A real Japanese rarity! The history of wine production in Japan started already in the 19th century, today there are several wine growing areas in different Japanese regions. No wonder that there is now also Japanese Grappa!
The Shirayuri Uchida Grappa does not deny its Italian kinship, but still captivates with its own unique characteristics. A rare and exciting experience that remains long in the memory and on the tongue. This Japanese grappa is elegant and drinks with an absolute lightness. It has a mild and slightly nutty aroma. Even though wine production has existed in Japan for a long time, Japanese grape marc brandies are an absolute rarity and rarely found in the land of the rising sun. Uchida Grappa is the first grape marc brandy ever produced in Japan. It is made from the skins of the Koshu grape, which is almost unique to Japan. Although these grapes have a reddish color, they are classified as white wine varieties. The growing areas for the Koshu grape are all located in the southern part of the main island of Honshu. By the way, the bottle of Uchida Grappa, which looks like a flacon, is made in Italy.
