beautiful SAKE

Last night I tried a delicious sake:

Wakatake Onikoroshi Ginjo Sake

Light, smooth and rich type. Very clean, round and quite

impressive in the mouth.

Little hint of watermelon.

Wakatake History

Established in 1832, from Shizuoko prefecture.
Located along the Ohi river, in the center of Japan, flowing to the Pacific Ocean from Japan’s southern Alps; the town of Shimada once prospered as one of the lodging towns of the 53 post stations of the Tokaido.
The original Wakatake Onikoroshi sake is historically famous for having comforted many weary travelers crossing the Ohi river. For years, since the brewery’s foundation, they have lived through the rise and fall of history with the people in the town, and have enjoyed their hospitality.
Although there were several breweries in the town at that time, due to its good-quality water, Ohmuraya shuzojo brewery is the only one remaining now. They continue doing their best to convey one of the most important traditional industries of Japan to the next generation.
Wakatake is run by Mr. Matsunaga, the 6th Generation President and the Brewmaster is Mr. Hibino.



  1. Next time I am at a Japanese restaurant or Sake Bar I will order it.
    Thank you for the tip. Sake is a hard thing to chose, we always need to ask for help, or suggestions!


  2. Expert em sakê também é enólogo (como um expert em vinhos)? ou será sakólogo?
