Joao Brito e Cunha's Story
"Our family is since many years ago relationated with the Douro History, Region and Wine. I descend from D.Antónia Adelaide Ferreia, which was my grandmother. So since I was young we went many times to the Douro Quintas. The winemaking, but most the blends and tasting of many diferent wines at that time, was something that fascinated me.
Each wine that I make is different. I work in one of the top region in the world, where we have so many different variables, with different - sun exposition, altitude, age of the vines, soil and many and rich grape varieties. The combination of all of this details with knowledge you get will allow to get many different wines.
I always work to get the balance, respect the nature and the Terroir in each wine. I try to get identity and unique flavours from ours grape varieteis.
I believe our wines show unique flavours, not as know grape varieties, they are very gastronomic wines, not commercial wines. Small quantities wines from the old world. They are serious, complex wines, with lots of minerality, which comes from the great Terroir that the Douro region has got.

At Naked Wines we define fine wines as wines that need more than one year from vine to table. This is a subject of very heated and earnest debate among wine enthusiasts, and every one of them seems to have their own definition. So we just picked the one that made the most sense to us!
In our humble opinion (and there are many who would disagree) fine wines are not NECESSARILY:
From classic regions like Bordeaux and Burgundy. Other less well known regions are capable of producing wines that blind taste tests rate as equivalent or even better than the classic regions.
Estate Wines. Many expensive wines source most of their grapes from independent growers.
In September 2013, we launched a Fine Wine Bond where we raised £5 million to invest in the 'top-end' stuff.
So we're well armed to take on the fine wine market with a bang - and our range of fine wines will be increasing over the next few months / years!
The bond offer is now closed, but we might run another issue in the future if there's enough interest…
Smart move - you've found the Sweet Spot
Here's a juicy little nugget of insider info…
When it comes to wine, a small step in price = a HUGE leap in quality and taste
By spending $11 - $15 for a bottle of wine, you're actually getting more than DOUBLE the quality of wine than a $8 - $10 bottle... pretty impressive huh?
Sound too good to be true? It's not. Here's how it works...
The first several bucks you pay for a bottle covers basics that don't make the wine taste any better (glass bottle, bottling, labeling, closure, etc). As the price of a bottle increases, more of your money goes towards the delicious juice in the bottle rather than dry goods, taxes, and other boring stuff that adds nothing to the taste.
So you get a LOT more bang for your buck
These Sweet Spot wines have benefited from the very best fruit picked from immaculate vineyards, oodles of TLC, and a lil' extra Angel-funding at every step of the winemaking process.
Pull yer socks up. Because if these Sweet Spot beauties don't blow 'em off I don't know what will
I guarantee our Sweet Spot wines will blow you away. If they don't, then I'll give you every single penny back. So you've really got nothing to lose.
