Yeongdong-gun, Chungbuk-do to engage in exchanges in the wine industry with Narasaki City, Japan

According to Yonhap News,

Yeongdong-gun, Chungbuk-do, a leading wine producing region in Korea, will engage in exchanges in the wine industry with Narasaki City, Yamanashi Prefecture, Japan.

On May 20, Yeongdong-gun said that the mayor of Narasaki City, officials of liquor companies, and winery operators will come to Korea on May 24 for a three-day tour of the wine industry.

They will visit the '13th Korea Wine Festival' held around Yeongdong stream and wine tunnels and wineries.

Earlier, the governor of Yeongdong-gun participated in the 24th Korea-China-Japan Local Government Exchange Conference held in Yamanashi Prefecture in October last year, and introduced the wine industry of the region under the title of 'Yeongdong-gun, a leader of K-Wine'.

It is said that Narasaki City, which is emerging as the center of new wine leader in Japan, has expressed hope for exchanges since then.

Yamanashi Prefecture is home to most developed wine industry in Japan, and two wineries are in operation only in Narasaki City.

Yeongdong-gun, one of the largest grape producers in Korea, is home to 35 wineries, and the wines produced here are standing out at wine competitions at home and abroad, strengthening its position as Korea's top wine producing region.
