Goatboy Selections


We’re so excited to taste you on Goatboy Selections’ newest arrivals! Who makes the wine on your dinner table is essential, but who imports your wine, and sends it from abroad and delivers it to your dinner table, is also of utmost importance! Flip the wine bottle around and enter Goatboy Selections and the sketch of a cherubic goat slinging wine through the heavens. Passionate about real wine, with a focus on small production and natural winemaking methods, Byron Bates launched Goatboy Selections 20 years after getting into natural wines while working with Jonathan Nossiter at another New York based wine importing company. (Jonathan Nossiter is documentarian extraordinaire; curl up one autumn rainy weekend with a bottle of Gamay and watch Natural Resistance and Mondovino.) Byron aims to feature a portfolio of vins naturel reflecting the real wine culture in France. On Saturday, come try the following French wines, distributed in Massachusetts by the company Cafe Europa. Goatboy rocks! (Learn more about importer-based shopping in this helpful Bon Appetit article.)
