By the way, until now, Chilean wine comes to mind whenever it’s "wines with good value". But recently, South African wine has been drawing in attention.
As for the most popular South African wine, we have Fish Hoek Pinotage.
A medium bodied red made with pinotage, African-born grapes which allows you to enjoy the flavors of fruitcake, plum and mocha chocolate with an elegant taste.

Well then, while we enjoy a drink, let's change pace and look at the sake.
Sake, is liquor unique to Japan. You must try them after all.
We recommend small bottles for those who want to try various brews.
In AEON Liquor at Himonya, we have prepared cute bags that can hold a small bottle "Jinkichi bag (500 yen per tax)" for you.
The Jinkichi bag is a bag used for take away sake. The famous liquor shop’s name is printed on the bag.
Well then, how should I choose sake?
Let us teach you one method today.
Please try “あらばしり”
“あらばしり” is sake extracted from the beginning. “あらばしり” sake is thin and opaque, with low alcohol content. Its taste has not solidified and is unstable with a kick to it. You can enjoy its off, yet powerful fragrance and flavour.
This easy to drink sparkling sake is popular lately.
We recommend the "Shichiken". It is fermented for the second time in the bottle just like champagne,
It is a cloudy sparkling alcohol which allows you to taste the flavour and sweetness of the rice.
They’re boxed making them the perfect souvenir for your loved ones.
Do you want something even more special? Let's introduce products that can only be obtained here!
That is sake that has been christened "Himonya".
These are wine. Medium red wines made from Japanese Black Queen grapes. They have a delicate but deep taste.
These are sake. It has a soft mouthfeel with a solid aftertaste.
