A natural wine bar where you can stop by while taking a walk in Sanjo has opened [éperon]

A renovated house on Niomon Street, located a little east of the Kamogawa River, has been watching over people passing by for over 100 years. A natural wine bar has opened where you can spend a wonderful time both during the day when the gentle sunlight shines on the table and at night when the romantic shadow falls.


Owner Yuki Matsuura. After working as a sommelier at a French restaurant in Gion for eight years, he opened a bar specializing in natural wine. Hobbies: painting picture frames

“I think it was about 15 years ago that I first encountered natural wine. I wondered if there was such a delicate and fresh wine in the world. Mr. Matsuura, the owner of the shop.

The unique natural wines, which are made while paying respect to the natural environment and the people who drink them, are mainly made in France and start at 900 yen per glass. The business style of opening at 15:00 and last orders at 22:00 is healthy and welcomes people from all walks of life.

"The French word apron means 'spur' or 'a trigger for power.' I would be happy if that happens,” Matsuura says. In the near future, he would like to try creating course dishes that go well with wine. I would like to keep an eye out for the future of this shop owner who loves natural wine and wine lovers.
