    Winemaker Notes

    Combining ancient Japanese artisan tradition with modern technology, Rock Saké brings the best of Asian refinement to the American palate. Its smooth, fresh flavor is hand crafted, using only the finest ingredients - all natural rice and pure water from the coastal mountain ranges of Oregon. It has light floral and sweet citrus on the nose, and a perfectly balanced body with hints of rock melon and an even finish.

    Rock Sake, Oregon
    It all began back in the 3rd century when Japanese artisans milled rice to create the first sake. Rock Sake uses the same handcrafted techniques to make our very own artisanal sake in the US. The rice is grown in Northern California, and Rock Sake is brewed to perfection in small batches using only pure mountain spring water from the Pacific Northwest. Rock Sake is the best locally raised, farm-to-bottle sake you will ever taste.

    Home to some of America’s most celebrated Pinot Noir, Oregon maintains a tight focus on small production, high quality wine even while the state’s industry enjoys steady growth. As a world-renowned wine region, Oregon has more than 700 wineries and is home to well over 70 grape varieties. With a mostly Mediterranean climate, its cooler and wetter regions lie in the west, close to the Pacific Coast.

    By far the most reputed region is the Willamette Valley, which is further subdivided into six smaller appellations: Chehalem Mountains, Dundee Hills, Eola-Amity Hills, McMinnville, Ribbon Ridge and Yamhill-Carlton.

    The Valley’s obvious success story is with Pinot Noir, which here takes on a personality that could be described in general terms as somewhere in between the wines of California and Burgundy—and is often more affordable than either one. The best Willamette Pinot noir has a rare combination of red and black fruit, elegant balance, high acidity and rustic earth. While completely enjoyable in their youth, some of the better, single vineyard or appellation-specific Pinot noirs can often benefit from some cellar time.

    Other AVAs in Oregon’s west worth noting include Umpqua Valley and Rogue Valley.

    In the east are Snake River Valley, which overlaps into Idaho, and Columbia Valley, which Oregon shares with Washington. Summers are hot and dry in these regions but winters are cold and rainy.

    Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Riesling and Pinot blanc also grow successfully in Oregon.

    Junmai-Daiginjo

    View all wine

    Saké with the highest milling requirement at 50%, so that 50% of each grain of rice remains unmilled, is called Junmai-Daiginjo. It is, just like Junmai and Junmai-Ginjo, made up solely of water, koji mold, yeast and rice. The categories of saké are established not by rice variety, but by polishing or milling percentages; this category is the highest.
