Customer Take Over: John Krause

John submitted this interview video for a web redesign project he is working on.  Aside from this, and being a customer of ours, John runs the website California Corks, filled with wineries as a database to help you plan your CA wine country tours, resources for wine region maps, tasting tips, and more!  We can’t wait for the web redesign to be finished which will include more winemaker interviews like the one above, focusing on the California winery experience.  Check it out!

In this video, Ken Post from Fäsi Estate Winery is interviewed, and he comes off as the archetypal Central Valley winemaker.  He’s well spoken, sweet, fun loving, knowledgeable, willing to experiment, and honest.

Not to mention, the video production level is quite nice, aside from a bit of cellar echo, but well, that too is honest, so no harm, no foul.

Please enjoy, and thank you John!
