More about today’s winery
Japan has four seasons that transition seamlessly and vividly. The sensitivity to delicate flavours and careful, robust techniques cultivated under the Japanese cultural climate have become characteristics of Japanese culture. Grace Wine aims to pick out Japan’s best and embrace it in its wines.
We select vineyards based on the amount of sunlight, diurnal temperature differences, drainage, wind flow, and other factors, and our grape growing has been devised in constant dialogue with natural conditions. Harvesting is done by hand with careful and thorough grape selection. The winery strives to bring out the full potential of the grapes nurtured in the vineyards. By weaving together years of effort, the family business has been carrying on for almost a century.
Japanese winemaking is intimately linked to local agriculture, and Japanese handicrafts are honest, thorough and solid. In 2014, Grace’s white wine Koshu opened the doors to the world, and we will continue to bring pleasure and soothe to people by promoting winemaking that expresses the best of Japan.
