Introducing the Story of Chanmoris Yamanashi Muscat Bailey A RED: A Japanese Treasure


In the world of captivating wines, one name shines bright – Chanmoris Yamanashi Muscat Bailey A RED. This wine comes with a truly captivating story. It finds its roots in the Muscat Bailey A grape, known for its deep pink skin and its ability to produce delicate red wines in the charming landscapes of Japan.


Travel back to the Meiji Era (1868-1912), a crucial period when European wine grapes first made their appearance in Japan. However, the harsh climate and difficult terrain posed challenges to their growth, resulting in most vines struggling to thrive.


Enter Zenbei Kawakami, rightfully dubbed the "grandfather of Japanese wine." He embarked on a journey that would transform the landscape of Japanese viticulture. The Iwanohara Vineyard, nestled in the snowy expanses of Niigata Prefecture's Takada town, became his canvas. But his initial efforts faced disappointment as the wine grapes struggled to flourish. Despite experimenting with various cultivation methods, success remained elusive.

川上善兵卫(Zenbei Kawakami)登场了,他公认为是“日本葡萄酒之父”。他踏上了一段改变日本葡萄栽培之旅程。坐落在新泻县高田镇白雪皑皑的广阔土地上的岩原葡萄园成为了他的理想画布。但他最初的努力遭遇了挫折,因为酿酒葡萄在此地难以茁壮成长。尽管尝试了各种栽培方法,但成功仍然难以捉摸。

An illuminating realization eventually dawned on Kawakami – a revelation that shifted his focus from refining methods to enhancing the very grape variety he was working with. Guided by determination, he navigated through trials and errors until he unveiled a hybrid grape capable of thriving in Japan's challenging climate. The Muscat Bailey A variety emerged triumphant – a harmonious blend of the Bailey and Muscat Hamburg grapes.


This narrative encapsulates not just the story of a single wine but also the unyielding spirit of individuals like Zenbei Kawakami. Their ingenuity and persistence enriched Japan's viticultural landscape with a remarkable gem – Chanmoris Yamanashi Muscat Bailey A RED.
