-4 items of authentic plum wine-
-Washing plum fruits-
In our seasonal brewery, the end of cold brewing for Daiginjo (*2) coincides with the time for plum harvest, so we make effective use of the sake tanks that are not used in the summer to make plum wine. Since the equipment was prepared for sake brewing, we continue to make plum wine in the traditional way, making many improvements.
This year, we will be harvesting fragrant, fully ripe Nanko plums from May 31st to mid-June. Plum wine, which is harvested and aged around summer, will be shipped as a product starting next spring. All four of our authentic plum wine items use plum fruit grown in Kishu.

*1 What is authentic plum wine?
Authentic plum wine is a plum wine made using only plums, sugars, and alcohol according to the voluntary standards established by the Japan Western Sake Brewery Association (Tokyo). If acidulants, colorants, or flavorings are used, it cannot be labeled as authentic plum wine.

*2 What is Daiginjo?
This is the highest quality sake made by polishing over 50% of the raw rice and fermenting it slowly at low temperatures using excellent yeast.

■Plum wine preparation process
1. Plums in stock
