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!
