After 1.5 hour train ride from Sapporo (1400 JPY), then 15min by taxi (about 1300 JPY), you will see this beautiful building of Occi Gavi Winery. They make fine German style wines from own grown grapes. Owner and winemaker Mr Occi has abundant winemaking experience in Germany. He is fluent in Germany and English, so don’t hesitate to contact him!

Inside the building, they have warm wooden hall where you can have a wedding and music concert, and there is a cellar underneath.(This photo is of restaurant)

The guided tour (5000 JPY) includes delicious lunch at fine dining overseeing their vineyard. Several kinds of their recommended wines paired with each dish will be served.

Although vineyard with snow is worth seeing, VJW strongly recommend visiting there during May to August as there will be no snow!
*Please be careful there are few trains running between Otaru and Yoichi. Another option is taking JR express bus from Sapporo.
*If you missed the train, you can visit Nikka Whisky distillery next to the Yoichi station.
