[vc_row css_animation=”” row_type=”row” use_row_as_full_screen_section=”no” type=”full_width” angled_section=”no” text_align=”left” background_image_as_pattern=”without_pattern”][vc_column][vc_column_text]Long Island has a prominent wine region, and breweries have been taking off. Many have tasting rooms that offer guests a chance to sip and discover what very well may be new favorites, and explore something new they may not have tried before. If you’re looking to check out some different, the Japanese rice wine known as sake is a fun start.

Stirling Sake in Greenport may serve authentic Japanese fare, including out-of-the-water fresh sushi, but the restaurant prefers to be known first and foremost as a sake tasting house. With 20 revolving sake options, Stirling Sake offers detailed descriptions you would find on tasting menus at wineries and breweries. Ranging from sweet to dry, and even some with a little spice, sake is sorted by rice polishing rates and styles including Ginjo, Junami, and Nigori. They also offer tasting flights to allow guests to taste and learn about different varieties in small glasses. Pinkies out![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
