We’re thrilled once again to partner with Fountain Bookstore and bring back “Drinkable Globe” author Jeff Cioletti! Jeff will be signing copies of his latest book “SakePedia: A Non-Traditional Guide to Japan’s Traditional Beverage,” while discussing the history and production of Sake. Meanwhile, Secco will be serving up various Sake and pairings to help educate your palate.

About the Book

As modern palates get progressively more adventurous, sake is having its moment. But as beloved as the beverage is in its native Japan, it’s frequently misunderstood in the rest of the world. Cioletti, a certified international Kikisake-shi―a fancy term for “sake sommelier”―presents a comprehensive guide to sake that both celebrates and demystifies the traditional Japanese drink.
