Since Tony started out in 1969, Laithwaites Wine has always been about connecting you, the customer at home to the winemaker in the vineyard.
Obviously, taking you with us on buying trips would be impossible, so we take lots of photos and try to describe the places we visit instead. And you can meet the producers at our tasting events up and down the country. Yet you seldom catch a glimpse of life here at Laithwaites Wine HQ.
But that’s all about to change …
The BRAND NEW Laithwaites Wine blog welcomes you into our world of wine. For instance, have you ever wondered how we source your favourite wines? Pictures, videos and trip reports will give you exclusive insight into the busy life of a Laithwaites wine buyer.
You’ll see what we get up to here at HQ, from charity fundraising events to our legendary staff parties. You’ll receive regular updates from our wine shops … and don’t worry if you’re nowhere near a store, our events team will let you know when they’re coming to a venue near you! And if you’ve just been to a tasting, keep an eye out for your picture on the blog.
And that’s not all! You’ll also find the latest wine stories to hit the headlines, guest postings from wine luminaries, expert wine reviews from our advisors … even the occasional musing from the boss!
So there you go … our blog. We hope you like it. Let us know what you think … and if there’s something else you’d like to see, be sure to let us know.
