Quality Wine of Yamanashi Japan
Grace Winery, (company name “Chuo Budoshu” in Japanese) was established in 1923 in Katsunuma, the birthplace of Japan’s wine industry and today the wine hub of Japan. Our Koshu grapes, the signature grape variety of Japan, are grown along the mountainous area of the region, which bring to us wines with more concentration and minerality. Koshu, first cultivated more than 1,000 years ago in the Caucasus Region in Asia Minor, came to Japan together with Buddhism via the Silk Road through China. It localised itself and became native to Japan. When winemaking started in Japan in 1874, it quickly became not only the main, but also the most important variety.
A top rated producer of Japanese table wine and Grace Koshu is also referred to as a representative wine of Japan in the 5th edition of the “The World Atlas of Wine” co-authored by the veritable Hugh Johnson OBE and Jancis Robinson OBE, MW.
