Sake Tasting, 5:00-7:00pm, Alpine Wines Bistro, 15 South Main, Driggs, ID – Tasting Fee – $8 plus 10% off any tasting bottle and 15% of any case. Come explore the world of Sake. Sake is an alcoholic beverage of Japanese origin that is made from fermented rice. It is sometimes spelled saki or saké. In the Japanese language it is called nihonshu. Sake is often referred to in English-speaking countries as rice wine; however, this term is a misnomer. Unlike wine, in which alcohol is produced by fermenting sugar that is naturally present in grapes, sake is produced by means of a brewing process more like that of beer. Thus, sake is rice beer rather than rice wine.
