Yefim Bronfman’s pet name is Fima. And this name was now used for a Cabernet/Merlot Blend from Napa’s Kongsgaard Wine. In a Bloomberg interview the American pianist said  » I have to brag about something that’s much more important to me than anything else in my career. There is a wine named after me – Fimasaurus! » Apparently, when Bronfman plays for his winemaker, he gets paid in wine…

On the Kongsgaard Wine website the Bronfman Wine is presented like this: « Fima is a giant of the piano, and he plays with the explosive passion you find in this wine. One might think that the merlot would soften the cabernet, but the merlot on our mountain is at least as brooding and concentrated as the cabernet, and the 50/50 blend is a unique powerhouse. Chocolate, cassis and saddle leather lead the aromatic profile, and the dense wine makes a profound impression as the layers of dark fruit and fine tannin unfold on the finish. »
