Mathias De Aguirre

There will be a new governor joining us in the kura this weekend: welcome Mathias de Aguirre, our newest batch of Rising Star! As you may know, we name each batch after a Texas governor, starting with the Spanish government. Mathias de Aguirre was the fourth governor of Spanish Texas, serving from 1703-1705. This most recent batch was just bottled in November, so if you’ve never tried a young saké, this is a special opportunity. New saké has a pleasant tartness that mellows with age—think “vino verde.” You can try the Mathias de Aguirre batch in our tasting room at the Kura at 5501 N. Lamar Saturday afternoons from 2:30-7:00pm. Can’t make it? Try us that morning at the downtown SFC Farmers’ Market Saturday from 9:00am-1:00 pm at the corner of Guadalupe and 5thStreet
