He's on a mission to make Limoux famousRead more
Limoux is one of the most famous French sparkling wine regions 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.
Cristián Vallejo has made wine all over the world, from Napa to Spain to Italy — he even did a stint at Bordeaux’s iconic Château Margaux. Now he champions Cachapoal Valley — specifically the Millahue subregion — one of Chile’s up and coming areas for elegant, world-class Cabernet.
Combining elements of organic, biodynamic and natural winemaking, Cristián crafts bold, signature reds that have won accolades like “Best Chilean Wine” at the Decanter World Wine Awards.
Now your funding helps him channel his lifetime of expertise into his own signature versions of Chile’s hallmark red wines. And for supporting Cristián to share his favorite Chilean reds with everyday wine drinkers, the rewards are yours to savor!
When it comes to South Africa wine, Richard Kershaw’s a bona fide legend — he’s a Master of Wine (one of only 416 in the world) and the first MW to make wine in South Africa — now he’s thrilled to be making the special projects of his dreams, exclusively for you!
Angel funding gave Richard the jump his one-man business needed, allowing him to tap into South Africa's huge potential to make spectacular wines without hiking up the price.
With Angel funding, Richard can give every wine his personal touch from start to finish, selecting grapes from small, esteemed vineyards tended by grapegrowers he knows personally and hand-crafting each vintage with his signature minimal intervention style.
Mirko Sella is a bona fide expert of northern Italy, specifically world-famous Valpolicella, where he’s the third generation to make wine from his family’s vineyards.
When Angels voted to bring on more Italian wines and fund a Ripasso (a Valpolicella specialty) — all roads led to Mirko! With 20 harvests in Valpolicella under his belt, he’s ready to share his wines on the world stage, thanks to you!
Mirko’s wines are regional classics made with sun-dried grapes hand-harvested from his family’s vineyards: a powerful, concentrated Valpolicella Amarone, and it’s bold ally, a fruity Valpolicella Ripasso.
When Angels voted for more organic wine options, we heard you loud and clear. Now you’re funding one of the leading organic-focused winemakers in the business — Chris Condos!
Chris is an award-winning, highly sought-after organic expert who’s dedicated his career to showcasing the best organically-grown grapes from the northernmost reaches of California wine country.
Paso Robles wine growers Randy & Cheryl Phillips firmly believe in miracles — particularly, their Miracles Ranch estate — a sweeping 100-acre vineyard property they planted back in 1992 way before this Central Coast wine town developed a world-class reputation.
They've cemented their place in Paso Robles wine history as early grapegrowers of a now prestigious region. Their grapes have been sold to famous wineries for years and years, featured in iconic blends that sell upwards of $60 per bottle.
Now you're getting special access to the wines handcrafted from their award-winning vineyards. By funding this husband-wife team you’re getting exclusive access to Cabernet, Syrah and more from their historic paradise off Oakdale Road.
Michael and Anne Dashe have worked with many top wineries — Ridge Vineyards, Far Niente, Chappellet, Château Lafite-Rothschild, Château La Dominique — but have developed style all their own. Elegant, balanced wines made with minimal additives, natural yeasts, and grapes from small family farms are their signature!
In their urban winery on Spirits Alley (an old Naval Airbase in Alameda, CA), Michael and Anne are using non-industrial winemaking techniques that allow them to highlight the fruit and emphasize the wine’s balance — crafting California Zinfandels in a unique style.
Jesse Katz is a winemaking wunderkind who spent his formative years working with legendary names like Bordeaux's Petrus (he even experienced a harvest at Screaming Eagle) before becoming America's youngest head winemaker at 25 with Lancaster Estate.
In 2009, Jesse launched his Sonoma winery, Aperture Cellars, where he’s already earned dozens of 95+ Parker Scores since then. He’s got decades of harvests before him and he loves the community you've built at Naked so much, he wants to make award-winning wines with you, too.
“Angel support is amazing," said Jesse. "Working with Naked Wines is a wonderful way to be creative and we’re excited about a growing partnership now and in the future.”
