Born in Hiroshima Japan in 1977, Osamu Uchida grew up with parents who owned a wine shop and a rice-farmer grandfather.  The family heritage as farmers and wine merchants inspired Osamu's passion for France and its vineyards.  His dream of making wine led Osamu to move to France in 1999 to study viticulture and oenology in Bordeaux.  When studies ended in 2001, Osamu continued his studies at several wineries in the Côte-Rôtie at Clusel-Roch, in Banyuls at Vial Magnere, in Bordeaux at L’Arrivée Haut-Brion and several more vineyards in the Loire and Savoie.

In 2015, Osamu started with 0.6ha of 30 years old Cabernet Sauvignon planted on 15 inches of sandy top soil followed by clay and limestone soil. This soil allows the grapes to ripen with balance at a low level of alcohol. Prior to Osamu this vineyard was farmed without chemicals.  It is isolated and surrounded by a forest.  Since purchase, Osamu has meticulously farmed organically since 2015 and since 2019 in biodynamie. From this parcel comes the cuvée called Miracle. Today, he oversees 2.4ha of biodynamic vineyards, 5 plots in the Haut-Médoc. The total production is between 3,000 and 5,000 bottles.
