When things open up after pandemic, go to a wine tasting of selected natural wines to discover if you like them at all, before investing in bottles. Or a good wine bar that carries them. If you don't like, pause. If you like, continue.
As usual, find a local store you like that has a good selection and knowledgeable sales people. Ask and take their advice.
If no local store, and your locale permits wine deliveries across state lines or borders, order from a winery or good wine merchant.
