My goal is to make great wine for people to savour.



KIMURA CELLARS was established by a Japanese winemaker Shigehisa Kimura (nicknamed Shige), in Marlborough in 2009.
He has been driven by pure passioon and desire to produce premium wine since them.

Our story

Shige started to go to wine appreciation courses when he worked for a top hotel in Tokyo. He was quickly absorbed by wines and became a qualified sommelier. A trip to France to see some vineyards and wineries inspired his winemaking venture to train as a winemaker in New Zealand. He decided to move to New Zealand to strudy winemaking in 2004. Shige finally fulfilled his dream of making his own wine in 2009.
