July 15th - Wine Class: The Art of Saké (in Connecticut)

West Side Wines

The availability of high quality, artisanal, crafted saké in the U.S, has exploded and more and more top restaurants from L.A. to New York have included them on their wine lists. Join us for an exploration of saké and a tasting of the key styles and quality levels. Learn what daiginjo, honjozo and junmai mean and what it means if your sake is served hot. If you haven't yet tasted top quality saké, its diversity, complexity and deliciousness will surprise you.

Leading the class will be David Roth, saké pro and head bartender at Koji in Hartford. David has completed professional saké courses in Japan and has extensive knowledge. Class is Wednesday, 7/15 from 6:30 to 7:45 p.m. Cost is $35 payable in advance. Note: Course reservations are not confirmed until payment is received in full.
