True Sake In The News - Wine Enthusiast, LA Times, WWDScoop

Posted by admin in 2007, June, News, Newsletter

sake in the news june 2007We had some good sake blasts in some very serious and not so serious publications this month. There is a nice little piece about what I call "New World Sakes" in the Wine Enthusiast (June) about sparkling sakes. Yes, we have invaded the heart of darkness - the written wine world - two months in a row now, coming on the heels of the large spread in the Wine Spectator last month. The spot on sparkling sakes in WE had one huge mistake, which I will clarify now, as she was using my info for the whole piece. Sudo Honke was not selling sparking sake commercially years ago as indicated in the story. They do not have an on-line link for the story, which is on page 14 and has reviews for 4 sparkling sakes with a nice photo of me in the store.

LA TimesNext up is a solid article in the LA Timeswhich goes the opposite direction and focuses in on "Old World Sakes" or as I said in the article "old school" brews. So we go from "new school sakes" in the Wine Enthusiast to old-school sake making in the LA Times. I gave the majority of information in this Times piece, and I liked Linda's efforts to shed light on why brewers go the extra mile to make sake the hard way! I will speak more about "Kioke" or wood-vat fermented sakes in a future Newsletter article, but for now please enjoy this good article.

Lastly, for all of you fashion dogs, the industry trade magazine for all things wardrobe/textile fashion WWD has a monthly rag called WWDScoop, and True Sake is listed in the May issue as a cool thing to do in San Francisco.
