        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 benefits from a marginal climate where grapes must struggle to achieve full ripeness—a challenge that results in high-quality fruit. By far the most important region is the Willamette Valley, which is further subdivided into six smaller AVAs. Surrounded on three sides by mountain ranges, the Willamette Valley is characterized by warm to hot dry summers and cool, rainy winters during which cloud cover is a near-constant. Along with the warmer AVAs to the south, including Umpqua Valley and Rogue Valley, it benefits from cool Pacific breezes during the growing season. Further inland, Columbia Valley to the north and Snake River Valley to the east experience cooler, wetter conditions. Post-prohibition viticulture is a relatively new addition to the state, which had been previously deemed unsuitable for the planting of Vitis vinifera grape varieties. That all changed in the mid-1960s, when Pinot Noir was first grown successfully along with other Alsatian varieties. Over the next two decades or so, Oregon continued its ascent to become to Pinot Noir powerhouse we know it as today.

        The obvious success story of Oregon is 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 combination of elegant balance, high acidity, and rustic earth plus bright red fruit places it solidly in the middle of the spectrum for this versatile variety. Other successful varieties here include Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, and Riesling.

        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.
