Sake’ Wine Tasting Friday @ 5:30

Romance of the Orient – Sake

April 3, 2009; 5:30pm

One of the most misunderstood and misinterpreted of all the wines, Sake is a delicate treat.

Premium sake from Japan has been steadily gaining its popularity among American consumers. The import value increased at an annual rate of 13-21% for the last several years. The future demand is expected to grow at a faster rate because of the recent media coverage including the New York Times, CNN and Wine Spectator as well as an increasing number of non-Japanese high-end restaurants offering premium sake on their menu.

We’ll only be show casing high quality sakes served chilled. The lower quality products with grain alcohol fortifications so many people associate with sake will be totally ignored that we can concentrate on products with actually flavors that will explode upon your tongue.

Lynn will also have samples of the rice grains to show how the various quality levels are achieved by the sake maker. Learning what the words ume-shu, Kuramoto and junmai mean and exploring the cultural influences behind this wonderful Oriental wine will only add to the experience.
We’ll be sampling sakes that are sparkling, those that are deep and robust in character, and sweet and delicate as well. Come and catch the romance of the orient as we endeavor to uncover the mysteries of Japan’s drink with the highest acclaim.
