Welcome to the March 3 Bottle Club from MYSA Natural Wine!
A note from our founder:
Spring is around the corner! (Unless you live in Western Mass like us and lost power in the snow storm, in which case we're still skiing lol!) We have a mix that feels like spring with a lighter red, a medium bodied white, and an aged orange that will make you go WOW! People say all the time you can't age natural wine and this wine is proof that that is some BS! I hope you enjoy!!

About Domaine Ribiera
Regis Pichon works 7.5 hecatares of vines on sloping shiste hills surrounding the small village of Aspiran in the Languedoc. He grows a range of grapes from Cinsault, Syrah and Grenache to Terette, Roussanne and Clairette . Before making wine, Regis worked as a sommelier in one of the world’s great cellars at La Tour d’Argent in Paris and at the equally renowned wine shop Hediard, where he met his wife Catherine. In 2005, Regis decided to move his family from the city to a tiny village and begin making wine. It wasn’t his background in the classics of Bordeaux or Burgundy that inspired him, but rather a bottle of Pierre Overnoy from Arbois in the Jura that opened his eyes to natural wine beauty.The wine was cleaner than he had thought a wine without sulphur wine could be and so much easier to drink than the extracted, conventional wines that he worked with daily as a sommelier. He knew that making wine rather than pouring it was his true path. Today Regis leases a small winery and shares space with David Caer, from Clos Mathélisse. They have their sights set, however, on co-owing a larger winery in the future. Regis ferments with naturally occurring yeasts and only adds small amounts of sulphur at bottling to his roughly 22,000 bottles a year. -Zev Rovine

About Bodegas Garay
His (Mario) organic vineyards are easy to spot amongst those of his neighbors. His wines represent the salty ocean influence of his calcareous soils. We only caught the tail end of the 2014 vintage so there’s not much wine to go round, but enough to preview what’s in store for the years to come. The wines flirt with an oxidative sherry style given the similarities in region and variety. Bleu spends 6 months in French oak, Red 6 months in American, and Negro Roto 1 year under flor. All wines unfortified, unfined, and unfiltered. We couldn’t be more excited to import these wines representing a region so close to us. - Selections de la Vina
