Our Mission

We are on a mission to cut America’s divorce rate in half by inviting couples to shut off the TV and share a glass of wine with each other nightly. Our high quality wines enhance the romance of wine by pleasing the palate -- and other senses, with provocative brands and back labels that change the conversation and set the mood for romance and fun. Our labels are indeed provocative, and a bit risqué because we believe you should drink what you like, not what others say is good. And at Naked Winery, remember that, We Aim to Tease!®

Our Story

Dave's Aha Moment

Naked Winery is a Family Owned Winery

The Barringer and Michalec families hooked up at the turn of the century and have since formed Naked Winery. We have both Oregon and Washington wineries located within the Columbia River Gorge.  Our flagship tasting room is located in downtown Hood River, Oregon (our hometown and company headquarters) about 60 miles east of Portland on the Columbia River separating Oregon and Washington State. Our newest tasting room is located in Bend, Oregon, in the Old Mill District.



Naked Winery produces Oregon and WashingtonWines

The grapes for our red varietals (Syrah, Cabernet, Sangiovese, Nebbiolo, Barbera and Merlot) are orgasmically grown in the hot and dry Apple Gate and Columbia Valley regions of Oregon and Washington respectively. While our other varietals (Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Muscat and Riesling) benefit from the cool pacific marine layers of the Willamette and Illinois Valley's to produce subtle and complex wines. The vines in Washington's Columbia Valley struggle with just enough drip irrigated water to produce exceptional fruit for our big bold Chardonnays.
