Things People Like about Natural Wines: Part 6- Sophie Barrett of Chambers Street Wines

Posted · Add Comment

Our company began 12 years ago with Jenny and François’s dream to share their passion of a style of wines they fell in love with while living in France. That passion has spread gradually over the years with thanks in no small part to other importers like Joe Dressner, and today there are a whole host of natural wine lovers: customers, sommeliers, wine store owners, and an ever-growing list of importers, who love these wines as much as we do. With all the attention Natural Wines are getting in the media lately, we thought it would be fun to do a series where people talk about all the things they love about these wines.

Follow the whole series:

Part 1: Joe Campanale of Anfora

Part 2: Levi Dalton

Part 3: Pascaline Lepeltier of Rouge Tomate

Part 4: Fifi of the Ten Bells

Part 5: Ben Wood of 67 Wine

For today’s installment, we chatted with Sophie, the manager at Chambers Street Wines, a place that some have called the greatest wine store in North America. For natural wine fans, Chambers Street is certainly a temple at which we all worship, so we were really eager to hear what Sophie likes about natural wine. Sophie is also a very fine blogger in her own right, as you can see in the recent post she wrote about her visit to Champagne in, The Brainchildren of Emmanuel Lassaigne. Check out what she had to say in the interview, and make sure you follow her blog as well!
