GOICHI WINE | 五一ワイン – 株式会社林農園
Goichi Wine was founded by Goichi Hayashi in 1951, planting his first vine – Japanese grown Merlot that he brought back from the neighboring prefecture, Yamagata with his son who majored in agronomy at a university. They launched a vineyard with one Merlot vine in their motherland – Kikyogahara where they challenged to grow Merlot in their estate. They have practically succeeded viticulture with application of reduced chemical and organic compost, and technically conduct disease management by rain-cut covers over the vine rows and paper-cover placed one-by-one onto each grape bunch during ripening period.
