Pairing Wine With My Life's Adventure

REINVENTION: Quit my job in IT, sold my house and moved from Cal to NYC for sommelier classes. GETTING MY HANDS DIRTY: Moved to Napa and worked in a vineyard making wine. TRAVEL: Through France and Italy on a wine scavenger hunt. Sto cambiando la mia vita e desidero imparare circa vino. Je change ma vie et je veux me renseigner sur le vin. TRY TO GET SERIOUS: Living in New York for 4 years and working as a Sommelier. NEW GOALS: Do my own thing, find love, speak Spanish, live wine.

This is the only store, which is in SF, in the US that is sake only. Here is an excerpt from their latest newsletter (Beau Timken is the owner and is a sake sommelier):

"... sake has 1/3 the acidity of wine... it has far lower histamine levels... and of course how it is pasteurized and as such has no sulfites."

The hot stuff I usually drink is not the best as far as quality goes, but I always have such a good time drinking it. More research needed here. Jon Inazaki turned me onto this place and I've yet to go, but next time I'm there (to see Willie Nelson at the Filmore) I'm going. p.s. I learned, back in New York, that mold is actually one of the ingredients needed to make sake.
