“For 2018 was Perth Sake Festival hosted in Lion Oriental Food Co., we couldn’t even imagine the support and interest for Japanese Sake and plum wines from our locals. Crowd was huge which led to a queue of people waiting to sample our beautiful collection of Sake, plum wines and not to mention our local cheese from the Swan Valley. It definitely was a great event to bring the Sake world, Perth and cheese together.”
