The mountain vineyards, which were cleared by boys in the 1950s, have never been sprayed with herbicides since they were cleared. Founded in 1980, Coco Farm Winery at the foot of the mountain started making wine in 1984. Since 2007, we have been making wine from 100% Japanese grapes, and now all of our homemade wines at Coco Farm Winery are "Japanese wines." We do not use any chemical fertilizers or herbicides in our own fields, and we mainly use natural wild yeast and wild lactic acid bacteria for fermentation in our brewery. It is important to listen carefully to the voice of the grapes, "I want to be like this wine," and make the most of its characteristics.
