Naked Wines

Naked Wines, the UK’s fastest growing online wine retailer, was born in December 2008 when twelve friends jacked in their jobs during the depth of the recession to do things a little differently.  Their goal was to find the world’s most talented, undiscovered winemakers and set them up in business.

There’s absolutely no need to join a club or commit to future purchases but if you do want to become more involved and buy discounted quality wine on a regular basis, you can always become an Angel.

  • 100,000 Angels invest over £2m a month towards future orders.
  • Naked Wines use this to fund independent winemakers who in return…
  • Offer exclusive wines at preferential prices.
  • Which Naked Wines pass back to their customers.

Naked Wines call it the ‘virtuous circle’, as everybody gets more for less, without trampling on anyone along the way.
