We’d been looking for a good Macedonian wine for ages. Turns out the missing ingredient was Marko. He's had a top-flight career in France, making some of the world’s most famous drops, including Chateau Palmer in Margaux, and Vieux Telegraphe in Châteauneuf du Pape.
Marko could have settled for being toasted in the salons of Paris. Instead, he gave it all up and went back to his roots. He’s a passionate Macedonian who knew his homeland had the potential for amazing wines. But finding markets for the unfashionable region was tough, until he found Naked, and we found him. A panel of Archangels tasted the wine he sent in, and absolutely loved it.
Marko told us his dream was to find a bigger audience to showcase his country’s wines. We explained how 250,000 Angels were waiting to drink them. It felt like a marriage made in heaven. So we shook on it.
Adam has over 2 decades of winemaking experience under his belt. He spent 8 years at Klein Constantia - where he was responsible for Vin de Constance, one of the best sweet wines in the world. More recently, Adam was responsible for the revival of South Africa's prestigious Mulderbosch winery.
