Story4. Pleasure of wine
The relationship between grapes and this wine area is far-reaching, and due to the recent global popularity of Japanese food, Koshu wine, which is made from Koshu grapes, set in the beautiful vineyard landscape that has a particularly long history, has become highly regarded in places such as the U.S. and Europe as a wine that goes well with the flavors of raw fish as it does not accentuate the fishiness of low-iron seafood cuisine. The scenery in the Kyoto area where the vineyards spread out has been built up over time for more than 100 years.
When viewing the seasonal scenery and walking the streets, people who visit the area can feel their hearts pounding because of the strong influence of local characteristics, such as the history of grape cultivation, the great efforts and mutual hard work of predecessors, and the sight of wineries that continue to make great efforts toward producing high quality wine.
In the vineyard scenery that changes along with the seasons, there are techniques and buildings that have been handed down today along with the wine that still has a place in everyday life, and everyone who sees this can understand the fascination of the Yamanashi Prefecture Kyotoh area.
