Over the last year six totally varied and different wines were selected by groups of Naked Wines customers to be listed by the company and receive direct financial investment. From those selected this final six were put up for the vote by Naked Wines customers (a mixed case was also made available for retasting). A healthy discussion over these wines took place across the social networks (especially Twitter) in addition to the ‘tasting night’ discussion on the Naked Wines website.

A week long window in which to vote closed last Thursday. The votes were counted and a young Argentine couple were the winners.

We’ve just got off the phone to a very excited, humbled winemaker to deliver some happy news…

We are seriously chuffed to announce the winner of the $500k Zero to Hero grand final is…


His scrummy Taymente Malbec 2010 bought in 34% of the vote, beating Sam Linter into second (with 20%) and Henri Forest in third (19%).

With the $500k investment Jose can now pay for his dream Mendoza vineyard, and make you a range of exclusive new wines at a happier price.” Eamon FitzGerald

This weeks Sunday Wine Shot is of the winning wine. Which just happens to be the wine I dropped my vote on. For interest the photograph was taken on an Iphone using the oggl app with Lucifer Vi lens and D-type Plate Film applied.
