Lumiere

“A traditional boutique winery with awe and respect for nature” We are one of the oldest family-owned winery in Japan, since 1885, and maintain a tradition of sparing no effort to produce the highest quality wines. From fermentation to aging, our wines are sensitively processed through the gravity flow system in the natural terrains. Our boutique winery is promoting a wine-loving culture by French-style dining with locally-produced food and leisurely tastings and shopping.
