Sommeliers to be—or complete wine novices, be sure to make a note in your calendar for FESTIVIN, the Natural Wine Festival held in Ebisu on 27th of November.

FESTIVIN is more then a wine tasting, with over 200 types of “natural wine”—that is wine made without the use of synthetic chemicals—available to sample. As well as more than 15 stores and restaurants offering delicious food and snacks and live music.

Luckily for parents, the festival is split in two parts, elementary and junior high school children are allowed to enter the first half and the second half is adults only.
