Capcom head opens winery in Napa Valley


When I think of Capcom, I think of the Blue Bomber bombing or Sagat kneeing someone in the crotch. Not wine. But there's now a connection.

Capcom's chairman, Kenzo Tsujimoto, is even more of a pimp with his new wine cave at Kenzo Estate in Napa, California. He just opened his winery in Napa, and is out to Hadoken the competition with his own brand. His flagship wine is Rindo, a red blend that goes for about $75 a bottle. Tsujimoto says that his $75 wines compete with wines costing hundreds more a bottle.

Foodies will appreciate that he is teaming up with master chef Thomas Keller to put together a tasting menu when his tasting room opens up in May. Again, this guy is a badass!

Tsujimoto became interested in fine wine when he tried some at a Hawaii restaurant some years ago. He made a vintage and Japan bought it all up.

After making games for so long, Tsujimoto can get some fresh air. He says "I was looking for something outdoors. It just so happened that this is a great place to produce wine."

Don't count on any Resident Evil-themed blends, or the Ken Masters Chardonnay I mocked up above, though. "Kenzo" is the name he's going with.
