Welcome to our Sake page from our Spring 2022 virtual event! We partnered with Satoshi Tanaka (Founder and President of East West Wine Trading) and sake ambassador Eduardo Dingler for a sake seminar and comparative tasting. Together, we explored current export trends, dove deep into production, and let the experts explain their favorite pairings (hint: sake is not just for sushi!). Watch the seminar below, or simply refresh and re-up your sake knowledge with our downloadable companion resources.
