It's difficult to leave Cella Masumi, the tasting room and specialty shop adjacent to Miyasaka Brewing Company in Nagano Prefecture, without a bag full of treats.

The space is a seductive example of contemporary Japanese design that encourages lingering. In addition to showcasing the Masumi sake that has made the brewery famous, the shop features artisanal ceramics and drinking vessels, plus a selection of local food products.

When I visited a few months ago, I was surprised to find among the fuki (butterbur) miso from Nagano City and the candied kumquats from Chiba Prefecture, a few bottles of Frederiksdal Rancio cherry wine from Denmark.
