Gokase Winery is located in the town of Gokase, Miyazaki prefecture, known for its beautiful sunsets. In this winery that stands on top of a nature-filled hill, you can not only taste the wine made from grapes that were grown in Gokase with the cold and warm weather at 600 meters as well as the clear water, but you can also take a tour of the wine production facilities. The facility can be enjoyed both by people who love wine and those who don't, as it also features a store that sells locally harvested fresh vegetables, Yuhi no Sato Produce Shop, and a restaurant Kumono Ueno Budo (grapes above the clouds) that serves dishes made with local ingredients.

A Winery to Enjoy Kyushu Wine
Gokase Winery was established in 2005 with a wish to "produce a wine that uses 100% locally grown grapes." Other than taking a tour of the wine production facilities, you can also taste the exquisite wine made from freshly harvested juicy grapes in the store.
Dine in the Restaurant With a Great View
In the restaurant Kumono Ueno Budo inside the winery, you can appreciate dishes made from local ingredients while sitting in the luminous room with large glass walls and overlooking the beautiful views of the great Kyushu highlands including the five mountains of Aso.
Yuhi no Sato Produce Shop
In the Yuhi no Sato Produce Shop inside the winery, freshly harvested vegetables and mountain herbs brought by the local residents and local specialty Kamairicha (roasted green tea) are sold, as well as prepared foods made by local housewives.
