Via Vecchia, "a Quality Micro-Winery that makes unadultered [sic] and unadjusted wines, by adulterated and adjusted people," appears to be the first winery I've encountered with a blog, but no Web site.
By their own description, they are some or all of the following:
- Border radicals
- Cultural Creatives
- Fair Trade Activists
and they have been blogging up a storm. They are also located in Ohio, so I'm wondering if they know fellow Ohio winery blogger Nancy Bentley over at Kinkead Ridge (Nancy's in Ripley, Via Vecchia is in Powell, and here's a map -- looks like a bit of a drive).
On the plus side: lots of writing and energy, and they've been at it since May, showing perseverence. On the downside, the videos need work and *I* desperately need an "About Us" post - I have no idea who all the people in the pictures are. Actually, they go by names, but the relationships are unclear. Whose writing am I reading?
Regardless, visit the Via Vecchia blog, We Stomp, and give them some feedback on what they're doing.
(My recommendation - add some posts that talk about what you're trying to accomplish at Via Vecchia, and who the players are. The posts could probably benefit by being shorter, single-thought entries. I like the photos, and clearly, there's a story in there somewhere. Just let it out! And maybe think about a Web site for more static information?)
