The Pursuit Of Perfection

Free of tradition, led by originality, experimentation, and a unique climate for grape cultivation, Japanese wine was born.

Taking the traditional Japanese path towards perfection, wine-makers ventured into the competitive wine world, challenging perceptions with each step. Learning from Western wine-makers, while developing their own techniques and methods, Japanese wine has quickly grown into a strong, complex category in the wine world.
Just over a century later, the category is amassing awards on a global scale, converting wine fans the world over, and competing with wine industry goliaths.

Our team has travelled to each corner of Japan to stock our cellar with the most extraordinary wines. Following Japan’s whisky grains and exotic gin botanicals, domestic grapes are leading the new movement of Japanese wine.

Chateau Mercian Koshu Kiyoka Cuvee UENO 2016

This beautiful white wine from the award-winning Chataeu Mercian winery was created using Japan’s famous Koshu grapes, first produced in Katsunumacho. It’s a fruity, citrusy expression that brings fresh lime, grapefruit and oranges together with incense like spices. A really crisp and refreshing wine that is well worth trying.
