Japanese Wine

A bunch of us recently hired a car and hit Yamanashi prefecture to check out the local grape. Japan is not renowned for its wine and maybe I should have reminded myself of that fact before wine-tasting. I tried a good 20+ wines - all were disgusting. I didn't see a single person purchase any wine throughout the tasting session.

After lunch we went grape picking. Under the local farmers guidance we chose the grapes we liked and could pick as many bunches as we liked. We then returned to the seating area where we had an hour to munch through what our pickings, any surplus would need to be purchased. Naturally we had all been a tad greedy when picking the grapes and were in a spot of bother forcing as many grapes down as possible.
