ABOUT THE WINE


A family owned company with the vineyard established since 2018 after getting grapes from contract growers for 10 years. Shigehisa Kimura started his wine career as a sommelier in a top hotel in Tokyo where he worked for 10 years. He was a qualified sommelier which is a highly sought after wine qualification in Japan. A trip to France to see some Vineyards and wineries bewitched him and inspired his winemaking venture. After this, Shige decided to move to New Zealand to study winemaking. Kimura Cellars is one of the smallest boutique producers in Marlborough. As a result, they can make artisanally-made wine which shows true reflection of its place with having a lot of attention to detail to grape growing and winemaking.
Sauvignon Blanc, the grape have been grown organically on our home block vineyard located in Grovetown, in the heart of Marlborough’s Wairau Valley. The soil is silty loam. The vineyard was trained using the divided Scott Henry canopy management system to enhance the quality of fruits. The grapes are machine harvested once optimal flavour and ripeness were achieved. The juice is fermented at low temperature in stainless steel tanks to retain aromatic and freshness.
