Tokyo, Japan (PRWEB) March 11, 2005
Belluna Co. Ltd., JapanÂs leading mail order sales company, has announced plans to feature the award-winning sparkling wines of New MexicoÂs Gruet Winery in its upcoming spring 2005 catalogue. GruetÂs Brut Non-Vintage and Blanc de Noirs Non-Vintage were chosen for their balance and complex flavors, which complement the fresh tastes of Japanese cuisine.
Wine consumption in Japan has doubled in the last ten years, lead in part by the popularity of New World Wines. By introducing GruetÂs Brut NV and Blanc de Noirs NV, Belluna is offering its customers two samples from one of the most respected producers of American sparkling wines.
