Third generation, born and bred, award-winning Hunter Valley winemaker
- Born into a winemaking family, Thomas has been up to his ears in grape juice all his life and active in the business for over 15 years. His intimate knowledge of the Hunter grape growing region is next level.
- His true passion, and lifelong dream, was one day to summon up the courage to go 100% Naked. He instinctively believed there had to be a better way than slogging away working for the ‘man’.
- When his day job came to a halt, Angel funding came to the rescue and Thomas is now fully Naked and fully focused on crafting thousands of cases of Angel-exclusive Wiley Rooster NSW deliciousness.
Thomas Hordern's Story
Thomas is a third generation winemaker from the Hunter Valley, NSW. Winemaking has been in his family for 60 years and Thomas has been winemaking himself for over 10 years now.
Thomas loves the freedom of being creative with his wines and variety. He loves to get his hands dirty with every aspect of growing, making and selling wines.
His wine highlight to date - watching his first ever bottle go down the bottling line and travelling around France and USA enjoying beautiful wine regions.
Thomas is so grateful for his opportunity with Naked... A chance to meet new customers and other winemakers. To teach and advance people's wine knowledge all around the globe and the ability to learn from other great winemakers from all around the world.
And... we have him on board all because of our Angels!
