Ambaristo is a sweet little fruit bomb. I’d say that it is a gorgeous little number but that will not do it justice. The resident winemaker Sigrid Salucop describes it better. In one article that she wrote for the wines, Salucop said, “Of the many delightful transformations that Ambaristo has gone through, the happiest was the moment that the company decided on providing balance and nuance.” This may be a sweet wine but it is not jammy and will never be overly sweet for those who have a sweet tooth.
It also boasts a lighter body compared to the Basi Maria, one of the brand’s best sellers. Ambaristo, as Salucop puts it, “still has some boisterousness left in its body” and that is a good thing. A very good thing if I may say so myself because to me, noisy wines are best for celebrations and for moments when you just want a little bit of happiness. Another good thing about this wine is the fact that it contains all the health benefits that other reds offer.

Basi Puro may be the first wine from Basi del Diablo but Basidina inspired every other bottle that followed. This crisp white wine is named after the winemakers’ mother Dina. This is a beautiful concoction made from sugarcane and chardonnay. The winemakers say that the wine’s citrus notes and its bouquet remind them of the rainy days they spent with their mother. Dina passed away in 2010.

I thought of her and my very few memories of her while making Basi Maria. I knew that the wine had to be red. It had to have an intense red colour with enough purplish hues to give it depth. It had to have a delicate fragrance and an elegance characterised by complexity. It had to have a full body and tannins that would deliver a subtle spiciness when eaten with rich, creamy dishes. It is difficult to plan all these but after years of testing, we finally found the sweet spot for the Basi Maria brand.
Basi Maria is intense with an almost forgettable bitter finish. It offers a polished taste of the Old World with a high alcohol content that makes it generous in the mouth. Like my grandmother, it is not overbearing and its structure makes up for its lack of sweetness. It is perfect for rainy days or when it is cold. It is my ode to her and to all the afternoons that she spent with me and my sister.

In Ilocos Norte, basi is ordinary and often ignored. A simple table wine enjoyed by farmers and fisherfolk alike, it is the very embodiment of Ilocano tradition. Basi Puro is a refined version of the basi that you will find in Ilocano markets.

De La Bodega is a creamy semi-frizzante. It is best paired with food that have opposing profiles. Bitter chocolate and spicy food, for example, would bring out its complexity. It also pairs well with lemon meringue pie and other desserts with a slight tartness.

(Description from “Meet Our Soulful Pink Wine”)
Virginia Blush is often described as a simple rosé but underneath its inviting crystal pink hue is a cheerful wine meant to be versatile rather than just drank for or with dessert. It is an indispensable ally for dinner parties, especially when one is at a loss on what wine to serve. It does pair well with pastries and cakes but can hold its own when drank with pasta topped with rich, creamy sauce. Interestingly, this sugarcane and grape concoction also goes well with red sauce.
