Ashikaga Wine Festival 2013 - 足利のココファームのワインフェスタ2013年!

Hey everyone! This past Sunday, I went to the annual Ashikaga Wine Festival in Ashikaga, Tochigi. The wine festival is held at Koko Farm Winery in Ashikaga every year. Thousands of people attend to sit in the vineyard, drink wine, eat food and socialize. It's one of my favorite events of the year. All of the wine is produced by the vineyard. The cost this year to attend is 3,000yen (or about $30). But you receive a bottle of red/white wine, or freshly made wine, a wine glass, a bottle opener, and some cheese or garlic bread. People often go in groups and share their wines. It's very crowded, especially this year because the weather was beautiful and warm for a mid-November's weekend.

Here is a video of some of the event.


There were also man people playing live music and just having fun. I was lucky enough to be sitting near a man who loved to solo with his harmonica! This guy could play!


Enjoy!
