Wine Seminar in a Blizzard
A terrible blizzard came to Sapporo in the morning.
A lot of train services canceled at Sapporo Station.
However my train ran on time to Iwamizawa.
I arrived at Iwamizawa in a blizzard.
I was invited to a wine seminar for wine producers and grape growers organized by Sorati-Area Gorverment as a guest speaker.
About 60 people in wine business gathered at Iwamizawa City Hall.
Mr. Bruce Gutlove from 10R Winery
Mr. Taichi Yamazaki from Yamazaki Winery
I talked about a wine market trend, the position of Sorachi-Area wine in the market, my expectation for Sorachi-Area wine future, etc.
Fortunately, my talk seemed to be welcomed by participants.
I was also interested in the seminar talked by other guest speakers, who were Doctor of Agriculture.
I was happy to join to the very impressive event today.
After the event, all express train services were canceled at Iwamizawa Station.
Then I took local trains and managed to arrive at Sapporo Airport.
I had a nice sushi dinner at the airport .
Then I took a late flight to Tokyo.
I tasted Furano Wine on the plane bought at Airport and poured it to a pet bottle.
Finally, I came back home safety.
Very good job!
