Your #1 winemaker and his talented granddaughter take on Calaveras wines••• More
Fresh out of Cal Poly’s enology program, Meaghan’s teaming up with the most popular winemaker on nakedwines.com and YOUR 3-time Winemaker of the Year – her very own grandpa, Stephen Millier – to make a signature line of Gold Country wines.
Meaghan is ready to get to work with Grandpa by her side, crafting single-vineyard specialties that really show off the Calaveras land they both love.
If it's famous and fizzy, chances are – Penelope's the talent behind it. As Director of Winemaking for the top sparkling production company in CA, she’s made hundreds of iconic bubbles over the years!
Discretion is key here – when you work with prestigious sparkling houses like she does, you keep the name dropping to a minimum. But it's fair to say her talent has influenced the famous sparkling you know and love.
With 30+ years of winemaking under her belt, Penelope is an expert at making those wines to spec. But thanks to you and her friends at Breathless (a female-led Healdsburg winery) she’s making exclusive sparkling of her very own. For the very first time!
Unmistakably one of the North Coast’s top winemaking talents, Ondine Chattan’s worked for wine institutions – famed wineries like Ridge Vineyards, Cline Cellars, and spent decades running famed Healdsburg winery Geyser Peak.
Does Geyser Peak sound familiar? It should – it’s the long-time winemaking home of one legendary Daryl Groom – and it’s where these decades-long colleagues and friends met. They’re still close… in fact, they might collaborate on exclusive wines now and again.*wink.*
Ondine is awestruck by the wine community Angels have built – and she wants to help it grow. “I truly connect to people through the wines I make,” she said. “The stories of the growers, the vineyards, and the process behind the wine are as vital to me as grapes.”
Brothers Nicholas and Marshall Miller are 5th generation farmers, and they’ve tended to the most famous vineyards along the California coast – Bien Nacido and French Camp – practically since birth.
Seriously, put those vineyards’ names in an internet browser. Hundreds of famous and pricey wines pop up – but none have the Miller name on the bottle. Why? When you have famous fruit like theirs, it’s promised to other winemakers years in advance…
With your funding, they signed a new contract – with themselves. Now, these grape growers-turned-producers are making their own wines from the coastal land they love so dearly – including Santa Barbara and Paso Robles. This is what Angel support is all about!
Rudy Von Strasser is the man behind Napa’s legendary winery Von Strasser – and its famed Diamond Mountain Cabernet. In fact, he’s the reason ‘Diamond Mountain District’ shows up on wine lists – he advocated to make it an official valley AVA (American Viticultural Appellation) back in 1999.
Your fellow winemakers Alex Farber and Ryan O’Connell met Rudy when he was in a tight spot – he wanted to produce a top-quality Petite Sirah he loved, but had no room in the winery for...
Angels came to the rescue then – now he's paying YOU the ultimate thank you... by sharing more of his famous wines. Including the flagship Diamond Mountain Cab he loves most!
