April 2014 - Naked Winery
Hello from Carrie
Our first quarter of the year is off
to a fantastic start! I felt the
energy when I was at Oregon
Wine Symposium in February with
the other members of Team Nakd.
It a great team-building
experience, and it reinforced the
importance of telling our story
Spotlight on Pinot Noir
By David Barringer
Our 2011 Nakd Pinot
Noir comes to you from
the Rogue Valley. In
terms of growing temps,
2011 was perhaps the

intends to bring the romance back into wine and take the
pecksniffery out. Our mission is to cut the divorce rate in
coolest summer that we
can remember.
Thankfully, a late August

share a glass of wine together nightly. We are confident in

autumn brought the temperature back to normal. A

of the hard work and energy that we all put in to it. Thank
you so much for being part of the Nakd Experience!

very grateful for that. This Pinot Noir has soft notes

oak barrels, this smooth and soft fruity dark red
has notes of ripe cherry and aromas of
blackberries and black currant. Find the updated

Playful Pairings
Spring is here and summer is just around the corner.
There is no better wine for this time of year than Nakd
Pinot Gris. This light and refreshing wine hits you with a
full frontal blast of soft fruit and finishes crisp and easy.

cold summer salad or while chillin' on the porch on a hot
summer day.
Winemaking Update
I'd like to introduce the most

Winemaking Team - Alaina

native and was raised on a
small local vineyard called
Pine Grove Vineyards. Alaina
went to Oregon State where
she studied viticulture and
onology and spent time
working for E.J. Gallo Winery as well as Hogue Cellars. We

Below are some photos from the last few weeks.
The first photo is our winemaker Peter and I at
Taste Washington hanging out with Keith from Corfini
Cellars. The middle photo is from our March bottling
of 2012 Nakd Merlot. We hand bottled about 215
cases of Merlot in one day. If you haven't tried this
wine yet, I highly recommend it. The last photo is
from the Portland Grand Tasting. That's Peter giving
one of our fans a Nakd tattoo! If you have any
photos you'd like to share with us, please send
them to myself or to [email protected]
and you could see them on Nakd's Facebook page!
As always, thank you all for your support and if you
have any questions please don't hesitate to call or
