3,760 Angels participated… and we have a winner
Now that the totals are tallied and the anticipation is at an all-time high…

It’s time to reveal your favorite rookie!

Drrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrum-roll, please…

With over 1,100 followers, your 1st Annual Rookie of the Year:

Chris Baker! Rookie of the Year, Chris Baker











Chris Baker is a Willamette Valley specialist — and with your funding, he’s ready to uncover the ultra-posh wines from this 100-point Oregon regions’ sub-appellations, like Rogue Valley and the Eola Hills.

…what’s crazy (and awesome) about this win is that at the time Chris was crowned, he didn’t have a single wine live on the site yet! Goes to show you’re just wild about Willamette… and Chris can’t wait to introduce you to that famous Oregon Valley’s best wines yet.

Chris says:

“I am honored to be part of the team and bring more Oregon wines to Naked. Thanks to Angel support I am getting back into the vineyard, and also extra time with the family.  I [am] extremely excited about the vintages to come!”


Go on — congratulate your Willamette champ!
Hop on over to his winemaker wall to send him your well wishes. Our indie winemakers LOVE hearing from wine drinkers like you. You’ll make his day!

And get excited, because there’s wine on the way…

Chris has some dee-licious Oregon wines coming soon, but you’ll have to wait until 2019 to taste his first Willamette project. Maybe he’ll give you early access *wink wink* — but you’ve got to follow his winemaker page to get on the list.

Finally… everything you LOVE about Oregon Pinot and Rosé – in one glass!
