Although Japan has a long history of viticulture and grape cultivation for table consumption, domestic wine production with locally produced grapes is much more recent (late 19th century). Today, more than 200 wineries exist in Japan. The Japanese are producing wines in a range of climates and areas throughout the country, from mountains and valleys to coastal areas, with Japan generally seeing more rainfall and humidity than the major wine-producing areas of Europe. The main winemaking region, which accounts for roughly one-third of domestic production, is in Yamanashi Prefecture. Other regions include Hokkaido, Nagano, and Yamagata. Japan cultivates a wide range of grape varieties; however, most of these are for table consumption, with only a small percentage used in domestic winemaking. Though technically no grapevines are native to Japan, the Koshu white wine grape has evolved locally over the centuries, and many consider it an indigenous variety. Koshu generally boasts citrus aromas, including grapefruit and lemon, light acidity, and lower alcohol. Other varieties include Muscat Bailey A, a red grape; Merlot; Chardonnay; Cabernet; Kerner; and Sauvignon Blanc.
Japan Multi Regional
Until October 2018, there were few rules regulating labelling on Japanese wines in Japan’s quickly burgeoning wine industry. This proved confusing for many consumers, who had little information to identify what was in a given bottle of domestic wine. What’s more, some ‘Japanese’ wines comprised local grapes blended with imported grapes. These recent regulations now serve as a foundation for an appellation system that requires where grapes are grown to appear on wine labels. This, too, is not without its challenges, as many wineries don’t own their own vineyards and still source fruit from multiple regions. With these rules, however, only wines made from 100%-domestically-grown grapes can say ‘Japanese wine’ on the label. The rules have also established a new geographical indication system that restricts the use of place names to wines that consist of at least 85% of fruit from that place. Plus, if a Japanese wine wants to include the grape varietal on the label, there must be more than 85% of the varietal in that wine.

About the brand Four Fox
FOUR FOX SAKÉ
In Japanese mythology, Inari Okami is the god of Rice, Saké, Swordsmiths and Foxes. The fox spirits of Inari were entrusted to guard the Torii gates, only allowing the purest of spirits to pass. Four Fox Saké represents this purity and perfection.
COLD. FRESH. PURE.
To create the perfect drink, we started with the perfect ingredients. The purest water comes from snow. This led us to Tsunan, Niigata – an area that boasts a greater annual snowfall than Oslo or Moscow.
The highest official designation for saké is Junmai Daiginjo. Junmai represents the ultimate in purity – only water, rice and koji are used. Daiginjo signifies that at least half of every grain of rice is milled away, painstakingly removing impurities.
STANDING APART FROM THE REST.
It is time for the world to discover what Japan has known for millennia. Saké is not a drink to only be enjoyed in restaurants. It is a drink to be celebrated everywhere, in a class of its own.
The bottle is a tribute to Inari Okami The crest reveals our four foxes guarding the Torii gate with snowfall overhead and rice fields at their feet. The swords, elegantly embossed in the profile, pay homage to the ancient swordsmiths to whom Inari was god. The chrome finish, combined with the wooden cap, suggests a modern take on an ancient classic.
