    Gunma Pref. Tonegunshouwamura Itoi Ohinata 6843
    This is a winery founded in 1991 at Showa village, Tone County in Gunma Prefecture. They started growing grapes in 2001, modelling the free and open style of wine making from a winery in Napa Valley, USA. There is a large range of grape varieties from Cabernet Sauvignon to Chardonnay. Wine brands such as Oze and Tanigawa, priced reasonably, and barrel aged Nobuhill-703i series have been developed. Visitors can enjoy a tour and tasting at the winery as well as barbequing on the terrace.

    入り口はちょっと分かりにくく、建物にも掲示等が無いため、一見「隠れ家」的ですが、アットホームな雰囲気のレストランです。地元の高原野菜を使ったメニューは豊富で美味しく、ボリュームもあります。もちろん、ワインを味わうことも可能です。ソフトドリンクはドリンクバーになっているため、居心地の良さに長居される方も多そうです。
