November 2022 | 3 Bottle Club
Welcome to the November 3 Bottle Club from MYSA Natural Wine!
A note from our founder:
We are in full-blown cozy MYSA season! With that in mind we have all kinds of wines to enjoy by the fire and/or with friends and family during all of the upcoming holidays. If you're doing Friends/Thanksgiving I'd specifically set aside the Anjou Blanc and Zin for the occasion! Don't sleep on the Cru Boy, as it's a GREAT time to drink this ramato orange.

About Pascal Biotteau
Combining the fresh acidity of the “Anjou Blanc’s” limestone with the flinty, mouth-coating richness of the “Anjou Noir,” the estate’s classic style offers a beautiful composite picture of Anjou as a whole, with honeyed notes of apricot giving way to a tangy mineral finish. The sort of classic “bistro wine” wine that you’d dream of drinking on a warm summer evening in Paris, it’s fantastic for fresh goat-cheese salads, fish in cream sauce, or even herb-roasted pork or chicken. Just don’t serve it too cold, according to Mary, to avoid masking its full depth and aromatic complexity. - Mary Taylor Wine

About Hollow Wines
Quinn Hobbs Hollow Wines is a newish natty California project from Woodson “Quinn” Hobbs, who grew up in Portola Valley, with his Aussie wife Alison and their daughter Mina. They currently live in LA but make the wine in Gilroy, sourcing fruit from organic vineyards up and down the state. Quinn not only has the Midas touch with wine, he's also getting his PhD in global leadership and change so that he can help other wineries produce low-carbon wine that’s better for the planet and the people. To that end, Hobbs requires fruit sources to be organic. If you use Roundup anywhere on the property, it's a firm no-go. “Roundup is a disaster for this planet,” he says. He considers himself a practitioner of No B.S. winemaking, which he equates to minimal intervention and using wild yeast with no adds other than some sulfur. Some might call it natural winemaking, but he prefers to say “simply good wine making.”
