Naughty Stephane Bannwarth

A self-taught, unconventional genius wine maker. Stephane Bannwarth is the 3rd generation wine maker of his family wine business. His grandparents used to sell grape, then his parents sell unbranded wine to négociant. Stephane thinks that their effort input to the vineyard deserves a good name. So he bottles their wine under his grandpa’s name and march to international market. Their slogan is One land, one family and one heart. Believe or not, his grandparents still keep the habit of starting in the vineyard 5:00 am in the morning and finish late in the evening because they insist everything hand made.

He has not been formally educated as an oenologist, but he is inspired by Josco Gravner who is regarded as the God-father of “Orange Wine “in Friuli of Italy, though they never met. Stephane read all publications and interviews about him and made wine following Josco’s idea. After several years of experiment, Stephane has got his ow n style. To me his wine is innocent, easy to understand but in fact, there are many stories behind, and always surprise you. He always wants to make wine that lures you keep on sipping. He likes to play with the varietals and tries his best to show the best of each vintage and harvest. Every year, he will make each varietal in a unique style that he thinks best suit the harvest.

Let’s take an example of his Muscat. He made vendange tardive, “Orange”, slightly sparkling, still dry and this time, “Orange” , dry and sparkling all three in one with lees on to keep the freshness. As usual, very fruity on the nose with white rose, lychee, longan, white tea and herbs. One the palate it is stone dry and with tinnie winnie hint of alcohol that make you think it is non-alcoholic, with always a very clever acidity at the end to constitute great balance and harmony. So ladies, please be aware of your honour.


曳曳 史提芬

史提芬.班威夫是他家族葡萄酒業第三代釀酒師和當家。創始時他的祖父自耕出售葡萄式;他的父親就出售葡萄給中間商。到了他這一代,就祖父的名字命名灌瓶 ,並進軍國際市場。以"一家丶一園丶一心"作為他們的座右銘。至今他的祖父母依然堅持每天清長五時開始打理葡萄園,傍晚在下班。因為他們堅持純天然。

史提夫.班威夫沒有上過大學唸醸酒學。受到意大利弗留利"橙酒"教父若科哥.格芙納的啟發,儘管他兩素未謀面。閲讀了所有關於若斯哥的採訪及文獻,遵從他的理念來造天然酒。幾年下來,已創出自已的風格。

他的酒天真漫爛、很容易懂,但其實背後大有文章,往往叫人驚喜!他總愛造些惹得人一口接一口追的酒。他愛把玩不同品種,因應當年收成狀態,淋漓盡致地發揮該品種。每年不同的品類都因應收成釀出獨特的風格。

例如麝香葡萄,他醸過濃甜的晚採、"橙酒"丶微氣泡丶靜止的乾白。今次2016的收成,他來一個氣泡丶橙丶乾三合一再加連酒渣灌瓶,使酒保持新鮮。

一如他的招牌風格,聞香時果味澎湃,荔枝丶龍眼丶白茶丶白玫瑰、香草。口感卻是乾且清冽,隱隱約約的酒精使人誤以為是果汁。收結是很巧妙的酸度,既平衡且和諧。淑女們:小心你們的名節唷!
