*Available all year around but each winery has different holidays
Katsunuma, the region where Japan’s first wine was made.
In Yamanashi prefecture, Katsunuma lies in the beautiful countryside north of Mount Fuji. Katsunuma area is one of the Japan’s most famous kingdoms of fruit where grapes, peaches and plums are grown. The history of grape-growing is long and it has started in about the 17th century. There are 31 wineries, large and small, in Katsunuma where 27% of Japanese wine is produced. In October when vines are laden with grapes, lots of people come to enjoy visiting wineries and grape picking.
The History of Koshu Wines
The wines crafted in Yamanashi are generally called “Koshu wines.” To put briefly what makes them so distinct, it is that they pair well with Japanese cuisine. A refreshing acidity and clean flavor is the perfect match for sushi, sashimi and tempura.
Visit Kasunuma’s wineries to enjoy wine tasting
If you would like to see Japanese winemaking for yourself, there’s nothing better than visiting one of Katsunuma’s wineries. Visitors to the winery are given a guided tour of the grape farm and wine cellar by the same staff who makes the wine; at the end of the tour, you can taste and compare various wines in their tasting room. It will be sure to be an extravagant experience where you will be able to fully enjoy some of Japan’s best domestic wines.
During this Winery Tour, we will visit two famous Wineries in Yamanashi prefecture.
The tour will end with us dropping you off at a location of your choice in Tokyo.
