Stephen has been making wine from his family vineyard in the Robertson Valley since the tender age of 17. Winemakers don't come more experienced, or, frankly, downright in love with their work than this man.
Not your usual small winemaker by Naked standards, but he once was. Thanks to Naked rescuing his business in 2008, Stephen’s wines are now widely available (and affordable) in South Africa.
Don't trust us, trust the critics. He has more Gold medals hanging around his office than the head of the IOC. He's also won Best Value Wine Award for 6 years running from Wine Magazine, 2006 to 2011.
Paolo Sacchetto is the third generation of his family to make Prosecco and despite a brief flirtation with economics in his twenties, it's what he was meant to do ever since he popped out into the world - and probably why he has earned himself the moniker, King of Prosecco.
When you hear the phrase 'family business', this time it's not just marketing clap trap. His 78 year old father still turns up to work every day, and there's cousins and siblings working in virtually every nook and cranny of the winery his grandfather founded.
With more than 90% of their production being Prosecco, Paolo and his crack team know exactly what they're doing, and the moment you wrap your laughing gear around a mouthful of their divine fizz, you'll be saying a little thank you to Paolo and the rest of the Sacchetto clan.
