My name’s Rowan and I’m to blame for all of this. Let me explain
Back in 2008 I set out to make the world a better place for wine drinkers like you. A world where the only wine you ever drank was lovingly created by talented winemakers. Where the quality of every bottle was guaranteed top notch but you didn't pay crazy prices. And a 100% money back guarantee meant you could always buy with complete confidence.
Most importantly, a world where passionate winemakers could make a decent living. Where both you and they stopped being ripped off. Good idea?

A wine industry is ripping everyone off
For years the big supermarkets have been giving winemakers and drinkers like you a lousy deal. Their buying clout forces winemakers to churn out bland production line plonk for peanuts, which the big boys stick a fancy label on and flog to you as special offer
Winemakers are driven to the wall and frankly you could make better tasting vinegar in your garden shed. In fact the only winner is the supermarkets.
Our 200,000 Angels are changing that
A growing army of 200,000 Naked Angels in the UK now tuck the £20 they'd normally spend on wine each month into their own wine-piggy bank at Naked.
In return they make spectacular wines exclusively for you, at insider prices. So your £20 gets you much better wine for your money.
We use the money to back hundreds of talented winemakers in 65 places around the world, to the tune of £4 million every month.
It's classic crowd-funding. The power of people coming together so everybody wins. You get far superior wine at preferential prices, and the winemakers are able to make a living. Only supermarket profits get squeezed.
Oh, and it's not one of those naff wine clubs where you're locked into buying a 3-monthly case of gut-rot. Our website is your cellar, you can pop along any time, choose when to buy and what to buy. You can pick the day of the month your £20 gets saved, and change the amount, or cancel anytime you like. No tie-ins, no hidden nasties in the long grass. It really is all gravy. Well, wine.
PS. I’ll bet my house you’ll love the wines, but if any bottle ever leaves you feeling underwhelmed, let us know and we’ll give you your money back.
120 winemakers, over 400 wines
We fund talented winemakers and give them the freedom to make wines the way they want to. Like Rebecca Santolin and her husband Adrian. They are the brains behind their Boy Meets Girl range with the Naked Angels making their dream reality. Their wine is dedicated to you!
We make wines happen
Since launching in 2008, Angels have helped us invest over £25m in more than 130 winemakers worldwide.
Because our growers know that their fruit has been sold upfront, they can focus on quality, not quantity of grapes.
Our winemakers are lovely people with amazing stories to tell - doesn't that sound better than wine made to a recipe in an oil refinery?
More interesting wines
We're not a supermarket shelf, so we don't need big brands or fancy labels to sell our wines. So we can take a bet on quirky and interesting wines you wouldn't get anywhere else.
Our winemakers also know their wine is sold upfront, so they spend their time in the cellar making the wine delicious, rather than on the road trying to sell it.
Because we have 200,000 Angels, we can take a small winemaker's entire vintage. A life-changing commitment that is rewarded with the best price.
Because we deliver directly to your door, you don't pay for agents or distributors. So you get the best possible price.
What do our customers think?
"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
