Naked Winemaker

Fernando Candelario



Mexican-American winemaking star whose dreams know no bounds

  • Since arriving from Mexico, Fernando has worked his way through the ranks in Napa and Sonoma, from vineyard and cellar worker at Robert Mondavi to Cellar Master and winemaker at T-Vine in Calistoga, then founding his own brand, Voces.
  • Fernando now has the opportunity to bring a fresh new voice into winemaking, bringing his vision for wines to a national audience, raising representation for the vineyard and cellar workers who have truly been the backbone of California wine culture for the last 50 years.
  • Fernando is especially passionate about making reds like Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir and Syrah, as well as whites like Chardonnay. With your support, he has access to some of the finest vineyards in Carneros and Russian River Valley. The sky’s the limit!
