The Wine Room, with its genteel, subdued interior, is a select location for various workshops and tastings. Nothing detracts the eye from the wine dancing in the glass, from the crystal-clear sake. Nothing disturbs the ear, tuned to the words of the Okura's sommeliers.
Sommeliers like the master of wine Noël Vanwittenbergh, one of the Netherlands' leading wine connoisseurs. He conducts blind tastings, in darkened glasses under special light. He puts across the basics, but also gives workshops for oenologists - and everyone in between.
The Japanese national drink sake is also on offer. The Japanese sommelière Fukue Homma will guide you during diverse workshops tasting sake. She will tell you all about the origin and the rituals that are associated with drinking sake.
