If you have an RV and are part of Harvest Hosts, be sure to do an overnight stay at this site. I did not stay as a HH but we came to spend a few hours. We did the Sake Tasting and that was delicious and wonderful! Sat outside on their lovely deck and sampled some yummy sake. They also had a limited food menu but we did not partake. We also were fortunate to arrive in time to get a tour of the facility. Sorry, I cannot remember his name, but one of the employees gave us a very interesting and informative tour of the sake factor. It is quite a process to make sake! We ended up purchasing 3 bottles!!
I totally recommend a visit to SakeOne.

In an area with hundreds of wineries and breweries, it was exciting to find something different. Sake One offers a nice variety of tastings with very knowledgeable and super friendly staff. The Sake process is so different that you really should take the free tour (Fri-Sun @ 1, 2 & 3, or by appointment) to learn about the fascinating process. I never thought I liked Sake until I visited Sake One!

We had a group of 13 friends doing a limo tour of wineries in the Forest Grove area. I had seen the signs for Sake One and checked out their website. While planning the trip I was kind of hesitant throwing this in as a stop for our wine tour, since it is not a typical winery. I wasn't sure what the others would think. Sake One was our first stop of our four visits, and our favorite. Along the trip I heard several of our friends comment about just heading back to Sake One, especially after a rude greeting we got at the Montinore Winery. I think it was the favorite stop of the trip, it was definitely mine.

We arrived at Sake One around noon. The staff was wonderful; they greeted us, gave us a little talk about Sake One and explained the tasting options. It was Saketini Saturday so they also had a tasting of three different Saketinis. We each chose our tasting packages and began the tasting. The Sake was very different from anything I had experienced at Japanese restaurants. All the Sake's were served cold. One of my favorites was the "Momokawa Silver," it was a dry Sake and the taste evaporated almost immediately, not leaving any strong alcohol taste in your mouth. Many of our group liked the "Silver." The last Sake I had was the plum Sake, it was a fruity plum flavor and reminded me of a sweet dessert wine. We bought a bottle of the plum. They also had a carbonated plum Sake they were serving only on tap. They let everyone try a taste for free. Apparently it is something they are experimenting with. It was great! The Sakitinis were awesome! One was a mango flavor, one an apple cider flavor, and the other was an ice tea flavor.

I will definitely be back.

I really enjoy Sake with my Sushi.....and I always wanted to learn more about this mysterious spirit that most of us only experience at the lower end of the quality level, so much so that they need to heat the Sake and serve it warm. I had noticed that over time, the local Japanese Hibachi or Sushi place started to offer a selection of cold Sake - but like French (and German) wine I could not even begin to decipher the language of Sake. We were in Oregon for a long weekend and while heading from Portland to Eugene we decided to stop in at Forest Grove and see if I could find a cure for my Sake ignorance.....and boy did I. Sake One started as a partnership between Momokawa Brewing Inc. of Japan and an Oregon distributor to promote high quality Japanese Sake in the US market. Turns out that the water in Oregon is considered to be the best in the US for Sake production and with the history and knowledge Momokawa, with the natural resources of Oregon and you have a really good Sake producer and a hell of a host. There are tours daily at 1, 2 & 3 pm on the hour. The tour is about 30 minutes long. It is an easy pace and you learn a great deal about an ancient process that is very new to most of us. There are some stairs and catwalks, but all very doable. But you should not miss the tasting room....and take a flight - there are two...go for the slightly more expensive one (I think it is $7 and a steal) and for an extra $3 you can get a flight with food pairings....but you also get an education from the tasting room staff, including a booklet with all the terms and nuances of Sake. I really enjoyed it, my wife who is not as big a fan was able to sip my choices and learn as well....I did the tasting before the tour (just timing really as we were fitting this in) and I personally would recommend getting there 45 minutes to an hour before a tour time. You enter the Kura (I think it is Japanese for store house - but this is what they call the Sake factory.) with a great deal of knowledge about the finished product and that makes it a little easier to understand and appreciate the brewing process and all that goes into it. I really enjoyed this experience and if you are nearby, you should too. I understand that there are only 6 Sake Breweries in the US, but that is likely to grow....so this is a truly unique experience and one worth taking the time for.

If you ever wondered about Sake - taste? Hot or cold? Rice? this is the place to find all your answers. We had a wonderful tour and tasting and education. They have many styles of Sake and are very helpful with determining what tastes you might like They have their own Sake as well as imports for sale in the simple, elegant tasting room.

Had a great time on the free tour! Sake tasting was only a few dollars (compared to wine tasting which is usually 10-15). They paired yummy local salsas and hummus with each, as well! Definitely an experience you shouldn't skip! I'm a bigger fan of sake now!

My wife and I have loved Sake One's sake for a few years, but we had never been to the sakeria. We showed up about 30 minutes before the tour started and did a tasting. The girl who did the tour also did the tasting and she asked us a number of questions to make sure that she was getting us something that we would like. She was friendly, knowledgeable and willing to answer our (numerous) questions. By the way, I recommend the draft plum sake (like plum sake champagne!) most highly. It's only available at the tasting room and, again, I definitely recommend it.

After the tasting we went on the tour. Very interesting, not very long. There wasn't much to see, as it was the weekend, but it was still very informative and a lot of fun. Plus, it was a good idea to walk it off a bit before driving!

Oh, and the tour is free. Tastings are $5/person for a 6 taste flight or $3 for a 4 taste flight.

My wife and I were traveling with her family from the Oregon coast to Portland. On the way, I looked up a winery, and this sakery on my smart phone as places to stop along the way, based on reviews. This place did not disappoint! We ordered the sake tastings, paired with food (I recommend this) so as to get a better understanding of how sake can accompany food much the same way wine can. The gentleman working that day, Jim, was very knowledgable of sake and taught us about some of the history of sake and how the different types of sake are prepared. Jim was very friendly, had a sense of humor and a quick wit. This stop turned out to be one of the highlights of our trip. If you like sake, don't pass this place up!

A great little tour. Really impressed by the whole operation! Beautiful facilities, loved seeing all the stainless steel vats, 1000# rice bags and learning how sake is made. The gal (Emily?) who toured us was upbeat and gave a really informative talk while shuffling us along in our shoe booties. Loved it!!
The tasting afterwards was so wonderful. I have enjoyed sake in the past but now I have an understanding that helps me make more choices into areas my palate will delight in. Thanks.
