About sake, Chris Griese says, “Who knew it could be so amazing?” After discovering the incredible quality and diversity of artisan sake in 2006, he launched a personal “sake crusade” across the State of Minnesota, believing that enlightened wine drinkers should discover the beauty of sake.

 He will guide you through a tasting of the many styles of this storied beverage, its fascinating production process, and explore pairing options.

Join the JASP for this free evening at Dreadnought Wines on February 20, 2020. Light hors d’oeuvres and beverages will be provided. 

Chris Griese received his Advanced Sake Professional I Certification in NYC 2009 and his ASP Level II in Tokyo 2011. In 2014, Griese was tapped by the London based Wine & Spirits Educators Trust to become one of their initial team of US based Level III Sake Educators. In 2018, Griese joined Seattle-based Sake Story Imports as Eastern U.S. Sales Manager, a position that enables him to carry the jizake (craft sake) message well beyond Minnesota.
