So, you are a wine lover living in Japan and somehow you found this website. Well, there must be a reason for that. We don't know it but we do have a few reasons for you to stay. First of all, we are completely committed to good wine. We devote ourselves to wine and having the best value for money on the Japanese market is our number 1 goal. Also, we deliver fast. We take satisfaction guarantee very seriously. And most importantly, for us this is not just a business. We love good wines. Deeply.
We started out importing Romanian wines back in 2004. These wines turned out to be an amazing success on the Japanese market, especially in restaurants and bars. The combination of high quality, fair prices and new flavors made us grow at an incredible pace in the last 10 years. We continue to evolve while keeping the same deep passion for beautiful wines. We are 100% committed to our mission and that is to enrich the lives of wine lovers in Japan.
We concentrate mostly on Eastern European Wines. Romanian Wines are our main strength but we are slowly adding wines from the Republic of Moldova, Ukraine, Slovakia, Bulgaria and other Eastern European countries. So far we have over 300 types of wines you can choose from.
We believe that wine is a form of art; we believe that a wine maker is an artist putting his or her work not in a frame but in a bottle. Finding the art in each bottle of wine is what we do.
We believe that wine has the power to make good food better and happy people happier.
We believe that your satisfaction is our success and we will always try to enrich your wine life with amazing and enchanting flavors.
Our wine way
Our wine way is your wine way. The only way.
We deeply care about the quality of your wine life and recommending you exactly what you need is essential to us. Our store is not just a list of bottles and price tags. Our wines are not just merchandise ready to be sold. A good wine must be a perfect match with what you want. And we want you to be happy with your choice. That is why we take a deep interest in the reasons you might want to buy a wine.
How to choose
Is it for a romantic night? Is it for a celebration? Is it a gift to a special someone? Is it something you want to match with your dinner? It does not matter. We have it all. Simply browse our detailed and carefully organized wine categories, at the bottom of each page of this website. You can choose the wine that best fits the occasion, the food you want to match it with, or, if you already know what you want, simply browse our categories by type, budget, grape variety or country.
The name of our shop has latin origins and reflects our respect for wine and devotion to family. Arte means art and Sorores means sisters. Arte because we see good wines as a form of art for the soul and Sorores because the idea of this project came to life thanks to the efforts of two of the founders, Cristina and Valentina, who are also sisters.
Where to find us?
Besides this online store we are running a physical wine store, in Toyohashi City, Aichi Prefecture. You can find us in Toyohashi every day, from 11AM to 7PM. Please check our access information and working hours before visiting our shop.
We also run a temperature controlled wine warehouse with a capacity of 50.000 bottles, in Yokohama City, Kanagawa Prefecture. Our warehouse is the place we store our wines and also the place we prepare them for delivery. We keep our wines in the best possible conditions and you are welcome to come and see how a 50.000 bottle warehouse looks like. However, the warehouse is a quite busy place so please make an appointment in advance. Our staff will be happy to give you a tour.
