With the support of our Angels, customers who invest over £1million a month towards future orders, we've created a game-changing model based on collaboration rather than confrontation.

Online wine retailer Naked Wines, which sells an average of 10,000 bottles a day, has been shortlisted for two national merchant awards at this year’s International Wine Challenge competition.

Based in the Close in Norwich, the retailer faces some stiff competition. They’re up for ‘Wine Club of the Year’ against Tesco and The Wine Society and ‘Direct Merchant of the Year’ against Berry Bros. & Rudd, Laithwaites, Slurp.co.uk and again the Wine Society.

“With the support of our Naked Angels, customers who invest over £1million a month towards future orders, we’ve created a game-changing model based on collaboration rather than confrontation,” explained Naked Wines’ CEO Rowan Gormley.

“Everyone wins. Our winemakers are provided with cash-flow and guaranteed sales, and can focus on what they love. And our customers are rewarded with exclusive wines which they’ve had a hand in making, and 33% CashBack on every penny they spend.”

Launched in December 2008 by Gormley and a group of twelve friends, Naked Wines has recruited 175,000 customers to date and offers next day delivery throughout the UK.

Small, independent winemakers looking for funding and UK representation can find out more about working with Naked Wines at http://www.nakedwines.com/suppliers - and UK wine drinkers who want become an Angel can sign-up on the main website.

The award-winners, including the coveted IWC Merchant of the Year accolade, will be announced at the IWC Awards Dinner on 6th September 2011 at the Hilton Park Lane, where over 700 guests are expected to attend.
