Yamanashi Prefecture / Japan
Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay

The main varieties are Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay from City Farm in Hakushu-cho, Hokuto City, Yamanashi Prefecture. Grapes are grown at an altitude of 750 meters at the foot of Mt. Chigatake near the Nagano prefectural border, with a view of Mt. Yatsugatake in front. Fujimaru blends their wines based on the concept of GlouGlou = wine that you can gulp down.

Fujimaru-san’s project didn’t start out as a winery. When he founded the company in 2006, he wanted to distribute interesting local wines. It wasn't long later that he discovered that the Osaka area has a history of over 120 years of grape growing.
But with rapid urbanisation in progress, the vineyards were fast disappearing. Fujimaru-san felt the urge to preserve this important aspect of local heritage, so in 2010 he began to cultivate grapes on an abandoned farm in Kashiwara City, Osaka Prefecture. His focus was on the Delaware variety, which had been cultivated in the local area for many years. The vineyards soon grew to over 2 hectares. The resulting wines were an instant hit. He started to procure other grapes from local farmers who met his stringent requirement, the same criteria he uses on his own vineyards - no chemicals are used unless absolutely necessary.
