A Community in Bloom

Welcome to the season of fresh starts – and new releases you’ll love

Here in Napa, the springtime sun is stirring even the most stubborn vines. Little drives and long walks across the Valley reveal acres of vineyards stretching awake, their first signs of leafy life revealed with “bud break” – the official moment when growing season begins.

Watching the vines shake open, we can’t help but feel fresher ourselves – looking forward to new wines and winemakers bursting on the scene with Naked’s resounding Angel support.

Derek Rohlffs is a longstanding Naked winemaker, but his brand new Grenache makes us see Anderson Valley with new eyes.

Nova Cadamatre’s fresh perspective shines in her elegant debut New York Riesling – a first for Naked!

And Alexander Valley phenom Jesse Katz is releasing his highly-anticipated exclusive Cabernet following a record-breaking pre-sale of his Aperture Cellars wines last year.

One year ago, our regular lives were turning dormant as we experienced shutdowns for the first time. With the start of the season, fantastic new projects from veteran winemakers, and new superstars coming into the fold, the world feels new and bright once again.

Let that sun shine.
