500,000 views on BKWine TV

”BKWine TV” is our video channel on Youtube. Lately we have not been very good at publishing new video material. It takes a lot of time to edit videos so have not quite been able to keep up with all the raw material that we have (any video editing volunteers?). But every once in a […]

“Biodynamic, Organic, and Natural Winemaking” press release has been noticed in media

“You make it and they will buy it” is a patently mistaken marketing principle. You have to tell the world about what you do too. Even if you think it what you have done is good, or at least OK, you still have to make people aware of it. That’s why we occasionally send out […]

5 million articles read, yes, but how should you interpret statistics on the internet?
