Nagashima Saketen was founded in 1969
The second generation, Takahiro Nagashima (39 in 2007), took over the management in 1994 after 2 years spent in Bordeaux, France where he successfully graduated from the Oenology Faculty.
Takahiro Nagashima offers not only great and equal service whatever your budget, but will gracefully keep you informed on his blog or by direct e-mail upon request.
Apart of overhauling his father’s business, notably introducing credit-card payment (not always available in other shops), he has been actively promoting local products over the years through tatsing parties, breweries and cellar visits and restaurants/bars recommendations.
