The little tasting room in the back of this well-stocked liquor store is a good place to wind up a shopping afternoon or start off an evening in Ginza or Marunouchi.
You can choose from at least ten wines by the glass, with a three-glass set priced at Y1000 and smaller tasting sizes starting at just Y200. Or you can buy a bottle from the front of the shop and drink it here; Yamazaki imports their wines directly from the wineries that produce them, and the selection includes a lot of unusual and hard-to-find wines from both Old and New World.
To accompany your wine, there are six different cheeses and other wine-friendly foods like pate, smoked duck and chicken pastrami.
