Dear Friends:

Spring is here! If you're like me, you probably enjoyed viewing the Sakura in the park while eating and drinking with friends. It's one of those simple pleasures we all enjoy about living in Japan.
Let me tell you about a little discovery I made over the Hanami season. A discovery that surprised even someone like me who has lived in Japan nearly 25 years. The discovery was....Fiano and sushi!
I know, many of you think that nothing goes better with slices of raw fish than a nice dry beer or a bottle of sake, but imagine my pleasant surprise when I washed down my serving of tuna with this fantastic bottle of Monte Dei Cocci Fiano!
I'm a big fan of the Puglia region of Italy. Known for it's amazing seafood and fresh produce, the Pugliese know how to produce a wine that brings out the best of fish and sea urchin. I promise you, if you like wine and you like sushi, you will LOVE this Fiano.
I've discount this wine 20%, but I strongly suggest you get 4 or more bottles to get the FREE shipping. And if you order a case, I'll discount your order another 10%. This is a fantastic value for this quality of wine. Throw a bottle in the fridge for your next sushi dinner or picnic. Make the Monte Dei Cocci Fiano 2014 your 2016 Spring and Summer wine!

I may have mentioned before that I rode across the Japanese alps last month with two other friends. We met up with a Japanese TV crew and they proceeded to interview us. Our segment was cut down to only a few seconds, but hey, it was my brush with Japanese fame. I've edited the show down to 2 minutes. Our part is towards the end. Enjoy.

Yuki's Purple Ride

Yuki and her new ride

The beautiful Yuki (featured in the Nagoya Love Wheels Calendar as Miss. January) recently picked up her new ride at Circles Bike Shop. The frame is a standard Omnium track frame by Giant. The crank set is a SRAM Omnium. Shin Tanaka of Circles did the custom paint job himself. A nice two tone purple paint job with masking tape. It really changes the whole look of the bike and you can tell from Yuki's smile that she just loves it. Yuki plans to race her new bike in next month's Bang King track race at the Ishikawa Uchinada Velodrome. Good luck Purple Mama!
