- Stephen is no stranger to gold medals, but usually his prestigious employers are the only ones in the limelight.
- We offered Stephen some Angel funding to set aside some of his favorites wines and vineyards to make a special range with his name on the label just for us, and he jumped at the opportunity.
- If you like underdogs, Stephen's your man. He will find the over-looked and under-appreciated and he will take precious care to make sure they grow into big, beautiful wines that deserve more attention.
Stephen Millier's Story
Stephen Millier's Story
"I have been a winemaker for 37 years and counting!
At college I became intrigued by the craftsmanship aspects of winemaking. Knowing that we have 30 or 40 chances in a lifetime to try and get it right. Understanding that we can only control a few aspects of our wines while the rest are given to us new each year.
I love starting fresh with every harvest with new grapes, new wine and new hope. That is a shared feeling between myself and the different grape growers that I make wine from their grapes.
I really try to make each wine an accurate reflection of what was special with the vineyards that year! Really I try to make honest wines that are easy to appreciate while maintaining varietal integrity for the region they originate from. They are drinking friendly.
I’m hoping you really enjoy the wines I have created just for Naked Angels, it has been a fantastic opportunity to create something of my very own and I am proud to share it with you!
I am very interested in getting some feedback on the wines, so don’t be shy! Come back and tell me what you think so I can start working on the new vintage with a better idea of what you all like."
Life is too short to drink cheap wine
I live in Southern Oregon wine country with my husband and two cats. We found Naked Wines through my sister-in-law who has been telling me about the "club" for months. We're looking forward to getting our first 1/2 case and checking out the wines. We are into bold and complex reds - Zin, Syrah, Tempranillo and Malbec.
Live each day as if it were your last and enhance every dinner with a glass of wine. Cheers!
I am a computer geek working for a large consumer products company. I have always liked wine to a certain extent since I was old enough to drink it (or my parents would let me try it). However, I was seriously bit by the wine bug a number of years ago and began trying everything! I now have a cellar with over 200 bottles (and really shouldn't according to my wife, as I am the only one in the house that likes wine). Of course, it means I need to have more people over to share it with :). Bas vers le haut!
It's amazing how your tastebuds mature! I've gone from Boone's Farm to the best there is here at Naked Wines - all in less than 5 decades! During that time period, I've been a professional rider & trainer, an English/Social Studies teacher, a travel agent, a coordinator for a national business barter organization, a support staff and a trainer for a NYS government agency - and the owner of an equine video & photo company. I've lived/worked in NY, KY, TX, SC, OR - and back to NY. I've also started two groups: 1. Northeast State of Wine, so we in this area can share the fun! Please come join in - our wineries create deliciousness from grapes, apples, pears, berries...you name it! - and 2. Sharing Made Easy - LINKS.. - where wine-related info, either links or copied & pasted info (with credit, if appropriate) can be shared. This is to help others find info that is frequently discussed - until our techies (or NW corp) set up an efficient Search feature. No comments - just links/info.
