Nagano Prefecture is famed for its many large and small wineries, ranging from pioneers to new entrants, and Nagano wines are attracting attention abroad and winning international competitions. Eating locally produced food and drinking local wine is one of the true luxuries of any journey. During Shinshu Wine Week, an event organized by sommeliers four times a year, the hotel’s Italian restaurant, La Lumière Claire, hosts salon tastings, and our French restaurant, Le Grand Lys, offers a pairing menu with wines carefully selected to match each dish. Shinshu Wine Week is an opportunity to taste famous wines that are normally hard to come by, and adds a gourmet dimension to the campaign for local production and consumption of food in Shinshu.



Schedule: Four times yearly (March, June, September, December)
* Exact dates will be announced in NEWS.
