Brian, from the Margaret River in WA has been producing for 30 years now and once managed a winery in Tunisia, Italy working out of an old colonial French Chateau making Carignan.
Brian Fletcher works with exceptional and dedicated growers in Margaret River so has access to fantastic fruit and a wonderful region in Margaret River to work with.
The upfront funding from the Naked Angels provides a fantastic opportunity for Brian to innovate without a total financial exposure. Brian cannot wait for the day he can talk directly to the angels and together they can create a new wine from scratch.
Having previously worked for McWilliams Wines, Orlando Wines and Giesen Wines, Rob has bucket-loads of experience and is excited to use this knowledge to make wines under his very own label. What's more, his winery was recently rated in the Top 10 New Wineries by James Halliday.
Each wine he creates now draws on incredible international experience..he's been everywhere a winemaker could want to work! Burgundy, Tuscany, Napa Valley, Niagara Peninsula and even the magical Marlborough.
Born and bred in the NSW Riverina region, nominated for young winemaker of the year in 2008 and with access to some seriously amazing fruit, Rob is now making wines exclusively for Angels!
Rob just gained 60,000+ new friends in the Angels. His lifelong dream is coming true and he thinks it an absolute pleasure to make the best possible wine that he can for everyone at Naked Wines!
Our first Hunter Valley winemaker, Andrew is crafting delicate and perfumed wines from prime vineyards in the Hunter Valley and the diverse regions of NSW
Over 25 vintages, Andrew made wines for some of Australia's oldest and most prestigious wineries. His experience making internationally multi-award winning wines has connected him with dedicated growers that share his passion for wines that typify the styles best reflective of the region.
Andrew has quit his regular job, leased a winery and gone it alone. He would not have been able to do this without the support of the Naked Angels.
Meet Stuart.... Born in Perth, Stuart has been making wine for 31 years. He is a legend and the man behind Devil's Lair, Voyager Estate and Stella Bella just to name a few.
Stuart has made wines in the Yarra Valley, Geelong and Bordeaux. He also undertook a study trip to Tuscany and Piedmonte, Burgundy and the Loire as well as Rioja and Priorat. So you could say he has a fair bit of experience.
His label, 'Hearts and Bones' celebrate the release of the creative spirit from the constraints of the day to day reality. It is with the support of the Angels that this burst of vinous creativity is able to happen.
Word of the burgeoning Mornington Peninsula region with its cool maritime climate piqued Kevin’s interest and, along with wife and fellow winemaker Kathleen Quealy, they extrapolated that Australia finally had the ideal home for Pinot G.
Kevin, ever the heretic, continues along the path less travelled, inspired by winemaking experiences around the globe. Kevin's winemaking family all share his passion for Italian varietals.
What does Naked mean to Kevin? The vocal and libationary support of Kevin's early customers was a key ingredient for the success of Pinot G in Australia. Direct contact prior to Naked required a visit to the winery, extolling the Pinot G message one glass at a time. Naked has transformed how Kevin interacts with PinotG lovers, allowing him to share the Heresy story with Angels while they experience the wines.
Rod left his full-time post as Chief Winemaker at Craggy Range, New Zealand's most iconic winery, to set-up-shop alone and make an exclusive range of wines just for us, using the BEST grapes that Hawke's Bay, Marlborough and Central Otago have to offer.
Rod is an immense talent, whose wines are dripping in medals, rave journalist reviews and oodles of Parker Points - and thanks to Angel funding and backing, he's agreed to get Naked!
This is a huge win because Rod is at the pinnacle of New Zealand winemaking. Your tastebuds are in for an incredible treat.
Naked funding will allow Paul’s expertise to be enjoyed by more than a few hundred people - before he became Naked, Paul created miniscule amounts of wine (in some cases as little as 40 dozen for one wine).
Previously working for big wineries like Houghtons and Goundreys, in 2009 Paul turned his attention to creating his own, highly boutique wines from the oldest vineyard and cellar door in Denmark (WA).
His first year as a go-it-alone winemaker saw his winery listed as a James Halliday Top 10 best new winery and Dark Horse winery. Paul was a man with experience, talent, and absolutely no money for grapes. Now thanks to you he has the support he needs… which means you’re in for a treat!

Altschwager & Kenneally prove that four heads can be better than one. A true collaboration that taps into a vast wealth of winemaking experience in both New Zealand and Australia.
At the core of every wine they hand craft is an unswerving respect for the land. Their passion is to source only the highest quality, sustainably grown fruit. The attention to detail is reflected in the sheer expressiveness of their wines.
Angel funding means everything to the Altschwager & Kenneally team. It ignited a dream to branch out on their own and break free from the shackles of corporate winemaking.
