The Lumière winery was founded in 1855 by Tokuyoshi Furuya, the great-grandfather of the present owner, Toshihiko Tsukamoto. In the mid-1960’s, Toshihiko Tsukamoto decided to rebuild the winery using modern technology and renamed it Lumière (previously named Koshu-en).
100% Semillon. Today, the winery is run by 5th generation winemaker Shigeki Kida, who oversees Lumière winemaking operations. The winery owns 3 hectares of vines and sources grapes under contract from a further 27 hectares of vines in the Yamanashi Prefecture. Lumière spares no effort in its winemaking endeavours and has consistently wine international awards over the last 25 years.
Delicate aromas and flavours of apricot and floral perfume, followed by an intense sweetness with contrasting sour notes leading to a long, complex finish.
