We’ve been looking for an experienced winemaker familiar with the central Coast and Monterey area in particular – we knew Rick fit the bill. He's farmed the gorgeous, cool South Cali vineyards for over 25 years!
He had been making wine his whole life, but got out of the biz (to start a bonsai business) because the risk and middlemen got in the way of his passion. He's back in, thanks to you!
What makes Rick's wines special? "I take a different perspective compared to a lot of other wines out there - like Euro style; delicate - like focused generous reds, focused complex whites; plenty of persistence, fruit, and flavor."
Alex Farber is a startling young talent that Angels discovered working at a big fancy winery in Napa Valley.
Every winery wishes it had an Alex Farber because she's diligent, passionate and knows her stuff... but most wineries hide their junior talent and shine a spotlight on some old fuddy-duddy consulting oenologist who drops by the winery a few times a year.
Angels give credit where credit is due, and Alex now gets to make her own stunning wines (and gets all the applause!)
Karen Birmingham honed her awesome talent working for years at renowned sustainable winery LangeTwins.
Using Angel funding, Karen has selected three very special, sustainably grown vineyards, including a plot of Zinfandel that's over 100 years old, producing amazingly concentrated, inky zin with a lot of structure.
Karen's delicate touch always brings out the best in the fruit and really makes the fruit shine in the warm, sandy soils she calls home.
Scott was an integral part of the Kendall-Jackson winemaking team, defining California Chardonnay in the 90s. That Cali Chardonnay style known all over the world as unctuous, ripe, full-throttled.
He loves working with Angel funding because you let him make the wines he wants to in the way he wants to make them. He's all about old school California and he doesn't want to make a new style of wine just because it's fashionable.
If you like gloriously rich Californian wine that takes no prisoners, go and buy a bottle (or three) of Scott's wine. You will not regret it.

Just became an Angel
Smart move - you've found the Sweet Spot
Here's a juicy little nugget of insider info…
When it comes to wine, a small step in price = a HUGE leap in quality and taste
By spending £8-£10 for a bottle of wine, you're actually getting more than DOUBLE the quality of wine than a £6-£7 bottle …pretty impressive huh?
Sound too good to be true? It's not. Here's how it works…
As the price of a bottle increases, more of your money goes towards the delicious juice in the bottle rather than tax, duty and other boring stuff that adds nothing to the taste.
So you get a LOT more bang for your buck
These Sweet Spot wines have benefited from the very best fruit picked from immaculate vineyards, oodles of TLC, and a lil' extra Angel-funding at every step of the winemaking process.
Pull yer socks up. Because if these Sweet Spot beauties don't blow 'em off I don't know what will
I guarantee our Sweet Spot wines will blow you away. If they don't, then I'll give you every single penny back. So you've really got nothing to lose.
