Are you interested in learning more about sake in a private session, where you can ask any question you'd like, bring a group of friends or coworkers, or even customize the class to specific regions or topics?

Sunflower Sake is available and excited to teach. Our maximum capacity for a private event in the bar is 10 guests, seated tasting/class is 25 guests. Classes can be hosted on-premise in a private room at the Olympic Mills Commerce Center, or off premise at a location of your choosing. Washoku catering (Japanese cuisine) designed specifically for sake pairing is available through GinRinPDX and charged at her own rates. Please note that GinRin practices whole fish, no waste cookery, and her menus reflect this commitment. In addition, availability must be confirmed separately.

Classes scheduled outside of regular business hours (Sat, Sun, Mon, Tuesday before 2):
One hour class/tastings on general subjects (such as intro to sake) are charged at the following rate, which includes materials:
$100 base fee + $30/guest

Alternatively, for sake selections centered around a custom class theme I offer the following adjusted rate:

$100 base fee + $25/guest + sake (discounted 10% from retail)

Classes scheduled during regular business hours:
Increase to $200 base fee. Depending on the size of the event, additional surcharges may apply for holidays, Fridays and evenings.
