June 20-22 -The Professional Course (San Francisco, CA)

Heeeeeeee's Back! My buddy John Gauntner is back in the states to offer another of his sake courses coming up at the end of June. If you have not taken one of John's courses and you are serious about sake this is a not to miss learning experience. John has crafted his program over the years and it is the best informative sake course out there. Herewith is John's description:

Date: June 20, 21 and 22, 2010

On June 20, 21 and 22, 2010, I will hold the fifth stateside version of the Sake Professional Course the Bentley Reserve in San Francisco. While three full days of sake is admittedly intense, "no sake stone remains left unturned." Upwards of 80 sake will be tasted across the course. Participants will also have the opportunity to take an exam for Level I Sake Specialist certification immediately following the course.

A day-by-day syllabus and testimonials from past participants can be found at www.sake-world.com/html/spclv.html. The cost for the three-day class, including all materials and all sake for tasting, is US$775. For reservations or inquiries, please email SakeCourseStateside @ sake-world.com.
