While passing through Wenhua 1st Road, it's hard to miss the gigantic wine bottle. Taoyuan Sake Brewery is the largest brewery in northern Taiwan, as well as the most productive one. After merging with Taipei, Banqiao and Shulin breweries, currently Taoyuan brewery has the most state-of-the-art equipment. The park next to the brewery has installation art made of wine urns. The entrance trail is covered with curly grape vines and surrounded by trees, offering the cozy atmosphere for wine tasting. Taoyuan brewery is the first modernized and also the only brewery that produces Japanese Sake. The brewery introduces the history of wine making. You can also see the most representative product of Taoyuan Brewery, "Taiwan Sake". The whole process is represented in a small-scale model, from the selection of rice, soaking, fermentation of the wine yeast, etc. Smelling the aroma of distillers' grains makes people anticipate the taste of the end product. Sake-tasting is also available on site. The warm taste in the mouth will make it unforgettable.
 
The “Wine Bank” in the factory is a well-known cellar. The graceful Chinese interior design makes wine tasting a pleasure to experience. Each urn of Nuerhong (Daughter's Wine) and Jhuangyuanhong (Scholar's Wine) symbolize parents' best wishes to their children. The aroma filling the whole room makes people indulge in the reminiscing of the past. The brewery offers DIY courses for groups, including the most popular handmade shio-koji and distillers’ grains soaps. The process is simple and can be enjoyed not only by adults but children, too. The effective natural skin care from the soap is also popular among female customers.
In addition, the brewery also introduces the shio-koji production, which is widely discussed in Japan, as well as creative cocktail mixing. The taste of it will stimulate your taste buds.
 
Besides the nice wine gift boxes, there are also wine-related side products, such as "Sake Mask", a.k.a. " Folk Version SKII", the popular "Healthy Red Yeast Rice Crackers", and the tasty "Shiaoxing Sausage" and so on, for customers who don't drink. Everyone will find a souvenir that suits.

    Snack stop

    Get the sausage and ice cream bars here. Not the best parking but it's cheap and a nice stop for a snack or restrooms or just to stretch your legs.

    嚟之前以為可以自己行嚟行去參觀,點知原來要預約先可以有人帶你行各個廠房,最後只有產品推廣中心可以行,但佢好多部分都冇開冇人,冇得試,好差嘅體驗

    無意中散步到酒場,想來嚐嚐桂圓冰棒,看到小小的庭園美景,心情跟著放鬆下來,偌大的販賣部,居然有優惠活動,送了顆酒蛋與包子,吃的是暖暖的尊重,還有人在928想到……我們!謝謝!

    新品上市

    4 2017-12

    由於天冷微雨,使得今天的酒廠更加冷清,雖然如此,這裡的員工服務態度可一點都不打折,熱心有禮,就好比鄰家的大叔,這也是我們喜歡來這裡的原因。發現有新品上市,紅酒和白酒的PASTA,其中白酒的PASTA是奶油培根口味,味道濃郁,還蠻好吃的,只是麵的量少了些,如果量再多一點就更完美了。
