For all those who live in the city of Tokyo, where there are premium prices for real estate, it would be almost next to impossible to have extra space for a wine cellar. Is this supposed to mean that wine lovers can’t store their wines there? Well, the Shibuya Shinsen Wine Apartment Project in Tokyo’s downtown district Shibuya is where you should look at staying if you are an oenophile in Tokyo. This apartment is a great initiative to promote wine culture by property developer and Bordeaux Wine Bank’s Japan director, Takayuki Suzuki.
The 10-story building will be ready by September 2013, and although apartments can only be rented out, the 40-sq. Meter apartments will give you access to an underground cellar with room for 10,000 bottles. An in-house sommelier – Ishida Hiroshi, will be at your service as well, who will serve wine right in your apartment and also arrange the innumerable dinner wine parties that are bound to take place when this building is ready.
