Wines Report: Japanese Beverages

She is one of only 149 people, and one of very few women in the Americas, with the designation of master sommelier. The aptly named Emily Wines visits Worldview for the “Wines Report.” The segment lead us on global journeys, teaching us about the cultural anthropology of wine and other alcoholic beverages. In this segment, Emily takes us to Japan. These days, cocktail bars around the world are stocking Japanese alcohols and copying the Japanese bartending style. In addition to discussing the ever-popular Japanese sake, Emily shares her knowledge of Japanese beers and whiskeys, as well as wine culture. Emily is vice president of wine and beverage experience for the Chicago-area winery Cooper’s Hawk.
