Legato Shibuya Italian Fine Wine Dinner
Jan 30, 2022 at 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm¥17,980
Learn about Wines from Italy
Italy is the world’s largest producer of wine! Italian wine has been produced for over 4,000 years, and is considered the perfect environment to grow wine, largely due to the country’s climate (which is perfect for viticulture). … So much so, that the country was called ‘Oenotria’ (it’s translation meaning ‘the land of wine’).
We will hold a special seminar featuring 6 fine Italian wines, chosen especially to match our gourmet dinner at our Upscale venue: Legato
Located on the 15th floor Legato has one of the best panoramic views of Shibuya! The atmosphere is chic, with an updated old-world interior that is offset by the breathtaking view of the Tokyo skyline from the floor-to-ceiling windows surrounding the dining and bar area.
