japanese Wine history
Did you know Japan produce wine?
From the north, Hokkaido, to the south, Miyazaki, Japan started producing wine around Meiji era (1868-1912).
One of the notable wine areas is Katsunuma area in Yamanashi prefecture. The wine produced in the area is called Koshu(old name for Yamanashi) wine. This is where the wine production started in Meiji time.
When the wine introduced to Japan, the wine's unique tastes - sour and dry - was not widely accepted so the people that time put honey, sugar or so to make it sweet and drink. The famous sweet wine was one called Akadama from Suntory.
Above is the 6 bottle set of different type of wine from Yamanashi prefecture.
