An incredible Napa talent - you discovered her first!
Jacqueline landed a prestigious winemaking gig in her early twenties - and has spent a decade’s worth of harvests in wine capitals including Umbria, Ribera del Duero, Hawke’s Bay, Sonoma and Napa, collaborating with hundreds of Angel-funded winemakers along the way. To say she’s a brilliant talent is putting it lightly!
- You put her in charge of the winemaking team at your Angel-funded winery, where she built a state-of-the-art facility from scratch. In the 4 years she spent working as your Director of Winemaking, she nurtured thousands of your exclusive wines from barrel to bottle – including her own decadent Pinot and Cabernet Franc with skyrocketing ratings.
Now, Jacqueline’s set on her next adventure, and she’s crafting regionally-focused wines from across California. Keep your eye on her – we’re prepared for this woman to take over the world.
Jacqueline Bahue's Story
"I love that we work really hard towards making a product that, at the end of the day, we get to use to relax and enjoy. All those hours of work, problem solving, and care go into a product that is made to be enjoyed and shared with other people."
Jacqueline Bahue (BAY-hue) is a first-generation winemaker and has spent nearly a decade working in wine. After completing her B.S. at University of California Davis for Viticulture and Enology, she has worked for wineries in Italy, Spain and New Zealand as well as throughout Northern California. Working with winemakers from around the world has fueled her love for wine– and food, language and culture.
Jacqueline joined nakedwines.com way back in its infancy to open its winery facilities in Sonoma, CA and quickly ascended to the role of Director of Winemaking. In 2016, Jacqueline took the advice of thousands of eager fans and became a full-time independent winemaker. Her master plan is to develop more and more Jacqueline Bahue wines, exclusively for Angels!
