Naked Winemaker

David Tofterup

Spanish Winemaker of the Year 2015 and 2017 joins the Naked family

    • Born in Denmark (in his own words, a country known more for drinking wine than making wine!) David saw how much fun his parents had in their basement dabbling in homemade wine... but it wasn’t until the family moved to Spain when he was 15 that he really caught the winemaking bug.
    • Fast forward 24 years - and David has worked at wineries all over the world including Spain, France, Chile and the US. But it's those native Spanish grapes that really grab his attention. The unpredictability of Monastrell (you may know it as Mourvedre) and the many different characters of Tempranillo draw him in year after year.
    • Without Angel support David wouldn't have been able to transition from large scale corporate wine production to boutique style wines with buckets of oomph and personality. This new found freedom means he can go back to the roots of winemaking and discover all the possibilities Spain has to offer. Something we think he is really rather good at…!
