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.
