Fukuoka is a sister city of Bordeaux. From this relationship, the “Fukuoka Bordeaux Wine Festival” was held at the Fureai square in front of the Fukuoka city office and other places in October of 2017 and 2018.
Because of the typhoon in 2018, it was started three days later than the date scheduled, but it was crowded with a lot of people.
We enjoyed tasting of various wines recommended not only Bordeaux wines but ones from some other places as well at the tent of Pieroth Japan. Besides, we ordered few bottles selected from tasted.
I love to enjoy wines in festivals like this. I hope it will be held again next year…
