Comment
Noto Wine is produced in wineries in Anamizu Town from grapes growing in the town and other places in Noto. The production started in 2006, and around 100 thousand bottles of red, white and rose wine are shipped annually. The grapes are grown in the region’s red soil using oyster shell powder as fertilizer, and are sweet and mildly sour. Instead of filters, heat treatment is conducted to remove enzymes; hence, the wine is very fruity and keeps the grape’s natural aroma and taste. In 2013, the red wine made from Yama Sauvignon was awarded the gold prize in the domestic wine competition, which clearly shows its quality.
Heidee Winery, established in 2011, cultivates wine grapes in Uyama and Sendai, Monzen Town, Wajima City. 630 saplings of white wine grapes were planted in 2012, and 1300 saplings of red wine grapes and 1200 saplings of white wine grapes were planted in 2013 (total 2500). In addition, 730 saplings of red wine grapes and 1800 saplings of white wine grapes (total 2530) were planted in March 2014. Both areas have command of the sea. In 2014, wine grapes were harvested and brewed for the first time.
