A Japanese treasure

Wagyu cattle have been bred for hundreds of years and are regarded as a national treasure in Japan. In fact, for many years only the Emperor, his family and his Samurai could eat Wagyu beef.

Woodview Wagyu classes

Blue label (top-of-the-range) has a marbling score* of 8 to 9+. It has high amounts of fine web-like intramuscular fat, so much so that the meat actually appears quite white.

Gold label has a marbling score* of 6 to 7, which has a fairly high amount of fine intramuscular fat, translating into that melt-in-the-mouth buttery Wagyu texture.

Silver label has a marbling score* of 3 to 5 with a fair amount of intramuscular fat. It is the perfect introduction for someone trying Wagyu beef for the first time.
