VINOZA is a shop where you can find European wines and accessories, with two stores in Taipei. Opened in 2014, their selection of wines is imported from Italy, France, Spain and Portugal. Their newest store is in the Zhongshan District, while the first one is in the Daan District, very close to Savour Cafe or Truffles Living.
The adorable turquoise front of the building is very chic, reminding us of European houses designs. Besides the name in big letters in the front of the store, a big and round sign helps us locate it from the near streets.
Besides the shop, they also organise wine tasting events and other activities in the attached multipurpose room. The wine tasting event that I attended was about Portuguese wines. Despite being in Chinese, Ann, the sommelier, made very easy to understand and follow her explanations.
In this Portugal Wine experience, we tried 6 different wines, each more delicious than the last. To enjoy even more the tasting, they provided some bread, cheese and green olives stuffed with anchovy (from Spain), served in wood boards. Excellent tapas to relish the wines!
After the class, you get a cute bag with a wine tasting glass and a wine tasting journal, to keep track of all the wines you try and your opinion and thoughts about them. Isn’t this a great idea? Can’t wait for the next wine tasting!
