About The Winemaker
"After many years working in food and wine in New York City, notably as co-founder and chef of ICI in Fort Greene, Laurent decamped to the Loire Valley to begin a new life among the vines making the wines he had always loved. At first he began working in the vineyard for both Noella Morantin and Clos Roche Blanche to learn the ropes, and began experimenting with his own wine in the cellar. After Noella purchased a few hectares of vines elsewhere, she transferred a portion of the parcel she had been renting within the clos to Laurent so he could began vinifying his own wine in earnest."
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!
