This Saturday!!

With Monica Samuels - Sake expert

We are constantly tasting new wine, whiskey and beer in order to stay ahead of the curve. While I am just scratching the surface of the complex world of Sake I could not be more excited about the
complexity and depth of flavor in the Sake we have brought in recently. To that end:
Join us Saturday April 7th from 11am-2pm for a Sake Tasting at the Forsyth Location . We are very excited to have Monica Samuels, National Sake Sales Manager of Vine Connections, in store to taste through a wide selection of Sake from her portfolio.

Monica grew up bilingual and bi-cultural, speaking Japanese at home while living in Los Angeles, and spending every summer in Tokyo with her grandparents. With a grandfather who was a sake brewer Monica has been around sake from a young age, but the turning point was working for the Japanese-Peruvian-Brazilian inspired SushiSamba, her first job after moving to NYC.
