Wine bottles on a table

Meet our Wine Guys

Matt and Toby are your talented wine buying duo. They scout the globe looking for the world's best winemakers, ensuring your Angel funds get put to good use!

Meet Matt

Matt recently celebrated 20 years working in the wine trade. During that time he's scouted out top-notch wines for the likes of Waitrose and Berry Bros & Rudd. He brings a wealth of experience and a little black book of contacts that spans almost every wine region across the globe. Armed with your funding, he's on the lookout for some game-changing wines for Angels.

“My litmus test is when a winemaker starts talking about ingredients you won't find on any label, like passion and soul, and a sense of place. That's the gold dust and it's when I know we're onto a winner.”

Meet Toby

Our resident Wine Chap and taster-in-chief, Toby is a 10-year Naked veteran who knows every wine and winemaker in our range from top to bottom. When he's not in the tasting room making sure all our wines are properly delicious, he's also Naked's in-house teacher and a fully-qualified WSET educator, and has guided well over a hundred staff to pass their wine exams with flying colours.

“I think the proudest part of my job is seeing people revel in their new found wine knowledge, using it and passing it on. Wine should be shared and enjoyed together and you should be confident in doing it, that's my philosophy.”
