X JAPAN Drummer YOSHIKI Unveils Five New Signature Wines
December 8, 2020, 4 months ago
X Japan drummer Yoshiki has been releasing his signature wines, Y by Yoshiki, since 2008 in collaboration with Napa Valley winemaker and 4th generation vintner Rob Mondavi Jr. On December 3rd he unveiled five new vintages, which are now available:
- Russian River Valley Pinot Noir 2017
- Russian River Valley Chardonnay 2018
- California Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
- California Chardonnay 2019
- Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
Y by Yoshiki has already been released in four series and nine types since 2009, but it is sold out instantly every time it is released, and it is also called "phantom wine." When it was released last time in August 2019, it garnered exceptional achievement in the wine industry, such as recording the shipment volume of 25,000 units in just two weeks from the release date. In addition, it has appeared one after another on the wine list of top hotels and restaurants, and its high quality has been praised.
The success of Yoshiki and Rob Mondavi Jr.’s twelve year partnership has produced three core brands – Y by Yoshiki California, Y by Yoshiki Oakville, and Y by Yoshiki Russian River Valley.
