One day business trip to Nagano

May. 3

No Wine Day





May. 4

I had one day business trip to Nagano by some urgent matter.




By the way to the destination, I took two old express trains which I had often took in Tokyo before.




I had a nostalgic feel.



While I waited for the train at Nagano Station, I tried taste several Nagano Wine at the standing bar.






I also tasted Nagano Sake, too.



They were very nice.



After I came back home.





1st Obuse Winery Sogga Pere et Fils Ordinaire Sauvignon Blanc 2017

It is made from 100% Sauvignon Blanc grown in Domaine Kakutou Vineyards in Takayama Ngano.

I love this very fresh fruits aroma, very nice citrus and fine minerals.

So delicious!

I am sure again Obuse Winery is truly outstanding winery in Japan.

Recently, all of Obuse wines are difficult to find.

I looked for Obuse Wine in Nagano today but I couldn’t find.



2nd Rubaiyat Rouge Barrel Aged 2014 2,480 yen

It’s so tasty, too!

It is made from 100% Merlot grown in mainly Shiojiri Nagano.

I felt concentrated-fresh fruits, mild tannin and long after taste.

This Merlot has a very high quality and very high cost performance.

It’s very, very good Japanese red wine.


I think both of the wineries today know the global standard pricing theory.
