Ten of the most popular Naked winemakers from all over the country were flown in to celebrate, Jen Pfeiffer, the Santolins, Adam Barton, Ash Horner, Geoff Thompson, Thomas Hordern, Hamish Maguire and Stuart Pym. More than twenty wines both old and new were offered for everyone to try along with servings of delicious canapés.

Sustainable winemaking was the topic presented during the workshop for media by the husband and wife team Anna and Derek Hooper from Obelisk wines along with Cynthea and David Feldheim from Gypsy Caravan wines.

Wines made in accordance with sustainable practices are currently on the ascent, and the consumer appetite for such wines is steadily growing. Sustainability refers to a range of practices that are not only ecologically sound, but also economically viable and socially responsible.

Naked Wines is a customer-funded wine business. Since July 2012, they’ve invested over $18 million in twenty  independent Australian and New Zealand based winemakers and shipped over 2 million bottles of wine. Their customers (Angels) earn wholesale prices for funding independent winemakers. They don’t invest in sales, marketing, fancy packaging and other things that wine drinkers can’t taste. For example, Hearts and Bones Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon 2011 – Stuart Payne Price $39.99 is offered at an Angel Price of $24.99 with a saving of $15.00.

Naked Wines’ second birthday party was held on Thursday, 3rd of July 2014 at the National Art School in Darlinghurst.
