Perfectly made wines can often seem smooth and soon bore us. So, here is our range of Wabi-Sabi wines: Wines with a certain roughness, wines with an edge.
In traditional Japanese aesthetics, Wabi-sabi (侘寂) is a world view centered on the acceptance of transience and imperfection. The aesthetic is sometimes described as one of beauty that is „imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete“. It is a concept derived from the Buddhist teaching of the three marks of existence (三法印 sanbōin), specifically impermanence (無常 mujō), suffering (苦 ku) and emptiness or absence of self-nature (空 kū).
Characteristics of the wabi-sabi aesthetic include asymmetry, roughness, simplicity, economy, austerity, modesty, intimacy, and appreciation of the ingenuous integrity of natural objects and processes.
In today’s Japan, the meaning of wabi-sabi is often condensed to „wisdom in natural simplicity.“
