沽者的兩難 Wine Merchant’s Dilemma

 

沽者的兩難

從七歲開始在家偷酒喝到現在,確確實實喝了半個世紀的酒。因為職權之便,堪稱乞丐頭王帝嘴,喝遍不少佳釀。從事酒業快四十年了,最大的滿足感不是喝最貴最好,而是發現了養在深閨人未識的隱世極品,由自己開始把他引薦給飲家而贏得共鳴。下海從商至今,一乏眼就十一年。很感恩遇到不少隱世高人,感謝他們的厚愛讓我代理。也承蒙一些行家的錯愛,從我手中接過代理權。名成利就而下堂求去的生產商比比皆是。看著他們振翅高飛,我由衷的祝福。 

不是我故作大方,我從來都愛找小農酒莊,愛的是他們的熱忱、工藝、創意、與承傳。一旦他們遺忘初心爭名逐利,表現在作品中也會失真,完全不是同一個味兒。我相信我心水清的鐵粉們,很快可以對號入座,哈哈!你明啦! 

一個我最捨不得高調宣傳的酒莊,羅蘭班威夫,他們十分低調,祖孫三輩守著 一家、一地、一心的座右銘,同心同德釀出精品。不矯情、不刻意求工。輕描淡寫、信手拈來,率性而為卻不失公整,天真爛漫中內藏智慧。總而言之就是高! 

曾經有人用稚氣來形容羅蘭班威夫的風格。我不敢苟同!他們那份純潔和精煉;絕對不是誤打誤撞出來的;而是千錘百鍊得來的自信而累積的神來之筆。 

假如你還在追求濃郁、複雜、雕琢,班威夫不一定是你的那杯酒,也許你需要再多十來年的冼練才能體會。 

為了讓飲家深入了解,班威夫的釀酒哲學,我們將舉辦他的瓊瑤漿深度飲。希望大家踴躍參與,更希望班威夫維持初心,成名了不要漲價 !

Wine Merchant’s Dilemma

From the age of seven, I started stealing wine at my family restaurant and I have a drinking experience of half a century ! I took advantage as a wine marketer and I have drunk a lot of top fine wines. Having been in the wine industry for almost 40 years, and the greatest satisfaction is not to drink the most expensive and best wine,  but the discovery of the best hidden wines that was raised in the boudoir, and I started to introduce them to drinkers to win resonance. It has been eleven years since I started my own wine business venture . I am very grateful that I have met many hidden experts, and I am grateful for their trust and let me represent them. Thanks to some competitors who took over the agency right from me. There are many producers who seek fame and fortune. Watching them fly high, I offer my sincere blessings.

It's not that I'm pretending to be generous, I've always liked to find small growers’ wineries. I love their enthusiasm, craftsmanship, creativity, and heritage. Once they forget their original intention to compete for fame and fortune, their performance will be distorted in their works, which is not the same taste at all. I believe that my die-hard fans will be able recognise them , Haha! You know!

One of the wineries that I am most reluctant to publicize is Laurent Bannwarth. They are very low-key. The grandparents and grandchildren adhere to the motto of One Family, One   Terroir and One Heart, and work together to produce high-quality wine. Not pretentious, not deliberately seeking work. Understatement, easily understood, candid but fair, naïve and full of wisdom. All in all it is high! 

Someone once used childishness to describe Laurent Bannwarth’s style. I beg to differ! Their purity and refinement are definitely not made by chance; they are the result of self-confidence and accumulation of hard work. 

If you are still looking for richness, complexity and sculpting, Bannwarth  may not be your glass of wine, maybe you need another decade of practice to experience it. 

In order to give drinkers an in-depth understanding of Bannwarth’s winemaking philosophy, we will be hosting his Gewurztraminer food and wine pairing lunch. We look forward to your participation, and I hope that Bannwarth will maintain its original intention and not raise prices when it becomes famous!
