April 2022 | 3 Bottle Club
Welcome to the April 3 Bottle Club from MYSA Natural Wine!
A note from our founder:
Spring is here and I feel so lucky to have this incredible collaboration with Limited Addition in your hands! Made from a fully female-led operation from vine to door with the vineyard run by an all female team, the wine made by Bree, sold via MYSA, and proceeds going to Kiss the Ground and women in wine scholarship. Beyond that, it's one of the best piquettes we've ever had!
Not to overshadow the other amazing wines we have this month, as we have one of the best Merlot's I've ever had as well as a rose that tastes of Spring itself and couldn't be more perfect for your Easter celebrations!

About Miles Garrett
I pay my crew between $15(starting) - $25 an hour and use the wwoof organization for work/trade labor. Wwoofers always say it’s the nicest place they’ve wwoofed (if that matters?!) They have wooden yurts to live in, loaner bicycles and a car, hot shower/bathrooms, WiFi and food included. In return they work for 4 hours a day.
I give Carla (my wife) a lot of credit for running my business (even though she’s not a big wine aficionado) because it wasn’t very smooth before she came online and became the business side of things. Also my harvest crew is led by Johanne Rapine, the awesome French lady who has come every year I’ve been making wine. All this to say its not a bro show at my winery. This year my oldest daughter Bella worked in the vineyard a bit as well, so it’s turning into more of a family affair. - Miles Garrett
Ça Grolleau'te - Jennifer Bariou & Thibaut Bodet
Loire Valley - FranceDescription:
Grolleau grapes harvested by hand in the Loire Valley are fermented spontaneously in neutral wood and then undergo malolactic fermentation. Grapefruit, cranberry, and other red fruit add a zesty tartness to the flavor. This is a delightful wine to drink with friends in the summer. Very vibrant with rhubarb and blood orange notes.
Pairings: Goat Cheese, Sushi, Salads
Serving Temperature: 45°- 50°
