Hi everyone, my name is Laura, I am the Business Development Manager at Basco and the resident wine enthusiast, achieving Diploma in the Wines & Spirits education trust, basically making me a bit of a wine geek.  Having spent 15 years in the wine trade and have been lucky enough to travel all over the world visiting different countries and collecting many many different wines from my travels I wanted to share my experiences and wines I drink. I am often asked what is my favourite wine, I answer that I like all wines, the occasion plays a huge part in this and the people I am sharing the wine with and the food accompanying it.  Wine is constantly developing and changing and I was once told by a wine maker from Lebanon that a bottle of wine is the only living thing from that year that we can drink that can tell us what the climate was like.  He told me this while we were trying a bottle of wine from the 1960s.  I really liked this idea and how we were tasting something from the 1960s and the wine could still tell us so much about how it all began. Wine can taste so different depending on the food we have with it and this I believe is key to enjoying all wines.  I am lucky enough to take part in the judging at the International Wine Challenge which is an amazing opportunity to meet the experts within the wine trade and try some really stunning wines.  This blog will take you through the wines in the Basco portfolio, Spanish wines we try and my personal adventures through wine tasting and exploring new wines and new wine & food matches.
