After 1.5 hour train ride from Tokyo, then 15min by taxi (about 1800 JPY), you will reach Rue du Vin. They have small cafe space and offer tasting (charged). Their wine is straightforward expression of vintage variation, because they think wine should reflect the nature. They make wine with minimum SO2 and fining, and no filtration.

If you want to see their vineyards, they will give you the colourful map and you can walk around by yourself.

The side door of their winery is made of pupitre, which shows their supreme aim; According to the owner and winemaker Mr Koyama, “Someday, when someone wants to cerebrate something in his/her life, and if our sparkling wine is their first choice, we will be proud of ourselves.”

As they are family run, pre-reservation is required. Winery tour can be available with pre-request, but sometimes they have to decline it especially during the busy season.
