And yep, we’re just a little excited.

We are thrilled to announce we’re heading to Japan for the first time!  With our first successful event run in Singapore in November 2017, it is all part of  our continued presence in the region over the next few years.

So lock MAY 27th in your diaries folks, we’re going to TOKYO!

Pinot Palooza can legitimately lay claim to being the largest touring Pinot Noir festival on the planet and we can’t wait to share the vinous love in Japan for the first time.

HERE is your EVENT PROSPECTUS containing further information about the event.

We can’t wait for you to join us!


Because it is the biggest wine drinker Pinot Noir event in the Southern Hemisphere (and soon to be the world!). Because it gives you access to a new, highly engaged wine audience who are keen and motivated to get to know you and buy your product.

This is not only a great opportunity to get your brand in front a fresh audience of wine drinkers, but also a chance to sign people up to your mailing list, build direct customer relationships and make sales both during the event and, most importantly, post. And did we mention it’s fun?

Less talk & Sign Me Up!


Welcome to Tokyo …

As our second venture outside of Australia and NZ, Tokyo is an incredible city to host Pinot Palooza. The wine market there is one one of the most exciting and growing in the world.

Wine consumption has consistently risen over a number of years 30% the time is now to be in the market promoting your brand.

As with all new cities, the event will be smaller in comparison to more established markets, yet we know it will grow incredibly quickly over the next few years. With the plan to do more and more events in Tokyo, our audience will continue to grow and grow which will further add value to your participation.

We see the ‘fun first, facts second’ approach to wine as a global trend and know Tokyo will embrace it.

TOKYO 2017

TABLOID, 2 Chome-6-24 Kaigan, Minato

Finding a perfect venue for our first outing was a challenge but we believe we’ve found our home. An excellent event space, close to public transport (and not in a hotel or conference centre), it has a character that is very Pinot Palooza.

MAY 27th

12pm till 5pm

550 +


In short, people who love wine! Below is a little snapshot of the REVEL audience across Australia, New Zealand and Singapore.

Prior to the event, we will share with you key demographic data to better help you prepare on the day. These insights are invaluable in making the most out of the event and further engage with a new wine audience.

I don’t think the UK has a single consumer wine event that comes close to what Bottle Shop Concepts are doing.


We would be lying if we said that we don’t dream of festivals like this almost daily so boy, are we excited!


'Imagine a wine event that’s … fun. You don’t have a pencil in your hand. You’re not racking your brain for clever things to say on brightness or salinity. You can just say, “Yum".


Everyone’s favourite grape dedicated festival, Pinot Palooza is back and boy are we excited


Wine Tastings Are Boring, Wine Parties Are the Future



There is no doubt those who join us love wine. What’s even better is that they are dead keen to get to know you, get on your mailing list and buy!


Pinot Palooza is not just about on the day sales. The true value is in the relationships built post event where you follow up with those who signed up to your database, follow you on the socials and more. Brand recognition and loyalty leads long terms potential sales increasing the value of that initial email lead.

Below are some more insights into the REVEL audience of 2016 in Australia, NZ and Singapore as an example.

Our event philosophy is simple: make it engaging and focus on fun rather than facts.

Anchored in HOSPITALITY, we are not about baume/PH levels, trellising systems and winemaking process. Our attendees want you to tell them a story; the story of who you are, why you’re there, and what style your wine is. People connect to people after all. If they want more information, let them ask.

Engage with attendees in a way that they’ll remember you – don’t bamboozle people with wine making jargon or you’ll get a yellow card!

‘People want to learn about wine the same way in which they consume it; socially’ – Dan Sims



(¥ 4,500 Early Bird)
General admission tickets allow access from 1pm till 6pm, an epic Plumm Vintage REDa Wine Glass (valued at ¥3,000) and all wine tastes.

We hate tokens as we believe it turns what should be an ‘interaction’ into a ‘transaction’. By eliminating tokens and making all wine tastes included, it allows you to spend your time telling your story.


You can’t live on Pinot alone. Heck, we’ve tried. Having great food is vital at events and what people demand and we’ll be looking to tap into the local legends to help us on the day.

And of course, we all need a cleansing ale every now and then (we’re looking at you, winemakers!) so we’ll make sure we have beer and cider on hand to refresh the palate.


Got an idea or a special promotion you’d like to do on the day? Then be sure to tell us so we can plug you in the lead up. We know those wineries who promote themselves in the lead up are the ones sought after on the day.



With five years’ event experience under our belt, REVEL has been instrumental in engaging a new wine audience. Our brand awareness, combined with our forever growing database, a strong PR push and social commerce strategy, we’re positive the inaugural Tokyo event will be a sell out.

Adapting to the local market is critical which is why we’ll appoint a local PR agency in Tokyo. We’re more than confident they’ll create the buzz required for a SOLD OUT event.

But as always, we want to talk about you, why you do what you do and why so your input is critical. Which is why we’ll put together a detailed Social Media Cheat Sheet which will have various images (in various size formats), suggested copy and other marketing collateral to help you further spread the vinous word. We know you’re time poor so we’re here to make it easy.

Below are some insights into our marketing reach from all our events last year.

The ‘PEOPLE’S CHOICE’ prize become a highly contested prize at our events and are a great way to further leverage your brand post event.

On the day, we ask guests to vote for their favourite producer and announce the winners towards the end of the event. So, if someone says ‘I really love your wine’, remind them to vote for you in the People’s Choice. iPads will be roaming throughout the day as well as stations at registration.
