Natural wine in New York metropolitan area

Herebelow are natural wines that I recommend and how to buy them in New York metropolitan area.

Here is my selection of natural wines: sulphur dioxide (SO2) often is not added during winemaking or bottling. Only a few bottles may contain sulfites — in very small quantities — around 10 mg per liter.

The establishments must sell by the bottle (without asking you to purchase anything else, even if they are bistros). []
