Naked Wines invests in New Zealand wine maker

Online UK wine retailer Naked Wines is to invest £526,000 in the award-winning Jackson Estate Head Winemaker Mike Paterson, who will make three exclusive wines for the company.

The investment will enable Paterson to fulfil his long held ambition of making his own wines. The first of the three wines for Naked Wines’ customers will arrive at the end of June under Paterson’s Lay of the Land label.

Paterson said: "Lay of the Land wines have been a long time coming. I’ve always dreamt of making my own wine but the financial equation was beyond scary.

"The respect I hold for the team and owners of Jackson is immeasurable, but after talking with the innovative team at Naked Wines’ about their investment model, I knew I had to seize the opportunity."

Naked Wines is helping to raise funds for Paterson’s project by running a campaign to their 100,000 Angels at the end of June when Paterson’s first solo wine, a premium Sauvignon Blanc, hits the UK shores.

Naked Wines founder Rowan Gormley added: "After talking with Mike, it took us all of a minute to agree to fund him. He’s an exciting talent and we knew our Angels would rally around to support him."

The fund raising follows a campaign run earlier this year, where Naked Wines raised over £130,000 in a day to fund New Zealand winemaker Rod Easthope.
