SG Wines




A graduate of the University of Bordeaux, Sera is one of the only Japanese ever to earn the prestigious Diplome National d’Oenologue, an advanced degree in winemaking and viticulture.  She has broad experience in the top tiers of international wine, having worked at celebrated domains such as Chateau d’Yquem and Chateau Margaux as well as several cult wines of the Napa Valley.  She has also consulted in other appellations of Europe, North America, and Asia.  In addition to her skills in red and white winemaking, Sera is also considered one of the foremost Asian experts on the production of sweet Noble rot wines.

Today Sera is based in Japan and consults for winery and restaurant clients around Asia.  With her extensive knowledge of viticulture and oenologie, Sera represents a new, modern breed of Japanese winemaker with the skills and education to craft wines which compete at the international level.  In working closely with her clients, her vision is to produce world-class Asian wines which are a true reflection of the appellations and cultures in which the grapes are grown.
