"Meet our Employee"
If you have visited the Tasting Room during the week, you probably have met Laurie and her welcoming personality. We asked her some questions on our monthly spotlight.
What is your favorite part about your job?
I would have to say the wonderful people that I work with, and the people I get to meet every day in the Brian Carter Cellars Tasting Room. I also love learning about wine.
What attracted you to work for Brian Carter Cellars?
I have been a fan of Brian Carter’s wines for years, so the decision was easy. It’s a great place to work and be part of the Brian Carter family. It brings you closer to the wine you love.
What is your favorite Brian Carter Wine?
I love the Takahashi, I am a huge Malbec fan and the balance of the Takahashi wine is perfect. It feels very rich and indulgent, plus it’s just yummy.
What would people be surprised to know about you?
I am the ‘guardian ad litem’ for foster children who are very special to me. I love to bike around Kirkland, and love to be in the sun. Every year I escape to Southern California for a month just to avoid the rain.
Tell us a little bit about your family?
I have three grown children and four grandchildren. We are a very lucky family, to be able to live close together here in Washington. I was born and raised here- it’s home.
