Nobori-cho, Yoichi is a town in Hokkaido facing the Japan Sea and surrounded by mountains. This land of cool climate ― it begins to snow here as early as November ― is home to Camel Farm Winery.
Having released its first vintage wine in 2018, this young winery has been making its name among wine connoisseurs across the world for its efforts to create wines that deserve world recognition.
Camel Farm Winery achieved a great milestone this year, with its debut wine Pinot Noir Private Reserve 2018 winning a Silver medal at the prestigious Decanter World Wine Awards 2020, a long-running international wine competition organized by the British wine magazine Decanter.
The uniquely deep ruby-colored Pinot Noir is an intricate combination of bursting berry flavors and a smoky aroma of the barrel that resembles vanilla and coffee. Its elegant aftertaste reminds us of the terroir of the wine: the majestic landscape of Yoichi, Hokkaido.
Pinot Noir Private Reserve 2018 marks a first step towards Camel Farm Winery’s great ambitions to introduce high-quality wines from Yoichi to the world. Made with a relentless pursuit of quality that Japan is known for, it is recommended for all wine lovers across the world.
