TWS will celebrate the new year with "Celebrity Wines." There are a lot of celebrity people who have their own winery. People tend to avoid these wines because we believe these big name people do not know how to make good wines, and they are considered gift or party wines. However, we found some of them are surprisingly good. It was an excellent opportunity for us to test the myth for good, and we were surprised.

Celebrity wines are;
Olivia Newton-John
(AZ Singer) Koala blue red & White
Giovanni Alesi & Kumiko Goto(F1 Driver&Actress) France Henri De Lanzac Cote Du Rhone "Grenache Syrah Morvedre"Clos de L'Hermitage
