Peter’s story can be summed up in 5,000 acres — from helping out in a vineyard as a child to harvesting fruit from that exact same spot as a Senior Winemaker for Australia's most iconic producer Penfolds.
He’s spent the last 40 years making world-famous blends from Scotts Creek — the vineyard he helped plant as a kid — only now he’s making wines under his own name. It doesn't get much more full circle than that!
Last year Kyle was spending her days in virtual school with her 9th graders and her free time learning about wine. Kyle was eager to take her wine education further, so she took a chance. One application to The Roots Fund, one year and four plane tickets to Napa later — now her dreams are taking flight.
Kyle is the honoree recipient of Naked & The Roots Fund’s Emerging Vintner Program and has been funded to craft her own exclusive wines in Napa Valley — with none other than winemaking legend Daniel Baron as her mentor (sharing all of his winemaking stories while hiking steep blocks!).
From teacher to student, Kyle is getting a crash course on winemaking — from first crush to putting her very own label on her very first bottles of wine that she’s making just for you. Follow Kyle’s inspiring journey and see what happens when passion and opportunity meet!
Leaving Spain for Sonoma, Montse earned her stripes in the Pedroncelli family, becoming only the third winemaker in the iconic winery’s 90+ year history and the first without the namesake.
It was love at first taste when she tried American Zinfandel. She’s since become a champion of the distinct Zins and reds of Dry Creek Valley — resonating with the flavors, sense of place and food friendliness all reminiscent of growing up in Catalonia.
While she’s found a home with a big winemaking family, she wasn’t born into one so she never thought she’d see her own name on a label. With Angel support, Montse is fulfilling her dream to bring her wines to the table.
Portuguese winemaker Hermano Veloso was discovered by Angels in the UK, where his easy-drinking red and white blends have been massive hits. Now his crowd-favorite Portugal wines are coming stateside for the first time!
Born and raised in Portugal's capital region, Lisboa, Hermano knows the area and its signature grapes better than anyone, and brings generations of winemaking expertise to every wine he crafts for you.
He’s eager to share his award-winning reds, whites and Rosés with more wine drinkers than ever before – and with the support of US Angels like you, he’s doing just that!
Limoux is the most tenured French sparkling wine region in the world — but you’ve probably never heard of it. Baptiste is here to change that.
He’s on this mission with his mother Françoise — who also proudly shares her bubbles with Angels. Together, they’re elevating the incredible wines of their home that they know and love — because they know you will love them, too.
Baptiste is a 7th generation winemaker following his family’s sparkling path — but at only 23, there’s no telling how far this next generation of Limoux will go.
