Welcome to the September 12 Bottle Club from MYSA Natural Wine! 

A note from our founder:  

Happy Spooky Month! There's never been a more appropriate time to drink orange wines and we've been waiting literally 8 months for Stay Brave to arrive, so perfect timing! We're ending rose season (not that we think you can't have it all the time!) with 2 liter bottles that are perfect for your Halloween party. You also have some food friendly reds/whites that are a great medium bodied transition into fall!

About Zillamina

Very little rainfall and plenty of sunlight (2,500 – 3,000 hours of sun per year, similar to Florida or California) are challenging yet perfect conditions for getting wines with an intense color and high aromatic potential, especially from the Monastrell variety that Zillamina red and rosé are made of.

About Villalobos

Villalobos Winemaker

In addition to the wild wines, they source organic fruit from two farmers. All the negoce wines are 100% stainless, native yeast, unrefined, unfiltered expressions of Pacific terroirs. These are much lighter, fresher examples of Chilean viticulture than we are used to tasting, but ones that still express a clear sense of place. That’s a nice balance.  - Selection de la Vina

About Haut Lavigne

Haut Lavigne Winemaker

Nadia Lusseau created Château Haut Lavigne in 2002 when she took over 8.5-hectares of vineyards in the Cotes de Duras. The vineyard is made up of 4-hectares of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, plus 4.5-hectares of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. The Cotes de Duras is located approximately 100 kilometers from the Atlantic and benefits from the ocean air while enjoying less rain, therefore more sunshine, than appellations further to the west. Nadia’s viticultural approach results in top-quality fruit and her winemaking allows for a true expression of terroir. She has been farming organically since 2005 all of her vines were certified organic in 2006. Nadia Lusseau represents a younger generation of women winemakers working in France whose informed approach and deft touch are yielding outstanding results.

About Estacion Yumbel

Estacion Yumbel Winemaker

Mauricio dry farms 4 hectares of Pais, Malbec, and Moscatel, all of which bush vines planted on the volcanic soils of Secano Interior de Yumbel. He barely even uses copper in the vineyards and the wines are all zero zero and completely unfined and unfiltered. He produces somewhere around 18,000 total bottles a year where Pipeño accounts for just over half of that.

Oh yeah! If he weren’t already badass enough, in his spare time he also trains and races Arabian horses owning three or four himself! - Selections de le Viña

About Vignereuse


Vignereuse Winemaker

In 2012, Marine made her way to Gaillac to work and learn under the guidance of her friends, the legendary Plageoles family. In 2014, she found 5 hectares of vines in Andillac and the Vignereuse project was launched. Her first vintage delivers precise, flavorful and refined wines that speak both to the quality of the Gaillac as one of the most underrated AOP in France, and to her skills as a young winemaker.  -Jenny & François

About Barranco Oscuro

Barranco Oscuro Winemaker
Manuel Valenzuela received the first ‘Organic’ certification in Spain. He has since declined the certification, which is not rigorous enough for his taste, but he and his son Lorenzo continue their work in the vines, 1,300 m and 10 km from the sea. The climate is very dry and breezy, the soil is made of schist and clay and is very poor. Their work in the vineyards and cellar is careful and non-interventionist. Most of the wines are vinified without sulphur.

About Wightman and Sons


Adorning the Wightman & Sons logo, you will find a hand trowel — an homage to Andrew Wightman’s longtime experience as a builder. Also featured is a bush vine, representing Andrew’s latest venture operating a 24 hectare farm in the Swartland. The farm, called Môrelig, is a special place consisting of 7 different varietals, all organically farmed. The farm has also caught the attention of many Swartland producers, as Andrew’s fruit is highly sought after by the regions top winemaking talents for its quality and expression. While most of the fruit from the farm is sold (to the likes of Craig Hawkins, Eben Sadie, Jurgen Gouws to name a few), Andrew, along with his son Brandon, released their first own-labeled wines in 2015 and only produce around 900 cases per year. We are thrilled to bring these small production, exceptionally-valued, natural wines to the US.

About Where's Linus

Where's Linus Winemaker

Born in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, Chris Christensen never thought winemaking was an actual career path for people who weren’t born into a winery or vineyard until he went on a wine-tasting trip to Sonoma during his Junior year at Stanford. Although originally fueled – as Chris himself admits – by the idea that knowing a thing or two about wine might impress girls, Chris’ curiosity about wine quickly turned into a real passion.

About Frug

Frug Rosé Buy Online

The name Frug comes from a 1960s dance, which is very shake-your-hips and vibrant like the wine itself, fitting also with the colorful label designed by our Jenny Lefcourt’s brother in cooperation and her husband. It was coined by Toni Silver, an artist and Austrian wine promoter who also connected us with the winery: “My brain always bounces around from the present back to the mid-20th century, as I am a retro kind of gal, so I just started thinking of party-drinking-dancing and started to remember some of the crazy 60’s dances – the Twist, Mashed Potato, the Frug!” Well, there you go: we bet this Austrian liter trio will make you dance as well. - Jenny & Francois
