The winery and vineyards are located in a valley between the mountains from north to south, and the Natori River runs through the valley next to it. The cool breeze flowing through the valley and river of Akiu blows through the ridges of the fields even during the summer. This cool breeze is a heavenly bounty that sheds moisture during the heat of the heat, cools the fruits and ripens the grapes while preserving their acidity.
In addition, soil preparation is essential for the stable production of high-quality grapes. It is the microorganisms and small animals in the soil that live there that convert the nutrients in the ground into a form that is easily absorbed by the roots of the grapes. In order to maintain their biodiversity, they minimize the use of pesticides and apply plant organic matter such as green manure.
