Naked Wines is a customer-funded wine business. Our customers, called Angels, fund talented, independent winemakers and get rewarded with delicious wines at wholesale prices in return.
HOW? You invest £20 a month into your Naked Wines account to spend on any of our wine, whenever you want. There are NO tie-ins or membership fees. And you can cancel and get your money back if we're not for you.
The £20 our Angels invest into their Naked Wines account every month allows us fund the best winemakers, buy the best grapes and give nature the time she needs. Because we deliver directly to you, you don't pay for middlemen.
By committing early and financing the same growers year after year, your money allows the growers to focus on quality rather than volume.
Because our growers know that their fruit has been sold upfront, they can harvest at optimal ripeness and flavour.
We squeeze less juice from the grapes so that we get all the fruit and less of the bitter dregs that make cheap wines taste cheap.
We can give nature the time she needs to turn the grape juice into delicious wines, rather than hurrying the process with artificial enzymes.
Because we buy barrels, bottles, corks and labels for hundreds of thousands of cases we get economies of scale that small winemakers don't.
Because we deliver directly to you, you don't pay for middlemen.
"Drinking good wine is enough pleasure in itself, but having a sense of relationship with the winemakers, that is beyond the purely commercial, adds something else to the experience."
Peter Batty, Angel
"I love your site. I love what you do, how you present it, and that I get really good wine for great value. I love that there is a simple way for me to educate myself about wine while supporting both your business and the wine growers."
Marc Ingram, Angel
"The problem with being a Naked Wines Angel, is that I keep wanting to buy more wine! Think I need to build a cellar!"
Caroline Nolan, Angel
"Naked Wines was born from the recession. It was 2008, Lehman Brothers has just gone bust and the entire world of business was shaking on its foundations."
"Naked Wines is helping democratize winemaking by investing in talented, independent winemakers…"
"Naked Wines has revolutionised how wine is sold, seeking out talented winemakers to make direct connections between customers and producers."

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:

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…
