RISONARE Yatsugatake, a wine resort that is surrounded by an abundance of nature, will offer an aperitif service for a relaxing summer evening with a glass of sparkling wine. 10 different carefully-selected varieties of sparkling wine from Yamanashi and Nagano Prefectures will be available to enjoy in the open spaces of the Yatsugatake Mountains and the Southern Alps, where summer breezes blow through. One of the sparkling wines is a crisp and refreshing original sparkling wine specially made by RISONARE Yatsugatake for summer evenings. In addition, granita, a frozen dessert, made with seasonal summer blueberries will be served together with sparkling wine. Enjoy an evening relaxing on the sofa, swinging on the hammock, and forget all about the summer heat with a glass of sparkling wine.

Background
RISONARE Yatsugatake is located near the prefectural borders of Yamanashi and Nagano, two of Japan’s most prominent wine production areas, and its concept is a wine resort. With the aim to become a resort where wine can be enjoyed throughout the stay, guests can not only sample the wines produced in the area but can also join to discover more about the winery and learn about food pairings. As a wine resort, we aim to propose different ways to enjoy seasonal wine and for this year’s summer experience, chilled sparkling wine was the main focus of this program.

Characteristic 1) Feeling the cool breeze and gazing into the mountain views with a glass of sparkling wine
10 carefully selected sparkling wines from Yamanashi and Nagano Prefectures are offered and can be enjoyed in our open space with views of the Southern Alps and Yatsugatake Mountains behind. Relax and enjoy sparkling wine while relaxing on a sofa or swaying in a hammock on the terrace where the cool breeze blows through.

Characteristic 2) New original sparkling wine made by RISONARE Yatsugatake
Tramonto, a new original sparkling wine made by RISONARE Yatsugatake in cooperation with Cantina Hiro, has been added to the list. The name Tramonto, which means evening in Italian, was chosen in the hopes that our guests can relax in the cool summer breeze while gazing at the mountains with a glass of this wine. The wine is made from Koshu grapes and has a refreshing taste with a well-balanced natural sweetness and sourness. The design of the wine label represents the evening view from our terrace. Have a taste of wine that can only be enjoyed at our resort, perfect for the summer.

Characteristic 3) Blueberry frozen dessert to enjoy with sparkling wine
Granita is a frozen dessert with a characteristic crunchy texture. At RISONARE Yatsugatake, yogurt espuma (foam) is topped with blueberry granita and sweet white wine granita finished with fresh strawberries and mint. Served with dry ice, the fog raises up, providing a particularly chilly appearance. When paired with a fruity-flavored sparkling wine, the tartness from the granita, blueberry, and strawberry leads to a refreshing taste experience.
