A man on a mission to show you the real MalbecRead more
After growing up on a farm, Gian Paolo spent years as the main man of a metal and plastic processing company but he was never able to forget his roots. A few years ago the urge to get back to nature became too much so he decided to follow his heart and venture into the wonderful world of wine.
Returning to the rolling hills of Piemonte made him realise that mother nature is really the one in charge here! He is careful to show the uttermost respect for the land around him and his favourite quote is "wine is obtained from grapes, it is not made".
Gian Paolo hopes you will really be able to taste the passion and hard work that goes into his wines. He’s waiting patiently to hear your thoughts and is brimming with excitement for you to taste them. Now it’s over to you!
Born and raised in the rugged Priorat region of Catalonia, to an English dad and French mum, Luca got a winemaking Master’s degree in Bordeaux, where he lived in the middle of St Emilion. He’s since made wines on 3 continents, and speaks 5 languages fluently.
Over the years, Luca realised he had to unlearn a lot of stuff from wine school. Like using artificial additives, pesticides, man-made irrigation and fertilizers. He believes vineyards are like people. If left to nature, they have personalities that shine through in their wines.
To Luca, wine is the most social product man has ever made, pure emotion in a glass. A mirror of the soils and location it springs from. It brings our senses down to earth. With Naked funding behind him, he’ll be able to focus 100% on what he’s best at, making his old-vine Chilean classics taste as delicious as possible.
