- They're usually behind the scenes at your Angel-funded winery in Sonoma – now it's time for your talented cellar crew to step into the spotlight.
- So who's in the crew? José, Tim, Raul, Fabian, Andrew, Chuck and Jorge - the incredibly talented guys who manage every tank and barrel of wine you make possible.
- And they're the perfect guys for the job. These are the guys who handle hundreds of wines each year, making sure they're the best they can be. Now they're teaming up to craft their own special blend!
Cellar Crew Team's Story
The cellar team first came together to make you an exclusive red – with a special purpose...
It was the night of October 8th, 2017 that 4 members of your cellar crew – Jorge Aleman Reyes, José Molina, Fabian Abud and Chuck Howse – first learned of a series of devastating wildfires spreading across Napa and Sonoma. They felt helpless as wind-fueled fires burned all around Kenwood. The flames were literally yards away from our Angel-funded winery, and if the winds had blown a little differently that day, we would have lost a year’s production.
Not everybody was so lucky - the fire tore through communities and neighborhoods, leaving hundreds homeless in the blink of an eye. Your cellar guys wanted to do something about it, so they decided to celebrate the fact they still had a tank of perfectly intact wine to share, and make a special wine dedicated to the communities who needed help most.
Their first-ever red blend was lovingly dedicated to the hard-working residents of Napa, Sonoma and Santa Rosa. 100% of pre-order sales for this wine went directly to fire recovery and relief efforts in those counties, helping to raise over $800,000 for communities in need.
Cellar Crew's Archangels
Since my better half and I have found Naked Wines it has taken us to a different level! A different level in food preparation a different level in social interaction and a different level in just plain old enjoyment of life! Our journey has just begun and we have learned to slow down, breathe and go to places we never thought we would! Thank you Naked Wines for enlightening us and giving us the chance to be part of a wonderful creation of superb wines! Cheers!
Live each day as if it were your last and enhance every dinner with a glass of wine. Cheers!
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.
