The Okura Prestige Bangkok secures exclusive deal with award-winning Japanese vineyard

July 15, 2013 Lifestyle No Comments Email Email

Wines produced in Japan at the Chuo Budoshu (Grace Winery) vineyard are soon to be available in Thailand for the first time.

The Okura Prestige Bangkok Sommelier Marc Bittner has selected two outstanding labels produced by Grace Winery in Yamanashi prefecture. These wines, including the flagship Cuvée Misawa, will be presented for the first time in August at the hotel’s signature Japanese restaurant, Yamazato.

Marc believes that the quality of these wines will be much appreciated by his guests. “Grace Winery’s flagship grape is Koshu, which is also the signature varietal of Japan. The grapes are grown and cultivated in the mountainous area of Yamanashi prefecture that enjoys long periods of sunshine and relatively little precipitation. These ideal conditions produce grapes that bring greater minerality, concentration and flavour to the wines,” he said. Grace Winery award-winning winemaker Miss Ayana Misawa is scheduled to attend the exclusive launch at Yamazato on 21st and 22nd August.

Marc has also selected Grace Kayagatake, a red wine blended from Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Muscat Bailey A; Grace Koshu, a delicate wine produced entirely from the country’s indigenous signature grape that is deemed to be a perfect match for Japanese cuisine; and Grace Chardonnay.

“We are honored to be Thailand’s sole outlet for these amazing wines and we look forward to welcoming Miss Ayana to our official launch. Grace Winery has been receiving justifiable plaudits from wine connoisseurs around the world and our selection adds substance and variety to the wine list at The Okura Prestige Bangkok,” added Marc Bittner.
