Main content starts here.

Yamanashi Mars Winery seeks to produce world-class wines while always respecting the soil and climate of Yamanashi. We devote ourselves to fermenting grapes from our land into wines starting with the signature Chateau Mars line under the theme "harmony between mellow flavor and fine bouquet."

Our wines that take full advantage of Japan's rich four seasons have won the gold prize at the Japan Wine Competition as well as acclaim abroad.

We welcome visitors to tour the factory and see the winemaking process from grape pressing to bottle filling—and to enjoy our prided wines at the free tasting corner.
