Naked Winemaker

Richard Bruno

Sebastiani's made man now making wine in California's Central Coast

    • Richard Bruno is exactly what we love in a winemaker– the quiet achiever behind the scenes at some of the world's most famous wine brands. He's made wine for Francis Ford Coppola and Don Sebastiani, the latter of which was named Winery of the Year TWICE under his watch.
    • And in his 20 years making wine for famous wineries and earning them 90+ scores, he has traveled all up and down California's coastal wine regions. His experience and familiarity with the terrain allow him to sniff out the best-bang-for-buck pretty much anywhere in CA.
    • But launching your own wine brand is hard and expensive, so he's using Angel funding– and he's able to focus on winemaking, instead of wine-selling.
