Developer breaks ground on a Tokyo complex designed especially for oenophiles. The underground wine cellar will hold 10,000 bottles.

Workers have broken ground on an apartment building in Tokyo designed especially for wine lovers in Tokyo, complete with an on-site sommelier, ground-floor wine bar and bistro.

It’s a luxurious concept for serious oenophiles. The 10-story building, which is scheduled to be finished in September of 2013, will house 18 units, mostly in the 40-square-meter range, according to a report by Japan Property Central.

From wine publication Decanter’s account, the new dwelling, called the Shibuya Shinsen Wine Apartment Project, will cater to every wine lover’s fantasy. In addition to a wine bar and bistro at their doorstep, the building comes with an in-house sommelier who will act as a wine concierge.
