Their cellar door is small but well decorated; you can taste some wines by charge. If you would like to taste as many wines as possible, their restaurant in the centre of Ueda-city should be the option (You can also enjoy Japanese traditional building). They serve wide range of their wines with nice meals including hand-made bread. (photo below is by courtesy of Hasumi-farm)
