March 2021 | 3 Bottle Club
Welcome to the March 3 Bottle Club from MYSA Natural Wine!
A note from our founder:
Welcome to the March 3-pack mixed club! I'm very excited about this mix because we have LOTS of female producers this month as well as a wine you can only find via us!
You can check out the videos and wine profiles for more information on each bottle, but I wanted to mention that though this month may look like two oranges and one red, Deep Cuts is actually a hard pressed white wine, so it will drink like a white and doesn't have any tannin.
Enjoy these lovely wines and let us know what you think about the new profiles

From another lovely women winemaker! Hand-harvested grapes undergo a wild fermentation in stainless steel after 4 days of maceration. Followed by being blended and aged in French Oak for 4 months and in American Oak for 3 years. This red is full of forest red fruit on the nose. Fresh with red fruit on the palate almost similar to a berry pie, along with hints of vanilla. A easy drinker to be drunk within the next couple of years. It's great alone but so yummy with tapas, pork chops, or roasted chicken.
Pairings: Pork, Beef, Pasta
Serving Temperature: 50°-55°
About Mesquida Mora
Bàrbara Mesquida Mora established the groundbreaking Mesquida Mora winery in Mallorca in 2012…
near the town of Porreres, producing wines in the DO Plà i Llevant and VdlT Mallorca designations in the southern and eastern areas of the island. Bàrbara’s wines form a rich mosaic recalling the diversity of Mallorca varieties while also representing the history of her pioneering winemaking family, with her own unique futuristic vision.
Upon leaving behind the winery created by her pioneering great-grandfather in 1945 in Porreres, Bàrbara started her project from scratch with historic vineyards inherited from her mother. Previously, Bàrbara managed the family winery for eight years, from 2004 until 2012, and was one of Spain’s first Demeter biodynamic certifications in 2007. Bàrbara has not only been a passionate practitioner of organic and biodynamic viticulture for more than two decades; she has also introduced a regenerative agriculture approach through encouraging biodiversity within her estate vineyards. Prior to her winemaking career, Bàrbara studied Medieval literature and Catalan language in Barcelona. Comfortably multilingual culture, art, and language are like air and water for her, informing every aspect of her work. Bàrbara is among the vanguard of a wave of young producers recuperating and contributing to the unique cultural and viticultural matrix of traditional Mallorcan agriculture. - De Maison

A special wine from Marigny for our partnership with Eater Wine Club! This is a blend of several white grapes with a few of them having very deep pressings, bringing some great intensity to this white wine that makes it almost feel orange! Aromas of citrus, yellow apple, and Meyer lemon. On the palate it's zippy! A ton of acidity that is very balanced. Deep stone fruit, peach and pineapple, and tart lemon. Have by itself or with appetizers such as grilled shrimp, or bacon wrapped scallops.
Pairings: Appetizers, Grilled Shrimp, Chicken
Serving Temperature: 48°-52°
About The Marigny
"The Marigny is a small winery that’s big on fun. Our vineyards are managed sustainably and organically by a crew that you can count on your fingers. Each fall myself, and maybe one other person, take a year's worth of farming and process it without any additives or additions.
We believe great wines don’t have to be saved. So go ahead, open these while you’re cooking dinner, during the game or just because you feel like it. We’re here for ya when your day needs a little extra brightness and we care a lot about people having a good time.
Cheers, Andy Young"
Nemea - Greece
From the #1 most produced white grape in Greece, Assyrtiko. Spends 4 days on the skins followed by 12 days of indigenous fermentation in stainless steel tanks. Lightly golden in color with aromas of overripe lemon, honey, and herbs. Heavy on the mouth with similar notes to the nose. Structured and round on the palate. Perfect with grilled seafood, Mediterranean platter, or even a lighter roasted chicken meal. Very delicious!
Pairings: Oysters, Shellfish, Feta Salad
Serving Temperature: 48°- 52°
Anna Halkia is a small organic female grower and winemaker in Nemea, the largest winemaking region of Greece and home to the Agiorgitiko grape (which is the most planted red Greek grape).
Anna grew up in Australia with her immigrant parents, and moved back to Nemea as an adult, to start her family with her husband. Her consciousness and care for her family had led her to organic viticulture, which, she felt, would shine more if she turned into her own wine, instead of selling her organic grapes as raw material and mixed with inferior quality grapes. In the early 2000s, she decided to create a basic winemaking facility in the back of her house, where the family’s vineyards are located. The lack of investment forced her to rely on basic technology and natural winemaking. There was no surplus of funds to buy lab yeasts and enzymes, which a consulting oenologist had advised her to do, so necessity turned her to wild fermentation and lo-fi winemaking. Her wines, naturally, earned a following, due to their raw expression of the organic fruit. Anna also applied and received her organic certification, to prove part of the work that goes into the vineyard.
Today Anna is still selling locally the small-batch wines she makes from Agiorgitiko, Assyrtiko, and Roditis grapes, following the same methods she was forced to adopt, and which helped them stand out from the norm. - Eklektikon
