About the Winemaker
Laila Maghathe is a new producer in the Mersel portfolio. Originally from the US, and currently making wine in Lebanon. She's been working in wine production for about 7 vintages and settled in Lebanon making "Love Letter" since 2021. She strongly believes in natural wine and making wine without any additives. All the wines produced are organic, fermented naturally, have zero sulphur added and are meant to be expressive and alive.
US Natural Wine ships once a week, every Wednesday. All orders should be placed by Tuesday at 10am in order to be picked up from our distributors and out on Wednesday's delivery truck.
Shipping cost is 18 bucks a box (up to 12 bottles) so we highly encourage picking up more than 1 bottle for the best value!
At $18, we have some of the most competitive shipping rates compared to other low-intervention wine e-commerce, which can range from $20-$25 a box. Ultimately, we eat the cost of shipping more often than not because wine can be damn heavy. As a small business, we are simply unable to offer free shipping. We can't thank you enough for your understanding!
