneering local developer will be special guests at an exclusive wine and art dinner in Niseko this Friday (Jan 22).
Richard Cohen, managing director of Vintage Cellars, will share his extensive knowledge of all things wine, as president of Hokkaido Tracks Development, Simon Robinson, delivers a history of Niseko, and shares his vision for the future.
Niseko Photography will also provide stunning visuals for the night with a display gallery of their latest works.
The evening will consist of an eight-course meal complemented with eight ‘extremely impressive Australian wines for special occasions’ that have been stored in Japan since their release from the winery.
“It will be a voyage of the development of the wine market in Japan over the past two decades, during which Richard pioneered Village Cellars, one of Japan’s leading wine wholesalers,” said Niseko Gourmet’s managing director Tess Stomski.
“Join us for this wine dinner which will celebrate both the history of Australian wine in Japan, and the future of Niseko.”
