I’m Brian and in the seemingly apocalyptic Spring of 2020, a shipment of wine from Nacho Gonzalez of La Perdida arrived on the south coast of Cork in Ireland. With that, Brian’s Wines was born. A merchant of natural wines, the business intends to honour the uncompromising commitment made by the winemakers I work with to farm organically and add nothing to their wines. For some, these two elements define so-called natural wines. Not everyone agrees. What is certain is the personality and verve of wines made this way; the unbridled breadth of flavour and aroma that can have Damascene consequences for the drinker. At least that was my experience!
