Where to Buy Natural Wine
Finding Natural Wine Isn't Always Easy!
While the amount of natural wines is increasing across the US, it's still quite difficult to find and even if you've found it, can be difficult to know if it's natural or not! Luckily, there are some great resources out there that can help you find great places that serve or sell natural wine and there are more online stores and clubs (like ours!) where you can have them delivered to your house. Below we've broken out all the places and ways you can find natural wine around you!
In Stores, Wine Bars, and Restaurants
While not every city will have natural wine stores, larger cities around the US likely have store that caries at least a couple of them! Being from Oklahoma, Holly has successfully found 2 stores 1 restaurant and 1 wine bar that have them on their lists so far and expects that the keep growing! So don't despair if you're in the heartland, you can likely find something with the right amount of sleuthing :)
How to know if a location has natural wine:
The easiest way to know if somewhere has natural wines is usually just to ask. You can call obviously, but we've also found a lot of success in following our local stores and restaurants on Instagram because sometimes they'll post about new wines in. You can also avoid actually talking to someone by just Insta messaging them too!
