Chateau Sakaori was founded in 1991 on a high ground from where the entirety of Kofu can be seen. It makes use of equipment brought in from many countries and a network of global manufacturers in order to produce world-class Japanese wine.
Its “Tsuki no Shiro” series includes 5 different brands, all of them known for making wine that is easy to drink. The “Sakaori Monogatari”, made with local grapes, and the “Koshu Dry”, which was presented during the Ise-Shima Summit, are also much sought after.
During the free winery tour, it is possible to witness the wine making process, from the production facilities to the underground cellar.
We also have a tasting section available. Gazing upon the far southern alps while tasting our wine is a superb experience.
All sorts of Sakaori original products are sold within the shop.
