Meet the team: Pedro

Where I Come From…

An idyllic British village called Hartley Wintney in South East England, with its 13th Century church, 3 quaint duck ponds and a 250-year-old cricket club I had a quintessentially English upbringing – that’s why I’m called Pedro, obviously.

What I Do At LVG…

I’m a Booze Consultant – helping with everything from tastings and events to client support (email, phone, training) and spreading the LVG love far and wide across the Alps.

My Background…

I’m a wine guy at the core with 10 years in the industry so it’s hard work to prise a glass of the good stuff out of my hands. I love tastings, discovering new wines and musing over all things wine and food related. I am also developing my own wine and travel blog to share my passion and hopefully inspire others to explore the wine world further.

My goal at LVG…

To make friends and connect with customers and colleagues alike, find the right wine for each customer whilst making it as much fun as possible.

What I Enjoy Most About the Job So Far…

The versatility of the role is great and everyone I work with is lovely. I am having so much fun at tastings, meeting new people and supping my way through our extensive range of wines.

What I Get Up to Away from Work…

You can’t have good wine without great food, so I’m always trying to improve my culinary capabilities. To this end I have recently invested in the French cooking bible Larousse Gastronomique and so far, my most successful attempt was a seven-hour Pot Au Feu. I also love reading, hill walking and as I’m in the Alps for a while it seems only sensible to give skiing a bit of a go.

My Perfect Evening…

A fine wine evening with friends…Champagne, followed by a white Burgundy, a Brunello di Montalcino and a glass of Tokaji to finish. All paired perfectly with great food and great company.

The Best Wines in The World Are…

Well this is a tricky one…I believe it all comes down to your situation; where you are, who you’re with, the weather, the food…I think every wine has its place and they can all be enjoyed on some level or another. Having said it, for me, it must be Bâtard-Montrachet closely followed by Mendoza Malbec.
