Gambero Rosso – The Guardian of Italian Wines

Gambero Rosso – The Guardian of Italian Wines

Wine

大紅蝦(Gambero Rosso)是意大利最有影響力的飲食及葡萄酒出版及廣播權威,成立於1986年。為了推廣意大利的葡萄酒文化到世界各地,由1987年開始,以簡單的通訊形式開始出版葡萄酒評鑑 《Vini d’ Italia》,最初只品評較少量的葡萄酒,慢慢發展至現在的規模,更加成為了世界性的意大利葡萄酒權威刊物,有如意大利酒的 《米芝蓮指南》。

Gambero Rosso, the international food, wine, publishing and broadcasting conglomerate founded in 1986, is influential and authoritative in Italy. To promote Italian wine culture to other parts of the world, it published the Gambero Rosso guidebook Vini d’ Italia in late 1987 in newsletter format with reviews of a limited number of wines – serving as a modern Bible of Italian wines.

我喜歡電影,但我不特別喜歡占士邦系列電影,可能是因為在眾多男主角中,我只喜歡辛康納利,而邦女郎就更是無一個喜歡,反而喜歡飾演奸角的蘇菲瑪素。不過,我反而很喜歡每次在電影中出現的占士邦戰車,尤其是在《鐵金剛大戰金手指》和《鐵金剛勇破魔鬼黨》兩套電影中出現的Aston Martin DB5。而這部戰車,亦於去年九月的香港蘇富比秋季拍賣會中展出,我專程去了會展一趟,看看這部難得一見的占士邦戰車。

What Else Besides Tempranillo?

What Else Besides Tempranillo?

每逢提起西斑牙葡萄酒往往都離不開Rioja的紅、白酒,而然西班牙盛產其他葡萄酒如Sherry,今期便為大家介紹較少人知的葡萄佳釀。有275年歷史的Bodegas Alvear乃Andalucia區最古老的釀酒廠。傳至第八代的Alvear,他們善於採用Pedro Ximenez葡萄釀造Sherry雪梨酒,以名為Criaderas及Solera,一個源於西班牙南部的方法釀酒。

Whenever someone mentions Spanish Reds they don’t really go far from Rioja, which is a shame since Spain truly has one of the world’s best wineries, with Bodegas Alvear being one of them. Throughout its 275 years, Alvear is the oldest winery in Andalucia and one of the oldest in Spain, stretching through eight generations. Using Pedro Ximenez grapes, Alvear adopts the Criaderas and Solera system, unique and originated in the south of Spain.

SOLER – “Blending” of the Music Journey

SOLER – “Blending” of the Music Journey

Wine

The Hong Kong music industry, once flourished, or perhaps is still flourishing, has nurtured numerous music talents – singer-songwriters, composers, lyrists, bands and groups. How many of whom are still prominent after years of glamour? Or how many of whom brought down the curtain on their career without any reason? Can the evolving music industry guarantee life-long fame to these dreamers?

多年來香港樂壇經歷幾許風雨,孕育出許多能唱能演的全能歌手、作曲家、作詞人、樂隊組合,當中有些經歷時代巨輪仍然屹立不倒,有些曇花一現卻沉寂多年,亦有些仍在路上跌跌踫踫,還在尋尋覓覓之中。但誰說一夜成名可擔保擁有暢通無阻的星途?
