About the maker
Former chef student, Yutaka Nakajima fell in love natural wine and after experience in the Loire and Baden (Germany) in 2011 he planted his vineyard in Tomi with the winery following in 2014.
Yutaka's vineyards are beautifully situated on a south-facing hillside, at altitude. The first plantings were Chenin Blanc, Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. His more recent plantings are Pinot Gris, and has recently attempted to plant some Savagnin, Ploussard and Trousseau on new land that he has acquired. Winemaking is all natural: there are no sulfites added until bottling when there is a small addition if necessary. As with all Japanese wines these wines are extremely limited, allocations are small. .See the Domaine Nakajima collection here
