Know More:

Founded by descendants of Kanto samurai, the founding family eventually settled in present day Hyogo over 300 years ago under the Yamana family name. Releasing sake under the brands Chitose and Manzai, the modern name for this brewery's brand is Okutanba. Still, some releases are still bottled under the original labels. 

To this day, the family celebrates sustainable, organic and biodynamic farming process developed over these generations.

Yamana Shuzo carefully selects rice originating from local farmers in Hyogo Prefecture; they refine the rice according to the individuality of each price type. They insist on using the traditional wooden tubs for fermentation and their skilled Tanba Sake brewers carefully brew it by hand.

Fully biodynamic, Nojoho is brewed with a traditional Kimoto method that does not contain lactic acid bacteria. This is a miracle sake that evokes an ancient flavor. A product born to fully express the nature of Tamba, Hyogo Prefecture this challenging brew is made from locally grown organic Nojoho brewed in a traditional Kimoto with no lactic acid additives.

It has a refreshing aroma of peaches with a smooth texture and a rich sweetness that spreads. In classic Hyogo fashion, it disappears with a refined, slight bitterness and astringency derived from the wooden barrel fermentation.

Nojoho is gaining popularity as a high-quality rice on a par with Yamada Nishiki, but it disappeared in the 1960s due to the difficulty of growing it before finally being revived 40 years later in 2001.
