After winning the "Bronze Award" and the "Encouragement Award" at the Japan Wine Competition, from which the winery received 12 awards this year, it is rewarded the "Silver Award" upon its first entry in Asia's largest international wine competition, "Japan WINE CHALLENGE 2016".
"Chateau Jun Koshu 2015" is the product that received the award. The wine has a deep taste, supported by its sweetness resembling the fruit and the right level of acidity.
The Kobayashi vineyard, from where the grapes used for this wine are grown, is well accepted by our customers as the representative vineyard of Chateau Jun.

Since its founding in 1958, Jun Co., Ltd. has always been disseminating culture in a variety of lifestyle support businesses, such as cafes, music, sports, wine, and food, as well as fashion, for more than 60 years.

Last year, JUN defined its company philosophy as "social style", which is a life philosophy on "how to get involved with society". We believe that CULTURE has a very important place in our lives and society. We hope that everyone can lead a culture-oriented life and want to convey that each person represents a culture. To materialize our hopes, together with all stakeholders in society, we will share the phrase "YOU ARE CULTURE." to share our values.
As our first step, the slogan "YOU ARE CULTURE." conveys our ideas to the world and our wish to build a large social activity.
