Share a glass with your favourite winemakers on our Summer or Winter Tasting Tour
We'll wind around the UK, visiting 12 cities with 30 of your winemakers from around the globe. To say thanks for making their winemaking dreams come true and your supporting them through two very tough years, your winemakers are bringing along over 100 mouth-watering wines for you to get stuck into.
It's a fantastic opportunity to pick the brains of the winemaking legends behind your favourite bottles. You'll also be the first to taste some of their newest creations, and get your hands on a few surprise treats.
Plus... if you fancy stocking up on a few of the wines you've tasted, order on the night and you get your ticket money back*
Keep your eyes peeled on this page for a sneak peek of the winemakers who are jetting in to meet you this summer - and the wines they're bringing along for you to taste.
Meet your winemakers
Your Winemaker of the Year and Naked's first ever Lebanese winemaker, Eddy Naim makes flawlessly bold boutique wines. He's currently working on something extra special to thank you for your WMOTY votes.
Bill & Claudia Small
Your King and Queen of Marlborough make some of the highest-rated Sauvignons in New Zealand and it's all thanks to your support! They'll be pouring you a glass of their best stuff at the tasting to say thank you.
Sam is considered one of Australia's greatest living winemakers. With nearly a thousand awards to his name - including the Best Shiraz in Australia Trophy - what Sam doesn't know about wine isn't worth knowing
Nina has made wine for famous brands all over the shop - from the Rhône Valley to Marlborough. Now she's based in the land down under, developing sustainable growing methods and making outstanding wines.
Stefano di Blasi
Our King of Tuscany makes ultra elegant wines that never fail to turn critics heads. Angels have also given Stefano the seal of approval with nearly 200K ratings. Grab him for a chat and find out how he works his magic.
Marica's a super-talented third generation winemaker at her Veneto family winery - her wines were recently named among the best in the world by The Times. She's beyond excited to meet her new-found Angels.
What our Angels say
If you love discovering new wines and winemakers, but want to try before you buy. This is an event you really do not want to miss out on."
Craig Mackay, Angel
Tour, for me, represents all Naked Wines stands for in one afternoon. The opportunity to try so many wines is amazing. But the most important thing for me is the chance to speak with the winemakers. To see their passion and the love that goes into their wines while tasting it."
Beth Fuller, Angel
I look forward to these tasting events every year and feel very privileged being able to share a glass of wine with the person that actually made it."
Ray Bowen, Angel
One of the highlights of the year - chat to lots of winemakers, sample lots of wines, and have a thoroughly good time!"
Phil Keighley, Angel
The best night out of the year! Meeting your winemakers, sampling SO many new wines - and all the Angels! No pretentiousness, just fun friendliness. If you can, book the next day off work 😉"
Glyn Everett, Angel
There is nothing that can match the atmosphere of a Naked live tour. Meeting the winemakers, tasting the wines, mingling with other Angels and experiencing the buzz of being part of such an amazing wine collective. How they’ve been missed! Roll on Summer 2022!"
Karen Littler, Angel
Meet your winemaking gods, real life heroes, in person."
Stephen McGarry, Angel
A cellar door that comes to you, where creative souls are your hosts and the wine guardians are the gatekeepers. Loose yourself for a few hours and explore tastes you didn't even know existed! Experience it at least once!"
Chris Welfare, Angel
This is a great way to meet the actual folks who make the nectar that we enjoy & a wonderful opportunity to share their passion with them!"
Geoff Fitzgerald, Angel
This will be my umpteenth tour and I’m probably even more excited than ever before! Spending the evening chatting to other Angels, meeting the winemakers (best bit for me!) and getting out of my wine comfort zone makes the tour such a special experience!"
Vicky Vernon, Angel
Frequently asked questions…
How do I buy tickets to one of your events?
You can buy tickets to our Tasting Tour events either through our website here or by calling our help team on 01603 281869.
How many tickets can I buy?
To keep things fair, you can buy a maximum of ten tickets through your account. First come, first served.
Will you send me a ticket?
We'll ping an e-ticket to the email address registered on your Angel account. Simply flash this email on your phone when you arrive, or if you prefer you can print off a paper copy of your ticket to bring along with you. If you can't find your ticket please check your spam folder or give us a call on 01603 281869
I've bought tickets, but now I can't make it. Can I get a refund?
If you're unable to attend the event (sob!) please contact us immediately on 01603 281869, through Live Chat or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that we will only be able to refund you if you cancel more than 48 hours before the event.
The event I want to go to is marked as sold out but I need another ticket for my friend!
If the tasting is marked as sold out, it's because we can't physically squeeze any more people in due to the capacity of the venue. Do get in touch with us on 01603 281869, through Live Chat or email email@example.com and we'll pop you on a waiting list.
Can you buy tickets on the door?
No, unfortunately we are unable to sell tickets to our events on the door. All tickets must be purchased in advance.
When should I arrive?
Each event has its start and end times listed - this is when the doors open and when we stop pouring. Join us at any time throughout the event. The timings for the event are also listed on your ticket.
Is there disabled access and seating at the venue?
We work hard to ensure that all our events are fully accessible, but please contact us on 01603 281869 or firstname.lastname@example.org for specific venue information. There is seating at all of our events. The amount may vary from venue to venue, but there will always be somewhere you can sit down and fill out your order form in comfort.
Can I bring under someone under 18 to the event?
Book a babysitter... this is an adults only shindig. For obvious reasons. Due to licensing conditions we have a strict no admittance policy to anyone under 18 years old, including babes in arms and pushchairs. We may also ask for photo identification with proof of age.
What do I wear?
You can wear whatever you like to our events - as long as you feel comfortable. We would however, recommend wearing comfy footwear!
Do I need to know anything about wine?
Not at all! Our winemakers will be delighted to tell you all about the wines that you are trying. If you really don't know where to start, then just grab a member of Naked Wines staff (the ones wearing the snazzy blue aprons) who will be happy to give you some suggestions of which wines to try.
Will there be spittoons?
We provide plenty of spittoons at the event, but you are more than welcome to drink the samples - the choice is yours. It's wise to have a hearty meal before you come (or take advantage of the food stalls at the event!) and have the odd glass of water (provided on the tables) - you'll appreciate it the day after!
Can I order wine on the night?
You certainly can! When you arrive at the event you'll get a tasting booklet which includes your order form. At the end of the tasting simply hand your order form to one of our staff in the blue t-shirts. Even better, for every 12 bottles you order on the day, we'll knock the value of one ticket off, up to the number of tickets you've purchased on your account. i.e. the tasting is effectively free! And this is on top of your usual Angel discount. Orders placed at our events take a little bit longer than normal to be processed but your wines should be with you within a week. Top Tip: With over 100 wines to get your chops around, it's easy to forget which wines tickled your tastebuds - so we suggest scribbling notes in your booklet as you work your way around.
I'm bringing a friend along to the event - can they sign up to become Angels?
Absolutely! You're welcome to buy tickets for non-Angel friends to show them what it's like to get Naked! If they sign up to become an Angel at the tasting then we'll knock £40 off their first order - plus they'll get Angel prices.
Is there somewhere to put my coat/bag?
There's a free cloakroom at all of our events. For security reasons we'll need to check all bags... so it's best to bring a little one.
What happens if the tasting is cancelled or postponed?
If we have to cancel an event for one reason or another, we'll email you to let you know and refund the price of the tickets back on to your account. It can take a few days to process before you see the money back on your account. If we have to postpone, you will be given the option to keep hold of your ticket, or get a refund.
*You need to be registered and logged-in to order tickets, or you can register and order over the phone.

And if you want to buy additional cases, the above deal stands! Standard delivery charges and T&Cs apply to all orders, which can be found at www.nakedwines.com/terms. We will store your order form securely for 2 months, just in case we need to double check anything. Then we'll pop it in the shredder. N.B. Due to licensing restrictions there is a strict no under-18's policy on the event and this includes babies and children in pushchairs, so please arrange a babysitter!
