June 2021 | 3 Bottle Club
Welcome to the June 3 Bottle Club from MYSA Natural Wine!
A note from our founder:
Welcome to the June 2021 club! We have a really fun mix of wines for you this month AND an amazing exclusive collab with Swick wines for our first MYSA wine called Darla. Our little mascot Dalahäst is named Darla so our lovely orange Riesling got the name in honor of her. In addition, we have some rose and reds that I've been loving for the summer and will not disappoint at your next outdoor gathering. The MaryJane is one of my favorite wines of the year as well so make sure you watch the video on that one!

Itata Valley - ChileDescription:
From grapes grown on 200-year old ungrafted and unirrigated vines in Chile. A bit salmon in color. On the nose, a bit savory with some baking spices like oregano and strawberry roll-up. Tart with great acidic structure on the palate. Flavors of blueberries and plum. Really nice long finish. Medium in body, high acidity and very drinkable. Order pizza to pair with this wine, or maybe try some chicken tendies out on the lawn. Grilled salmon with asparagus could also be an option!
Pairings: Fish, Tapas, Grilled Vegetables
Serving Temperature: 48°- 52°
About Onda Brava
Since 2013, I’ve been fortunate to spend a significant amount of time producing wines in Itata, Chile. Together with Leo Erazo and our friends and families, we’ve been exploring and furthering our understanding of the ancient own-rooted and unirrigated bush vines of the Itata hills. The resulting projects are Onda Brava and A Los Viñateros Bravos. - Onda Brava
Strawberry starbursts, blueberry, tart red cherry, and cotton candy on the nose. Bright acidity up front, but with a fruity, fleshed out mid palate. Notes of juciy berry such as cherry, cranberry, herbs, gushers, and candied grape. Definitely slightly chill this one! Refreshing minerality on the back palate and a long, textured finish. Pair with a mezze platter, roasted chicken, grilled meats, junk foods, pizza, or chicken nuggets!
Pairings: Cheese Plate, Grilled Meat, Roasted Peppers
Serving Temperature: 48°- 52°
About Emme Wines
My name is Rosalind, and I farm grapes organically and make wine without additives.
I work within a likeminded community of grape-growers and winemakers in Northern California. 2018 marked the first year I set out to create something of my own, albeit with the welcome support of the talented people who surround me.
Wine, at its core, is about community. Countless hands are involved in every glass you drink – the growers who planted cuttings three generations ago; the field workers who prune the vines in winter, tend them throughout the year and pick the grapes come autumn; the winemakers and interns who footstomp those grapes, forklift bins of fermenting fruit from tank to press, and fill barrels with wine to rest before bottling; and the distributors, restaurateurs, and sommeliers who help bring that bottle to you. An incredible amount of labor and love goes into filling a glass with wine, and I am constantly reminded of and grateful for the community who makes all of it possible. I could not do this alone, nor would I want to.
Similarly, at the end of the day, wine should be enjoyed with your own community of friends and family. I aim to make fresh, bright wines that taste good, encourage thoughtful discussion, and ultimately bring people together.

About Swick Wines
Joe Swick is a 5th generation Oregonian winemaker who captures the true taste of the Pacific Northwest through his wines. Joe sources his grapes from organic, biodynamic and sustainable vineyards in Oregon and Washington. After years of traveling and harvesting in various pockets of the world, such as Piedmont, Portugal, and Tasmania, Joe returned to Oregon to start his very own label in 2013. He embraces the minimal approach when making his wines such as using native yeasts, aging in old barrels and adding minimal sulphur during bottling—only when absolutely necessary. While Joe started out with a focus on making Oregon Pinot Noir, he now has explored many other grape varietals and experiments with different techniques during élevage. - Swick Wines
