Why Don't You...?


知識がなくてもワイン楽しんでみたらどう?

Enjoy Wine Even If You Don't Know Much About It?



この星の若者はSNSとかインタネットのなんとかとか
そういうのは秒速でマスターするのに
お勉強しないとつかない知識に関しては
ひけ越しで嫌煙するのよね

ワインとか顕著じゃない?
今の若者にワインを学ばせるのは、飲食店勤めとかじゃないかぎり厳しいわよ
だってモテたいっていう気持ちをもつメンズが減ってるんだもの
今の50代のおじさんがワインに詳しいのは、
このモテたいって気持ちのおかげよ

だってワインを知っていたら素敵でしょ
本当にお好きな人ももちろんいらっしゃるでしょうけど
ほとんどは口説くため、もしくは自分を華やかに盛り立てるための知識なのよ

そういうマインドの違ったことを若者に説法したって無駄よね
でもね、ワインの知識なんかなくてもいいのよ

忙しいなか、勉強に何年もかけるのも現実的じゃないし、
若者の給料なんてたかがしれてるから、
お酒にばっかりもかけていられないんでしょ

でもね、宣伝じゃないけどBYO(ワインの持込み)はおすすめよ
なぜかはこれから教えてあげる

若者はね、知ってるから持ち込むんじゃないの
知るために持ち込むのよ

BYOをする時はまず、ワインショップにいくのよ
そこで、一番お気に入りのお姉さんに聞くの(お兄さんでもいいわよ)

例えば、今日和牛カルビが美味しい焼き肉屋さんにいくんだけど、
どのワインが合いますかとか
今日はおそば屋さんで粋に一杯やりたいんだけど
お寿司屋さんで彼女をオシャレに喜ばせたいんだけど
お母さんにボルチー二のクリームパスタが、、、とかね

向かっているレストランで食べる予定の料理の話をするのよ

そしたらね、ワインショップの人はだいたい資格を持っているだろうから
(そういうショップを選びなさい)
きっと丁寧に教えてくれるわよ

そこで、カベルネとピノノワールがどう違うのかとか質問してもいいわけじゃない

なんのためにプロがいるの?
机の上で1年勉強するよりも
俺には無理だと諦めるよりも
その道の玄人に聞くのが一番早いのよ
聞いてるうちにね、自然に覚えていくのよ

ちょっとまって
その前にね、あなたたち
食事会、会食、デート、なんでもいいわ
レストランを選ぶ時に、適当に選んでるんじゃないでしょうね

「なに食べたいかなー?分かんない♩適当に決めて」
とか言ってる人任せなあんたには、あなたらしい幸せな未来なんて待ってないわよ

今日が最後の晩餐だとは言わないにしても
大切な人と、安心して囲むディナーくらいは
あなた自身で選びなさいよ

相手が好きなものが一番美味しいお店をチョイスするとか
自身の食の探求でもいいけど

いつもの適当なファミレスでいっかとか
お金と時間を怠惰に使ってじゃないわよ

そういう意識のない食事をしてるからどんどんデブるのよ

いい?
まずあなたが何を食べたいのか?
同じ時間を共にする人が何を食べたいのか
はっきりさせるのよ

そのカテゴリーや料理で最高なものが食べられるレストランをチョイスするの
(もちろん予算も考えるのよ)

レストランに向かう前はなんとなくじゃなくて、
今日味わう予定のものを意識するのよ

それからワインショップへ向かうの

「今日の料理にぴったり合うワインをチョイスしてきたから」
なんていったらきっと同伴の人々には感動されるわよ

まぁ、わたしが言いたいのはね
なんでも意識することが大事なのよ

適当に流し食べしてしまうディナーも
意識してこだわることによって
思い出深く、感動を与える晩餐にすることも可能なのよ

その演出にワインを使ってみてもいいんじゃないの?
っていう話をしているわけ
そうやっていくうちに自然に知識もついていくのよ

かならずしも知識が必要なわけじゃないのよ
この世にはエキスパートがいるんだから

一階の晩餐も無駄にするんじゃないわよ
食事の大切さが分かったのなら
知識がなくてもワイン楽しんでみたらどう?


The young people on this planet are able to master things like SMS and the Internet at the speed of light, but anything that requires a little bit of knowledge, they tend to shy away from, don't they? 
Wine appreciation for example, that's abundantly clear isn't it?
It would be quite difficult to educated young people about wine unless they are going to start working in a liquor store.
But the men who want to be cool and succeed with the girls are few and far between.
The reason that 50 year-old men are proficient about wines is exactly because they wanted to be popular with the ladies.
I mean, it's impressive to know about wines, right?
I mean, sure, there are people who really like this subject itself, but most just use the knowledge to chat women up or to make themselves look good. 
It's pointless to lecture to young people with such a different mindset, but you don't really have to be knowledgeable about wine.
If you're too busy, then studying years about something isn't realistic; and young people's salaries are insignificant,so they can't possibly be expected to spend much on wine. 
But, and I'm not advertising here or anything, I recommend BYOW (Bring your Own Wine), and I will now explain why.
Young people should not bring their own because they know wines, but in order to get to know them.
Because when you BYOW, you first have to go to the shop. There you should ask for help from the staff you have your eye on (like a good-looking girl or a cool guy).
For example, today I'm going to a Korean BBQ place where the beef short ribs are good; what wine should I bring?
Or, we're having a toast at the noodle restaurant...
Or, I'd like to make my girlfriend happy in an elegant way at the sushi restaurant tonight...
Or, I'm bringing my mom a porcini cream pasta... etc.
You tell them about the food you are going to eat at the restaurant you're going to. Then I suppose the wine shop attendants must have some qualifications (at least be sure to choose such a shop), and they will for sure give you the right advice. 
At such a shop, you can easily ask what the differences are between Cabernet and Pinot Noir. 
What is the purpose of having professionals?

Instead of studying at your desk for a year, and instead of quitting just because it's not for you... It's quickest to find an expert in the field, and ask them; while you're listening, you're also learning. 
But wait a minute, before that, when you're choosing a restaurant for a dinner party, for a meal between friends, a date, whatever, you don't pick the most suitable one, do you?
"Let's see, what do I want to eat...? I don't know, you pick something." If you are one to leave things to others, you are not looking at a bright, typical-you future. 
Even if today isn't your last supper, you should be capable of choosing a venue that will make your significant other feel relaxed. You should choose the best restaurant for the type of food your date likes. Or even if you're going on your own food quest, thinking "Oh well, we'll just go to the closest family restaurant" is a terrible waste of money and time due to laziness. 
It's because you have such unaware dinners, that you're putting on weight. 
Hear me out...
First, be clear on what you want to eat and what your partner wants to eat. Then choose the best available restaurant that serves food in that category (with consideration to your budget of course). 
Then, not just slap-dashedly when you get to the restaurant, but beforehand be aware of the tastes you are about to experience that day.
Then... you make your way to the wine shop. 
If you get to say "Today, I have selected a wine that will best accompany our food", you will surely impress you dinner companion. 
See, the thing I'm trying to say is that it's important to be aware of things. 
Even a simple dinner that you just chow down...
If you make yourself aware and pay attention, you can make it into an inspiring last supper, which will create deep memories. 
Why don't you try to use wine for the performance? That's what I'm talking about.
You don't have to have knowledge about things; that's why there are experts in the world.  
Don't waste even another supper. 
If you understand the importance of dining...
Why don't you try to enjoy wine even if you don't know much about it?
