Japan 2017:  Joint Oregon and Washington Tastings in Tokyo and Osaka

Join the Oregon Wine Board and Washington State Wine Commission for joint tastings in Tokyo and Osaka. This is a great opportunity for wineries looking for representation in Japan to pour their wines for the trade and get exposure to the market.

The tastings will be made up of mostly Japanese importers that represent Oregon and Washington wines. If you already have representation in Japan you will need to work through your importer to arrange a presence at the importer’s booth. Please do not register here but through the event organizer Todd Stevens. However, if you are looking for representation in Japan you are invited to attend in person as there are some booths available for that purpose. Participating will allow you not only to speak with and identify potential importers and distributors but also to understand better how Oregon wines are perceived in the market. The cost is $500 for a half booth and $735 for a full booth which includes both the Tokyo and Osaka events. The registration deadline is October 31, 2015 and space is limited, so register now. You can see below for more details. Please contact Margaret if you have any questions.
