Remi Petri

Head of Procurement at NakedWines.com

Born and raised in France, Remi's passion for wine began at an early age. He moved to the UK in the 90's which interestingly enough is where his career in the industry kick-started. He bumped into the right person at the right time and soon enough he was working for Richard Branson's 'Virgin Wines' as a Wine Advisor.

Few years down the road in 2008, Remi decided with a few colleagues it was time to leave and start their own company called Naked Wines. It was right in the middle of the economic crisis but they held strong and they are now making wines in over 20 countries. In 2012 Remi came to Napa to help launch the new branch where he now leads the procurement team. The success has given them the ability to wear many hats over the years and he is now responsible for producing around 1 million cases.
