Welcome to Protea Wines Japan!

We’re a Tokyo-based wine importer specializing in South African wines. Our mission is to make a variety of high-quality and easy-drinking wines accessible to the Japanese market.

Our suppliers are passionate about wine and its production, and we are thus well-placed to make available a continuum of highly-regarded wines on a regular basis. In this age, there is ample room both for conservative and modern wine production methods to satisfy lovers of tradition as well as experimentation.


Protea Wines Japan grew out of a long-term dream to bring happiness and serve others by means of that which we are passionate about: namely wines, and sunny South Africa.

After a period of research and introspection, we built up contacts among estates and farms in the Western Cape region of South Africa, with an interest in Japan. This incredible positive energy from like-minded men and women sharing a love of wine is the engine that drives us onward to realize our dream.

Building on our dual Japanese and South African heritage, we blend our access to a personal network of passionate wine producing estates and farms, with decades-long trust earned in Japan, thereby allowing us to serve an ever-increasing variety of both conservative and modern wines for lovers of tradition as well as ecletic palates.

Our primary goal is to make these South African wines more accessible to the Japanese market, via restaurants and wine shops in the Tokyo region and elsewhere in Japan.

We are planning several extra services to be announced publicly in due course, which we hope will draw many more people into the fold of South African wine lovers.

Please stay tuned!

Wine Estates and Farms

Shortlist of estates and wine farms whose products we are bringing to the Japanese market. Please see the individual pages in the menu for each estate for details.

    1. False Bay Vineyards
      Based at Waterkloof estate, located near the Helderberg overlooking Gordon’s Bay and the Strand, and facing the Hottentot’s Holland Mountain range, a farm run on the principle of Biodynamics, ensuring healthy natural wines free of chemical additives and pesticides, the False Bay brand sources bush vine grapes from local vineyards to express the subtleties of the terroir with minimal intervention and fermented with wild yeast.
    2. Creation Wines
      Situated in the Hemel-en-Aarde valley a few kilometres inland from scenic Hermanus on the South Coast, here we have a new wine-producing area rich in micro-climates, with this estate run by an experienced European wine maker keen to make a mark in this exciting fertile landscape.
    3. Druk-My-Niet
      Based along the Paarl wine route, this estate, whose name translates as “don’t squeeze me”, has won accolades for its selection of wines, produced with the vision of making excellent wines available at exceptionally reasonable cost.
    4. Spice Route Winery
      A recent creation by the owner of the famous Fairview estate, sourced from vineyards in Darling in the Swartland, famous for Sauvignon Blanc and dryland farming. The wines we are bringing to Japan are reminiscent of the old spice trade route to Zanzibar.

      Stellenbosch is one of the seats of wine-making in the Western Cape, and the Lanzerac is one of the cornerstones, famous for its fine-dining restaurant as well as its range of excellent table wines.
