RISONARE Yatsugatake

Yatsugatake Wine Discovery Stay

At the luxurious and serene Yatsugatake area countryside resort, "Hoshino Resorts RISONARE Yatsugatake," we are offering the "Yatsugatake Wine Discovery Stay" accommodation package, allowing guests to delve into the world of wine from April 1st to May 31st, 2023.
This resort is situated on the border of Yamanashi and Nagano prefectures, which are renowned as some of Japan's premier wine production regions. Keeping this in mind, we have chosen "Wine Resort" as our concept and aim to provide guests not only with the opportunity to taste wines produced in this region but also to gain an intellectual understanding of the charm of wine. We have designed this package, "Yatsugatake Wine Discovery Stay," specifically for those who have an interest in wine but may have found it intimidating in the past. Our goal is to provide comprehensive support through this full-scale experience, allowing guests to fully immerse themselves in the world of wine for the first time.


1Dive into the world of wine and terroir with the "Wine Academy"

At the “Alps Plaza,” which offers breathtaking views of the Yatsugatake and Southern Alps mountains, and the “Yatsugatake Wine House,” where guests can sample 24 different types of Yamanashi and Nagano wines, guests will delve into the world of wine and terroir. We will offer the opportunity to compare Yamanashi’s signature grape variety, “Koshu,” from various wineries, and guests can gain insight into how terroir can affect the flavor of wine at the Alps Plaza. At the Yatsugatake Wine House, guests will have the chance to taste the diverse range of wines produced in this region. Additionally, guests will be able to smell and understand the differences between various aromas such as grass and sweet violets used to express the aroma of wine. This is an experience that deepens understanding of wine-related knowledge and personal preferences.
* Terroir refers to all of the natural environmental factors that influence a vineyard, including weather conditions (such as sunlight, temperature, and precipitation), soil (including geology and drainage), terrain, and altitude.

■Time: 4:00 PM – 5:00 PM, Location: Alps Plaza and Yatsugatake Wine House

2Experience the harmony of wine and cuisine

Savor a specially curated pairing of wine and course meals at our main dining, “OTTO SETTE,” with the “Vino e Verdura” course, which features vegetables as the main ingredient. The flavors and depth of the wine will be heightened by the pairing, allowing guests to fully experience the joy of wine and food pairing. The course includes an appetizer of ” Soleil Wines Gruppetto Blanc ” (Asahiyo Shuzo / Yamanashi city, Yamanashi prefecture), paired with wild vegetables. The fresh citrus and herbal notes of the wine highlight the natural flavor of the vegetables, while its slight bitterness provides a gentle balance. The main dish is a classic combination of steamed potatoes, fresh egg and rich grana padano cheese sauce, topped with fragrant truffle. The dish is paired with “Domaine Rubaiyat” (Marufuji Winery / Koshu city, Yamanashi prefecture) which will enhance the rich fruit flavors and nuanced aging of the wine and its smooth texture. The winemaker’s dedication and brewing methods will also be shared, providing guests with an opportunity to further deepen their knowledge about wine and the winemaking process.

3Experience luxury and elegance in the Wine Suite Maisonette, the epitome of a wine resort

Stay in the opulent and symbolic Wine Suite Maisonette of a wine resort, where you will find a wine cellar stocked with half-bottle wines from our exclusive partner winery, “Domaine Mie Ikeno”. You will also be provided with wine-pairing snacks and a tasting note to record the flavors of the wines you enjoyed during your stay. Indulge in the luxurious experience of savoring wines made from this land and reminisce about the flavors of the wines during your stay. The Wine Suite Maisonette epitomizes the essence of a wine resort and offers a true immersive experience.
The following morning, we will prepare a picnic basket for you to take with you as you enjoy breakfast. After learning about your taste and aroma preferences throughout your stay, it is recommended that you choose a wine at the Yatsugatake Wine House and savor it at your chosen location within the resort. Whether you prefer to take in the panoramic mountain views from the Alps Plaza, or relax on the terrace seats of main street “Peppermint Street,” you can bask in the atmosphere of this wine-making region and enjoy your meal at your leisure.
