Friends of Nagano Wine Tasting and Dinner–POSTPONED DUE TO COVID-19

We have decided to postpone this dinner event due to COVID-19. The dinner event is meant to bring together people passionate about wine. We do not believe that we can do so, and do so safely, in the current environment. We hope to be in touch soon with a new date for the event.


You are invited to a special Nagano wine tasting dinner on April 25, 2020 starting from 19:00.   The tasting and dinner are a joint project between Apero, a French restaurant located in Aoyama, Tokyo, and the Friends of Nagano Wine. The evening will bring together the best wines from Nagano with outstanding French cuisine.

The tasting will feature six select wines from Nagano Prefecture, notably the excellent Chateau Mercian Merlot 2015 and wines from a number of interesting wineries, such as ALPS, Cantina Riezo, Kusunoki and San Cousair. Guillaume Duperier and his team at Apero will prepare a variety of dishes to complement the wines.

We are sensitive to the continuing impact of the coronavirus and are limiting participation to ten guests. Please let us know of your interest in the event as soon as possible so we can reserve your seat at the table. We will ask that you reconfirm your participation on Monday, April 20, 2020. Cost is 10,000 yen per guess and payment for the event can be made on the night of the event by credit card or in cash. 

We hope that you can join us. Please RSVP to
