Spring Wine Club Offer: Natural Wine from Goatboy Selections

Do you ever look at the back of a bottle of wine? If the wine is imported, it’s there you’ll find the label bearing the importer’s name. Importers are the people in the trenches who establish relationships with the winemakers and painstakingly select each wine to bring into the US. Average wine consumers tend to overlook the role of the importer, which is a shame because of how much passion, time, and work are involved in bringing these wines from thousands of miles away to your dinner table.

Perhaps you have a favorite importer, like Kermit Lynch, Louis-Dressner, or Rosenthal. Many of us have importers that we prefer, and selecting an unfamiliar wine from a tried-and-true importer is a great way to discover something new that will suit your taste. For example, I know that if I reach for a bottle with the Goatboy Selections label on the back that I’m getting an authentic natural wine – complex and soulful, unadulterated, organically farmed, and made with minimal or no sulfur.

Goatboy Selections is curated by Byron Bates, a NYC-based wine consultant and sommelier who created legendary natural wine lists at several famous restaurants before “natural wine” was a household name like it is today. During his career, he forged relationships with some of the coolest and most avant-garde producers in France, which eventually got him hired by importer T. Edward Wines to curate natural wine for their book.

Our next wine club shipment features a selection of incredible natural wines curated by Goatboy Selections especially for T. Edward Wines. Join the wine club today to secure your collection. In addition to an awesome box of wine, you’ll also receive a full-color 28-page booklet explaining each wine in detail, along with food pairing suggestions and tasting notes. See the full list of wines below.
