The fresh tasting “Plum Wine”, made from Shinto Village plums, is also popular. Each product can be tasted and factory tours are also available.

    伊香保に行くと、運転手さんに悪いなーと思いつつ必ず帰りに寄ってしまいます。小さなワイナリーです。榛東村名産のぶどうで作るローカルなワインは、決して高級ワインなどのスノッブな味ではないけれど、飲みやすく優しい味。試飲しながら、お土産を買うのが楽しいです。

    こちらは、有名なカリカリ梅の工場見学が出来るところです。試食もたくさんありますし、工場内は、酸っぱい匂いでとても購買意欲をそそります(笑) 甘い物から従来品まで数多く有りますので、おすすめです。駒形インターからも程近く、アクセスもしやすいです。 電車等より車での訪問をおすすめします。
