My motto is “to inspire people to connect with wine” and I create opportunities for people to familiarize and enjoy wine.
I was fascinated by California Wine while I lived in California between 2006 and 2010 and attended various wine seminars and events to study about wine.
After coming back to Japan, I started holding casual wine seminars at restaurants and cooking classes which is designed for everyone from beginners and wine lovers to enjoy based on my goal of bringing wine into people’s lives.
