From the afternoon headed to Tomamu Resort in Shimukappu Village.
Struggled to escape from the city due to heavy snowfall in Sapporo from the morning and no snow removal on the road. The expressways near Sapporo and Otaru were both closed due to heavy snow. Fortunately, got on the expressway from the Oiwakecho interchange, so was able to manage to get to the destination.
On the way, bought wine and food in Shimukappu Village. It was called "Hamanasu Club", but the products and cash register system were those of "Seikomart" no matter how look at them. It is a partner store. In Honshu, TVCM at Christmas time has usually a chicken for some reason, in Hokkaido it is a sparkling wine, "Prosecco" this year.
It snowed heavily in Sapporo and Otaru on that day, but was sunny in Tomamu. It's been cloudy even in Okinawa, so happy with the blue sky after a long absence. The temperature in Hokkaido is cold everywhere, but the climate varies by region.
To Tomamu Resort's Hotaru (Firefly) Street. Their new restaurant complex.
Fireworks in the ski area.
The aim was to visit "TOMAMU Wine House", a new Hokkaido wine tasting room opened in Hotaru Street this month. A wine house where can easily enjoy favorite wines from a small amount of 30 ml, mostly from natural wines in Hokkaido.
日照時間が長く降水量が少ない夏の北海道は、ワイン生産が盛んなヨーロッパの地域と似た気候。TOMAMU Wine Houseは北海道のワインやチーズを味わえる心地よい空間がコンセプト。最近のワイナリーの北海道ワインは美味しいので、頑張って欲しい。
Hokkaido in the summer, with long daylight hours and low rainfall, has the climate similar to that of Europe, where wine production is thriving. The concept of TOMAMU Wine House is a comfortable space where can taste many Hokkaido wines and cheese. Recently, some wineries in Hokkaido brew very good wines, so hope they keep doing the best.
Can taste 16 kinds of Hokkaido wine, and since such an opportunity is rare, tried all of them.
Three best wines today. First, Chardonnay, a sparkling wine from Yoichi / Ochigabi Winery. Occigabi wine has a stable taste.
Hokkaido wines are still mixture of good and not good, but delicious wine is definitely coming out year by year. As the production volume increases and the price and quality becomes well-balanced, it should grow explosively.
After tasting Hokkaido wines, headed to the Hokkaido ramen shop "Takezo" across the street.
Shrimp miso ramen. Thick shrimp soup and straight noodles.
Ginger miso ramen. Miso soup with ginger and. Curled noodles.
Relaxed with welcome drink at the hotel. It was a really Hokkaido-like day with heavy snow, blue sky lator, Hokkaido wine, and Hokkaido ramen.
