A beauty in front of the camera came to Sicily to become a winery owner. Good looks will eventually fade, but immortal beauty is found in chasing a dream, one’s love, planting one’s foundation in ones own soil, adding value to the world with the sweat of hard work.
Carole Bouquet, 从1977年出道以来，这位法国女演员和模特的音容笑貌和身影出现在60多部影视作品中。1981年，在争芳斗艳的各国美女中被选中为《007之最高机密》中的“邦女郎”。姣好的容颜、健美的身材、明明靠颜值吃饭的女星决定来到意大利南部西西里岛开始从零开始耕种葡萄园。酒庄的名字是Sangue d’oro，意大利语的意思是金色的血、源于西西里的近乎金色的明艳阳光。Carole Bouquet，成为了一个来自西西里大区（Sicilia）特拉帕尼省（Trapani）潘泰莱里亚（Pantelleria）的酒庄庄主。潘泰莱里亚（Pantelleria）是地中海西西里海峡中的一个岛屿。
Carole Bouquet, a French actress and model, since her debut in 1977, has appeared in more than 60 movies and TV shows. In 1981, she was chosen as a “bond girl” in the 007 film, “Top Secret”, singled out as one of the top beauties from around the world. Her appearance, sexy figure and great acting skills put her in the position to be able to live the good life, but instead she decided to come to Sicily, in southern Italy and start planting vineyards from scratch. The name of the winery is Sangue d’oro, which means “golden blood” in Italian, originated from the almost golden bright Sicilian sunshine. Carole Bouquet hence became a proud winery owner in Pantelleria, in the province of Trapani in Sicilia. Pantelleria is an island in the Mediterranean Strait of Sicily.
The bright sun in Sicily is like a dream for many people. How about building vineyards and crafting wines here? It sounds very poetic, doesn’t it? It is easy to imagine yet extremely difficult to implement. However, the call of the land brought this actress to this barren place to establish vineyards. This woman who’s smile will make you feel that you can do no wrong, and at the same time, she would make a wine that can make you feel that the world is a better place. The golden sun covered this woman who already had the golden aura of a heroine, but once all was said and done, all the hardships of farming vanished after she tasted a glass of her Sangue d’oro sweet wine.
Establishing vineyards is not a simple job. Many winemakers have the ultimate dream of opening a winery. In the end, few people can actually makes this dream come true. It takes a lot of capital as well as devotion, plenty of experience and courage. You may say: the movie queen has capital, it’s easier for her. But consider that some modern people consider making their own meal hard work; therefore, returning to a field day after day to take on hard labor seems unthinkable. It is true, agriculture is not an easy business to be in, nonetheless, this movie queen returned to the countryside to take on her goal, proving that extraordinary happiness can be obtained after hard work.
The call from the land can be very enticing especially as we are now mostly working from home these days, chained to a computer by an invisible chain. I just went to the farm next to my home and took a walk through it. Walking in the countryside, there is a true feeling of connection with the earth, every step brings a sense of happiness. Nature gives us life and vitality, strength and courage, and gives us all primitive but true wisdom. This is the call of the vineyard. I often think about what I want to achieve in my life. When I die, I want to leave something to the world, a legacy. A winemaker is a profession that can bring moments of happiness to oneself as well as to the world. And one day, I will return to my faith and become a winemaker.
