    Yamagata Pref. Nanyoushi Akayu 2836
    This vineyard has been operated by a long-established winery since the Taisho period. In addition to wine varieties of grapes, they cultivate a number of grape varieties for picking too. Visitors come from all around the country during grape-picking season—early August to mid-October. From grape cultivation to fermentation, the family does every step for themselves, creating a limited number of bottles of their original wine brand, which you are unlikely to find through normal distribution channels.

Yamagata Main Areas


Although often overlooked, Yamagata prefecture by no means lacks appeal: the Yamadera temple trail through the mountains, deliciously tender Yonezawa wagyu, and over 100 steaming hot springs, most notably Zao Onsen, await visitors. When winter comes, the snowcapped peaks become dotted with skiers by day and onsen-goers by night, while summer brings the celebration of juicy Yamagata cherries.
