Event Highlights

The Wine and Gourmet Japan Team together with their exclusive partner Wine Kingdom put together a comprehensive event program that attracts wine professionals from all over Japan. Exhibitors and visitors can expect a number of exciting and industry related side events.

The Wine Pairing Program

Wine Kingdom organizes the annual Wine Pairing Program at Wine and Gourmet Japan. The next edition of this well-received program, in which selected wines of our exhibitors will be explained, presented and matched to selected dishes, will once again be hosted by Wine Kingdom.

The main focus of the matching in 2016 was, how to match wines to different types of Meat. The highlight was not only on red wines, but also on how to match white or rose wines to different meats and poultries. The results were announced at the Wine Kingdom booth in multiple seminars during the course of the trade fair. 

All wines that were presented and paired in the program are represented on the exhibiting booths and could be tasted during the exhibition.

The Label Contest

For the fifth time in a row, Wine and Gourmet Japan 2017 will present the labelling contest. In this interactive contest, the visitors decide which label has the most outstanding design. The nominees will enjoy a prominent exposure of their wines at the wine kingdom booth. 

The Winners will be announced in the Wine Kingdom Magazine and enjoy free publicity to Japan’s Wine Professionals. See the winners of Wine and Gourmet Japan 2016 here
