Naked Winemaker

Christian Patat

The talent behind the near-mythical Appassimento and other bold, spicy Italian reds

    • There are legends, Naked legends, and then there’s Christian Patat. A man who turns everything he touches into liquid gold.
    • In his day job as a consultant oenologist, Christian travels all over Italy helping lesser mortals make their wines taste amazing. That means he knows where all the best grapes hide out, and is in the box seat to snaffle them before anyone else can get their cheque book out.
    • Having learnt his thang in Burgundy, Priorat and all over Italy, Christian knows exactly how to craft sensational wines, the proof of the pudding in his blockbuster Appassimento, nicknamed the ‘Naked Godfather of Big Reds’. It’s one of our most popular wines of all time and sells out every year!
