No worries — despite the intriguing NakedWines.com title, you won’t be tasting in the nude, nor will the 20 or more attending winemakers be serving their samples in their birthday suits. The moniker comes from the idea behind this radical new company, which crowd-funds to support 150 independent winemakers from all over the world, cutting out the middleman and bringing excellent prices to thirsty web-savvy consumers. Now they’re taking their show on the road with a bus tour that hits five cities in five days, with more than 90 California wines available to try, bottles to buy, and the rare and enviable chance to meet and mingle with the producers themselves.
