  • If I gave you a free bottle of Japanese wine....

    ..would you drink it?
    What is up with that stuff and why?

    It is ridiculous. Japanese people love wine...they have all sorts of areas where they could grow all sorts of it and yet
    they make the WORST wine.
    Go down to the supermarket and about 5% of the wine for sale will be Japanese and it will all be cheap with nasty packaging.

    It's like all the producers read a brochure about 30 years ago that said "Asian consumers tend to enjoy sweet and fruity wines"
    and stuck to doing that.

    Look at what the heavily stocked wines are. Mostly dry.

    The French don't do a great line in sake either to be sure but that's because there's no demand. I bet if there was they'd step right up.

    The average Japanese drinks much more wine each year than the average yank and yet American wines are so, so much better. (Hell, it's not that hard)
    Why?
    Where'd those nice countryside living folk go? Why aren't they churning out $100 bottles of plonk?

    It can be good for making wine coolers or sangria.

      That is true I am sure. Or as a tipple for elderly aunts or young ladies.

        I've had some very nice wines from Yamanashi.

          The ____agi no kagi (no, not the elderly aunts--keep that locked up tight).

            That is the exact region I have in mind when I am thinking of bad Japanese wine. Please drink all you can of it.
