Committed to the terroir of the sake, we bring you our original labeled sake “Tachihi No Sora”. Introducing the original label design!

Just as we are committed to serving you the right crop for the right land in our food menus, we want to offer wine and sake grown in a specific terroir characterized by the soil, climate, and terrain in which the grape or rice is grown. With that in mind, we partnered with Sakunohana Shuzo, a sake brewery in Saku City, Nagano Prefecture.

Sakunohana Shuzo, which is committed to using the right crop for the right land, makes sake using its own rice as well as superb rice from contracted farmers in Nagano and underground water from the Yatsugatake Mountains drawn up from the brewery’s well.
Among the sakes, Masaki rice used in Tachihi No Sora Junmai Daiginjo is carefully cultivated by Kazuya Masaki, an experienced farmer in the Sugadaira Plateau. Starting with soil preparation, the rice is grown pesticide-free using only organic fertilizers. SORANO HOTEL staff have visited the rice fields several times to help with the planting and harvesting of rice.

Production of the three sakes bearing the original label “Tachihi No Sora” will be outsourced to Sakunohana Shuzo so that the sakes can be released in May June at the opening of the SORANO HOTEL.

The original label is based on the SORANO HOTEL logo, which symbolizes the movement of the sun, and represents the rising sun across three different labels. It is a fun design, and we hope that guests will want to arrange the bottles side by side to compare the sakes.
