    How Natural Wine Lost Its Hippie Reputation and Became a Wine-List Must-Have

    For LCD Soundsystem’s James Murphy, a fascination with natural wine began after drinking a bottle of Frank Cornelissen MunJebel Bianco 3. As he told the Times this week, it “was just so crazy … In my memory there were leaves and twigs floating in it … It was absolutely mind-blowing.”

Our special thanks to Mr. Michael Yurch and his Bluest Sky Group for the wonderful job they did on the Vinkara USA project. We appreciate the information and advice you have provided during the process of finding the right importer/distributer for our wines in America. On behalf of the Vinkara winery I express genuine thanks for all your professional support.
