Okinapa returns for Spring Extravaganza

Date Posted: 2008-02-21

It’s a bit different from the traditional wine festivals brought to Okinawa, but promises to be a spectacular April event at the Butler Officers’ Club.

Okinapa, an extraordinary wine tasting event sponsored by Marine Corps Community Services since 1997, is set as a Spring Extravaganza April 11th and 12th. Tickets are already sold out for April 11th, but organizers say there are still some available for Saturday evening, April 12th. Spring Extravaganza Okinapa will again offer wines from around the world, coupled with gourmet foods served by MCCS chefs.

Wine tasting events are an ideal way to get together with friends while learning about wines, and experimenting with new or exceptional varieties. Spring Okinawa will feature tips o on wines, how they should be served, and what wines are best paired with different cuisines. Vendors will be bringing in wines from around the globe, both for exclusive tasting and also for purchase.

Chefs have created a memorable menu going far beyond traditional fruit and cheese trays served at wine tastings, offering fresh sushi while sipping a crisp Sauvignon Blanc, or pasta with a Merlot or Pinot Noir. There will also be an array of delectable desserts including fondue, cakes and tartlets.

Tickets are on sale for $25 at the Butler Officers’ Club, the Palms on Camp Hansen, Camp Foster’s Globe & Anchor, Camp Courtney SNCO Club, and the Kinser Surfside. Okinapa is open to all SOFA ID card holders and sponsored guests, but participants must be 20years of age or older to enter. Further information is available from the Butler Officers’ Club, DSN 645-0473.
