    Joanna has chosen each wine as a worthy alternative to more familiar names, and the tasting will seek to demonstrate their quality, food-matching credentials, and also what makes them dare to be different.

The top candidate will then compete for the title where, in front of a live audience, candidates will be tested both practically and orally on errors on a sake list, food and sake matching, service skills and a blind tasting.
