From the very beginning of Japanese wine making, Château Mercian has continuously taken on the challenge of introducing new cultivation methods and vinification techniques, sharing new methods with other wineries, contributing to the development of Japanese wine and raising the standard of the Japanese wine industry.
Grape cultivation is the most essential part of wine making. Both in the vineyards we manage ourselves and in partnership with our contracted growers, we revitalise grape production areas through developing people and unused land, creating jobs, giving children the opportunity to experience agriculture and providing an environment where rare plant species can make a comeback.
We do this to ensure that wine making will continue and be passed on to the next generation. Our aim is to advance in step with the people who live in our production areas.
