Introduction to Sake | Monica Samuels

Journee’s wine program, curated by Richard Betts and Carla Rzeszewski, makes getting a top-quality education accessible and approachable. With the help of dozens of the world’s leading sommeliers and industry pros, we’re knocking wine off its pedestal. Each class utilizes deductive blind tasting to help us better understand varieties from around the world.

This class will be taught by Monica Samuels, National Sake Sales Manager for Vine Connections, a portfolio of 13 producers that span from Hokkaido to Kyushu. Monica has been particularly successful in demystifying sake for the American audience through her previous work with the SushiSamba restaurant group and Southern Wine & Spirits.
