  • Y by YOSHIKI

    Founded in 2009, “Y by YOSHIKI” is the collaboration of Japanese artist Yoshiki Hayashi and Napa Valley winemaker and 4th generation vintner, Rob Mondavi Jr.

    The wines are sourced from premium vineyards across California and express the artistry, quality and creativity of this unique partnership.

    ABOUT Y

    “Y by YOSHIKI” wine is created in collaboration with Rob Mondavi Jr., 4th generation Napa Valley winemaker and grandson of Robert Mondavi.

    As a wine lover and California resident, YOSHIKI has truly respected the Mondavi family and their long commitment to producing world class wines for many generations. From this respect, the “Y by YOSHIKI” collaboration was born in 2009.

    In February 2009, YOSHIKI met with Michael Mondavi and his son, Rob Mondavi Jr. They invited YOSHIKI to their Napa Valley home to have dinner and to discuss their new collaboration wine project. They tasted many wines together that evening in order to get a sense of the wines that YOSHIKI loves and enjoys. The next day, YOSHIKI and winemaker Rob Mondavi Jr. visited the Michael Mondavi Family Estate where they tasted and blended many different wines from the different barrels of Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon in order to blend the perfect wines for YOSHIKI.

    The first two wines of their new collaboration, -- “Y by YOSHIKI California Chardonnay 2008” and “Y by YOSHIKI California Cabernet Sauvignon 2008” were released in Autumn 2009 exclusively in Japan.

    In the fall of 2016, YOSHIKI released his “Napa series” of wines – “Y by YOSHIKI Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2011” and “Y by YOSHIKI Napa Valley Chardonnay 2012”. The grapes for these luxury wines were sourced exclusively from selected vineyards in the Napa Valley. The reputation for these wines continued to grow and after several YOSHIKI television appearances featuring the wines, “Y by YOSHIKI Napa Valley” wines became instantly famous and quickly sold out. Since then, the “Y by YOSHIKI” wines have become more and more difficult to obtain.

    YOSHIKI decided to create a new blend of “smart casual wine” so that the average consumers could enjoy his California wines. YOSHIKI and Rob went back to work and in July 2018, they released their "California series" of wines – “Y by YOSHIKI California Chardonnay 2017” and “Y by YOSHIKI California Cabernet Sauvignon 2017” both of which were sold out within 6 months.

    At the end of 2018, in celebration of his 10-year partnership with Rob Mondavi Jr., YOSHIKI released his “masterpiece”, the 10th Anniversary Special Edition “Y by YOSHIKI Oakville Napa Valley 2016”.

    In the summer of 2019, YOSHIKI released his new vintage of “California series”, “Y by YOSHIKI “Encore” California Chardonnay 2017” and “Y by YOSHIKI California Cabernet Sauvignon 2017”. And now in December 2020, YOSHIKI is releasing the new vintages of both, “Y by YOSHIKI California” and “Y by YOSHIKI Oakville”, as well as a new line called “Y by YOSHIKI Russian River Valley”.

    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” – and the future of these wines and their collaboration together will continue to shine bright, like the stars that they are.

    MESSAGE

    “When I compose a song, I write the score on a piece of paper, rarely do I use a musical instrument. I can hear everything in my head. It’s almost always complete. Wine to me is a song. My imagination flows with every sip and my mind is set free.Together with Rob Mondavi, Jr., Y was created out of my passion for wine and music.

    YOSHIKI

    Yoshiki is a very unconventional artist and musician who broke the norms of the Japanese music world. He is a man of overwhelming presence on stage yet is so soft-spoken off stage. He is a classical pianist as well as a rock band drummer. He’s a “creative chameleon” who can change his personality to adapt to any situation. Because of this, Yoshiki has very unique perspective. While he respects traditional values, he also challenges the limits to create original, new, and fresh ideas. In this sense, Yoshiki and I are both artists, sharing the same perspective when we make wines together.

    Rob Mondavi Jr.
