Kokoromi Gakuen is a rehabilitation center for handicapped people which was founded in 1969. In 1958, the people living there started cultivating vines.
They worked very hard to clear the mountain step by step without machines and cultivated about 600 young vine plants. After many years, the plants grew and now every autumn, vine trees give off the scent of wine. Cocoromi gakuen school’s winery is located in a small valley in the northern part of Ashikaga. You can buy and sample the wine there
The Harvest Festival is held on the third Sunday of November Every year concerts featuring special guests are held. Visitors can sample wine and vine juice.
