Season 2022

Magical Grapes 10th Anniversary

🇺🇸 Thank you for year long wait!
The 2022 Magical Grape is in season!😊

We are very happy to receive warm messages from many people saying that they have been waiting for a year.
This year marks the 10th anniversary of our vineyard🙏🏽, which we started from scratch with the desire to bring the deliciousness of Japanese grapes to the people of the United States.

In the beginning, few people even knew that we had original Japanese grapes, but with each season, we have gained more and more fans through the market, and thanks to social networking sites, many people have come to know about us. In the past few years, we have started to sell out, and we are truly grateful for that.

Letter from Morimoto Family

🇺🇸As we announced on our Instagram the other day, we are looking forward to seeing you at the market each season, but unfortunately, the usual Morimoto family will not be at the market this year.
Due to family reasons, they are temporarily back in Japan. Everyone in the family is fine!

This is the first time in the last 10 years that we will be away from our beloved vineyards for an extended period of time, and it has been very difficult for us to decide what to do.

We were very depressed, thinking that we would have to stop selling grapes this year, that we would disappoint everyone who has been waiting for us, and that in the worst case scenario, the vines would die.

However, my good friend Nori, who has been helping me since we started the Magical Grape farm, stepped up to the plate.

At first, he was only supposed to come and water the grapes, but this year he took the lead and worked hard to grow the grapes with the help of other friends.🙏🏽

We also FaceTimed with him every day, giving him as much technical information as possible and working together to produce better grapes than last year.

The weather was also on our side, and we were able to produce more delicious grapes than usual this year.🍇💪🏽







Difference from Last year

🇺🇸We had hoped to get back to selling our grapes somehow, but that is not going to be possible.
So Nori and his friend will hel to sell on our behalf.
However, since this is the first time for our friends to sell at a farmers' market, they are not used to it.

Therefore, the operation will be a little different from last year.

1) Please be generous.

What is usually done by a family of four will be done by two staff members.
We may have to wait in line longer than usual, but please be patient.
If our friends give up, there will be no way to sell.

We will try to bring as much as we can fit in the car this year, but please forgive us if we run out.

Don't forget your hats and water!🌞💧

2) No online reservations this year.

Basically, we will only be selling in-store.
Since it inevitably takes a lot of manpower and time to prepare the pre-orders, we will not be able to do so this year.

(Updated 8/9)

We have stopped taking bulk orders online.

Please purchase at the market.

If you are from out of state or want more than 10 bunches, please contact us by DM.








(Updated 8/9) オンラインでのバルクオーダーは、中止いたしました。



Price of goods and Grapes

🇺🇸As you all know, the inflation of prices this year has been tremendous, and it has been difficult for us farmers.

Our grapes are grown in the Japanese way, with each bunch being carefully handled to ensure the best taste.
We want to deliver our products as reasonably priced as possible, but we just can't afford to produce them cheaply.

In order to reward our friends who work so hard to help us and to continue to produce delicious grapes, we are going to raise the price of our grapes at the market a little bit.
(Even so, the price is almost the same as the price sold in Japan.)

We will do our best to continue to deliver delicious grapes, so please understand. Magical grapes are made by everyone😊🙏🏽🤙🏾

Please enjoy our Magical Grapes!🍇






The Grape makes you smile.

Our signature "Shinano Smile" Grapes has very sweet and complex taste, with a lot of fragrance like wine.

Grown from Scratch!
