Katie turned to Naked after she made the gut–wrenching discovery that vandals had emptied her entire vintage down the drain, turning her winemaking dream into a nightmare. 2,500 Angels pre-ordered 30,000 bottles in just 48 hours to get Katie back on her feet... and she's gone from strength to strength ever since, making some seriously delicious wines, with sparkly awards a plenty.
How does it work?
We agree with you on a range of wines - wine-styles, volume and price points. Costs, budgets and pricing are agreed using a "Cost Plus" approach, not an ex-winery price including margin.
We help fund production through firm orders, cash and other financing support. You earn through a monthly retainer and/or bottle fee - your income/profit is guaranteed.
Additional earnings are possible by impacting direct sales.
You are the brand and therefore own the brand. We take care of all sales, marketing and regulatory tasks.
You earn through a monthly retainer and/or bottle fee - your income/profit is guaranteed.
What do we mean by "Cost Plus"?
Costs: Grapes + Winemaking + Dry goods + Bottling
Plus: Winemaker income (retainer and/or bottle fee) + NW margin + Delivery cost
Why? We want a transparent approach to cost, not clouded in margin and provides flexibility to accomodate vintage variation. It protects the winemakers earnings and ensure customers don't pay overinflated prices.
What's expected of you?
- Truly world-class wines that "WOW" our customers
- Knowledge and access to the best grapes, techniques and winemaking tools
- Reliable forecasting of costs and volumes
- Regular online interaction with our customers
- Promotion of nakedwines.com and yourself in the media
- Once a year joining a tasting tour to support your wines
