When it comes to Japanese wine, Koshu-Katsunuma-Wine is the top Japanese brand recognized by both sides of the aisle. Not being a wine savvy person, I studied Katsunuma-Wine for a bit, and to my surprise, I found out that Katsunuma-Wine also sells a lot of wines mixed with foreign wines. No, is that so. That's why I decided to buy the Katsunuma-Wine from Katsunuma 100%.

Incidentally, wine made in Japan using 100% domestic grapes is called Japanese wine, while wine made in Japan using grapes imported from overseas or concentrated fruit juice is called domestic wine.

Just as I was thinking of putting it in the refrigerator after I bought it, I saw the following warning.  For storage, store in a cool, dark place, such as the following, and drink it after it has cooled.
White wine 6-10℃
Red wine Before and after 17°C
rosé wine 8-10℃
Ah, it's a difficult thing to do with wine. He's alive, isn't he?

Actually, I prefer white wine, but I decided to drink red wine, which is popular with everyone because it contains a lot of polyphenols. Then, I poured it into a glass and smelled the unique sour scent. Sipped a little, the taste is still sour. However, it is easy to drink and has a good composition. Wine is more like a drug than a drink (until you get used to it), but it's strange because you gradually get drunk.

In time, things will change... The more I drink, the better it tastes. The astringency, bitterness and sourness of this seems to whet the appetite. Wine is starting to seem like a different kind of drink than booze. You're drunk, aren't you?

I saw a show on TV about wine glasses. It seems that drinking wine in that tulip-shaped glass has a meaning. Apparently, the wine's aroma stays in the glass well in that shape, and the swirling (swirling) increases the aroma again. I see, so you can enjoy the aroma of wine.

I've heard that wine vines concentrate their nutrients by producing fewer berries. I heard that a certain vine in Koshu usually has 500 bunches, but they use only 20 bunches of makoto or lie. Also, I've heard that wine is fermented with natural yeast (wild yeast) that is originally attached to the grapes.

In Kofu, where I live, drinking grape wine (not wine) is the standard way to have a late night drink, and it's in a 1.8-liter bottle. However, since a 1.8-liter bottle won't fit in the refrigerator, it's likely to be divided into smaller portions such as PET bottles for cooling. And it's not in a wine glass, it's in a cup or teacup...

Also, in Yamanashi, there are many bottles of grape wine lined up in the liquor stores, so be careful. Incidentally, I heard there are 80 wineries in Yamanashi.
