Osato Research Institute is situated in Ono-town in Gifu prefecture, renowned as the number one producer of rose seedlings as well as a leading growing region of FUYU-GAKI, called King of Japanese sweet persimmons. However, because of the aging and decreasing of farmers, it is afraid that more fields have been left lying fallow recently.

we started our activity of "Project ORI WINE" in 2012, aiming for bio-winemaking without using chemical fertilizers or pesticides to seek for co-existence and co-prosperity with local persimmon farmers and make a place for social activities especially for the retired and elderly people.

Vines are growing well this year, and we have been training the shoots and disbudding to provide leaves with enough air flow to avoid diseases.

Please have a look at the present vineyards and our activities.
