On Friday February 8th Le Comptoir de Bio-S witnessed the visit of three wine producers from Bourgogne, France, who introduced their creations to wine lovers in Shizuoka in the company of gastronomy based on local products!
Arnaud Chopin, a fourth generation producer in Nuits Saint-Georges who contributed:
Cotes de Nuits Villages Rouge 2010
Nuits Saint-Georges Les Bas de Combe 2010
Rodolphe Demougeot, who has been producing wines since the age of twenty in Beaune contributed:

Beaune Les Beaux Fougets Rouge 2009
Georges Lignier, whose family started their trade back in the 19th Century in Morey saint Denis contributed:

Gevrey Chambertin 2009
Quite a palette as you can imagine!
Arnaud, Rodolphe and Georges, ably helped by their interpreter/guide Ms. Emi Tanabe, proved the model of gastronomic ambassadors who helped so much on that night make some very lucky guests discover the marvels of Bourgogne (my home, incidentally!)!
Their wines married splendidly with the repast concocted by the chefs which proved a discovery for the French wine producers themselves!
Tartare of root vegetables, Suruga Beef and wheat and its green organic salad!
All organic vegetables are grownin Fujinomiya City by Matsuki Bio Farm whose owner Mr. Kazuhiro Matsuki/松木一浩さん organised the festivities in the company of wine importers!
Charcoal grilled winter vegetables from Bio Farm in Fujinomiya City!
The wine producers themselves confided me they were so happy enjoying truly delicious healthy food and discovering Shizuoka’s products!
Grilled venison, “Honshu Shika/本州鹿１” raised at the foot of Mount Fuji with red wine Balsamico sauce!
With more splendid organic vegetables!
A rare dessert!

A big thanks to Chef Kouji Okukumura, Mr. Kazuhiro Matsuki, Producers Arnaud Chopin, Rodolphe Demougeot, Georges Lignier and Ms. Emi Tanabe for a truly memorable night!
