Winery Concert

What is Kuracon?

Kuracon is an event that brings wine lovers together through music and wine. Held in our beautiful pergola-trellised vineyard every April, guests can enjoy a wine party surrounded by a majestic view of peach blossoms covering the Kofu plateau in vivid pink. It’s great scenery, conversation, and music with a glass of wine in hand.

After hearing about “Tokyo Ekicon”, which held a concert in the Tokyo Station, we decided to hold a similar event of our own to celebrate Japanese wine. Kuracon was born in 1988 as a simple, friendly concert and wine tasting party.

Since then it has become our most important and joyful event. We’ve met so many wonderful people over the years and feel very fortunate to share our passion for wine as well as our winery’s beautiful location with them.

What Kind of Event is Kuracon?

It’s a personal, friendly event where guests enjoy unique artists and their love of wine. It begins with a wine tasting party in our backyard vineyard. Under the gentle spring sun, the prior year’s wines are served up with a light meal.

Things then move to the warehouse for the concert. Surrounded by our wine, it’s a fun and intimate event. We welcome unique artists with different styles of music every year.
