About Naked Wines

Instead of pushing suppliers on price, we fund our winemakers up front - helped by our Angels - so they’re free to focus on what they’re passionate about. Without the traditional wine industry costs, we make great savings, which we’re able to pass on. That means our winemakers are paid fairly and our Angels enjoy top-notch wine at prices that are typically 33% less than the high street. It’s a win-win.
