Bosman ‘Nature & Sun’
Steeped in history and tradition, the 8th generation Bosman Family Vineyards is one of South Africa’s oldest and most established wineries. Today they are committed to responsible, artisanal winemaking with a marked environmental and social impact (including Fairtrade accreditation). ‘Nature & Sun’ is an ode to the fine tension and clarity of naturally fermented, low-intervention Grenache.

Structure, yellow fruit, and a little sweetness all come together in this beautifully balanced expression of the Rheinhessen.
Cune Rioja Crianza Tinto

From the Blog: Chateau Goudichaud
This month, as part of our Serendipity Loves campaign, we’re featuring some of our old flames and new crushes. As one of our first winery partners, Chateau Goudichaud is firmly in the old flame category, and now going on 20 years of partnership, it seems like a good time to reflect back on how we got here and share more of the story with the world!

Get To Know the Team
Welcome Jordan Kennard, the newest addition to Serendipity National Imports! Jordan joins our small but mighty National team as the Marketing Insights & Project Coordinator.
Where are you from & what brought you to the wine industry? I was born and raised in Fort Worth, Texas. I’ve had a passion for wine since college— I never really thought I would work in the industry but once I did I fell in love.
What is your current favorite wine in our book? My favorite wine in our book would have to be either Left Coast White Pinot Noir or Viticcio Bolgheri.
What do you like to do when you’re not working? One of my favorite things to do outside to work is producing podcasts. I produce a couple different podcasts, and even have one about wine called Full Court Press by 94 Pours.
