Sake Tengoku, importers of fine Japanese Sake, is very pleased to invite you to the David Bowler Wine Company Spring Portfolio Tasting. We will be offering for tasting, a remarkable collection of sake from Japan that we represent in the New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania markets as of March 1. Sake Tengoku’s portfolio of high quality, small production sake producers have never been available on the East Coast until now!
Sake Tengoku is a partnership of three industry veterans, acclaimed chef Ken Tominaga, Sake Sommelier Stuart Morris and Julie Bath, business manager. Through our personal visits and contacts in Japan, we have carefully created a portfolio that represents some of the top sake regions in Japan, as well as, a diverse range of styles and price points. These sakes are already making a big impact in many of the top Asian and Western Cuisine restaurants in San Francisco and Northern California.
On March 18th from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm, at the Metropolitan Pavillon, 110 West 19th Street, between 6th and 7th Avenues.
We look forward to seeing you!
