NAKED WINEMAKING TEAM
Owner & President Naked Wines, LLC / Head Winemaker
Winemaker /"Girl in Charge"
Growing up on her family’s Hood River Valley vineyard, Alaina could only dream that she would one day be turning grapes into wine. In 2013, after graduating from Oregon State University with a degree in Enology and Viticulture, that dream of becoming a winemaker became reality. Alaina joined the Naked team in February 2014. She oversees winemaking in our Hood River winery and always finds new ways to improve our reserve wines and develop new wine club exclusive blends. Recently, her 2016 Orgasmic Sangiovese was awarded 92 points and won a Gold Medal in the San Francisco International Women’s Wine Competition. A Gold Medal is given to “An exceptional wine that is near the pinnacle of achievement in its category; sets the standard for all other wines of its type”. Over 1150 wines were submitted into the competition and to bring home a Gold medal is quite an impressive achievement. Congratulations to Alaina!
