I first met Masamitsu back in 2017 when he was working with the infamous Kazu ex Grape Republic. After a number of years working as head winemaker at Grape Republic, Mitsu seeked out his own vineyard, renting a Delaware farm in Kubote, Kaminoyama City in Yamagata in 2019, cultivating and brewing wine in the Spring of 2020.
Kaminoyama City in Yamagata Prefecture has little rainfall during the growing season, and relatively little snowfall. With the ageing population and idle land increasing in the area, Mitsu was aware of uncertainty for future grape production in the area. He started the vineyard with the design to create something special and inspire future generations to continue the tradition in the area.
Since then he’s planted grapes that are most suitable to the area with high disease resistence including Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Franc and Syrah. The first brewing from these saplings is scheduled for 2023 with wine 2024.
