"I was born in the heart of Valencia City, surrounded by buildings, a lot of cars and asphalt. No vineyards were around me. Because of this and also because I like wine I decided to go outside the city and to discover Spanish Vineyards. The rest is history!
After a period of training in Valencia and California I went back home and I began my work in La Viña, first as a manager for Quality and currently as a Technical Manager. La Vina is located in the charming village of Fuente La Higuera, literally “Fountain of The Fig Tree", some 100 km south of Valencia City on Spain’s Mediterranean coast.
Although I am the head winemaker in a huge winery, my personal passion is going into a pet project...to show that Valencia can make wines to compete with the best of Rioja.
What do I love about being a winemaker? Well, I get to drink lots of wine for free! And I get to work with something that makes life more enjoyable."

Angels are regular wine drinkers just like you - who help us crowd-fund talented independant winemakers in return for:
Put your name on the Angel waiting list today and we'll get busy finding the next Naked winemaker. And when we do, you'll get your wings.
At Naked Wines we define fine wines as wines that need more than one year from vine to table. This is a subject of very heated and earnest debate among wine enthusiasts, and every one of them seems to have their own definition. So we just picked the one that made the most sense to us!
In our humble opinion (and there are many who would disagree) fine wines are not NECESSARILY:

In September 2013, we launched a Fine Wine Bond where we raised £5 million to invest in the 'top-end' stuff.
So we're well armed to take on the fine wine market with a bang - and our range of fine wines will be increasing over the next few months / years!
The bond offer is now closed, but we might run another issue in the future if there's enough interest…
Here's a juicy little nugget of insider info…
When it comes to wine, a small step in price = a HUGE leap in quality and taste
By spending $11 - $15 for a bottle of wine, you're actually getting more than DOUBLE the quality of wine than a $8 - $10 bottle... pretty impressive huh?
Sound too good to be true? It's not. Here's how it works...
The first several bucks you pay for a bottle covers basics that don't make the wine taste any better (glass bottle, bottling, labeling, closure, etc). As the price of a bottle increases, more of your money goes towards the delicious juice in the bottle rather than dry goods, taxes, and other boring stuff that adds nothing to the taste.
So you get a LOT more bang for your buck
