Exquisite Koshu Wine produced by a Local Vintner

The ARUGA BRANCA wine series is made from the 100% Japanese grape varietal, Koshu. Koshu has been cultivated in the Katsunuma region, where they experience hot summers and harsh winters, for over 12 centuries. The vintner is extremely proud to produce the finest wine from such grapes. These wines have been exported to Bordeaux since 2008, were served at the G7 Ise-Shima Summit, and are being served in the first class cabin on JAL international flights.
