About the Event

This 50-minute virtual event will feature a light introductory wine discussion, hosted by wine enthusiast and YouTuber Yasuhiro “Yasu” Yamaguchi. Yasu will cover a wide range of wine topics to improve your overall knowledge and comfortability with wine. Having lived in the U.S. and Mexico for over 10 years, most of his wine expertise focuses on American and Mexican wine. His presentation will be followed by some fun quizzes and Japanese wine facts.

If you would like to sip along with Yasu, he recommends purchasing any bottle from RIDGE. RIDGE is a prestigious winery that raised the reputation of California wine to the world. RIDGE is also owned by a Japanese company (Otsuka Pharmaceutical).
