Rod Easthope's Story
"A short note to say hello from the other side of the world and how excited I am to be teaming up with Nakedwines.com. It’s been a lifelong dream to be my own boss, and the Angel funding model is finally making that dream come true, so thank you.
I’ve had a fantastic seven years at Craggy Range, my current employer, but I can’t wait to get started on this new project, and produce an exclusive range of wines under my own name – at scale. It’s liberating to make wines directly for customers, rather than winery shareholders, importers, distributors etc - who remove or blur the connection between the winegrower and the people who actually drink it!
You’ll be pleased to hear I know where all the best grapes are hiding, and it’s great to have the backing to put them to best use and share them with you – so watch this space! "
