From Petrus to Silver Oak - he's a Napa legend with the Bordeaux touchRead more
Listen to Daniel’s lifetime of winemaking stories on his podcast, The Winemaker’s Journey – featuring interviews with fellow winemakers and friends in the Napa Valley.
Rob’s had a hand in Napa’s sparkling wine game since its infancy, getting his boots wet at Chappellet and Schramsberg and later leading teams for Scharffenberger, Piper-Sonoma and Mumm. That's quite the pedigree!
Thanks to you, this seasoned sparkling professional has a new mission – to make elegant, esteemed bubbly more accessible to all!
He's rubbed elbows with rock stars, made championship bubbly for the major leagues and raked in 90-point scores as a critic darling – but 35 years into this business, this is the first time Rob's making sparkling under his own personal label. That’s all thanks to supporters like you.
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.
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.”
