Conn Creek: The Blend Is Greater Than The Sum Of The Wines
If ever there was a winery that blends well with the interactive space, Conn Creek is it. A boutique winery in the Rutherford District of Napa Valley, Conn Creek sources fruit from nearly all of the Napa Valley's 15 renowned AVAs to for their Cabernet Sauvignon and Bordeaux-style wines. But their growing claim to fame is their AVA Barrel Blending Experience, where visitors get to play winemaker and create their own custom blend from the diverse Napa Valley winegrowing regions, then take home a bottle to impress friends and relatives.
The new website, found here, extends the Conn Creek experience online. From the opening Flash slideshow that establishes the brand, to an interactive map of Napa Valley AVAs (suitable for bookmarking at http://www.conncreek.com/Vineyards/NapaValleyAvas) to the extensive section on the unique on-site blending experience:
- learn about the blending experience: http://www.conncreek.com/AvaRoom/BlendingExperience
- view the blends other aspiring winemakers made: http://www.conncreek.com/AvaRoom/BlendGallery
- read more about each blend, and share yours (or anyone else's) blend on Facebook, Twitter, and more
- submit the blend you made in the winery to show up on the site (if it's approved through the admin) http://www.conncreek.com/Blends/ShareYourBlend
Stay tuned for the impending iPad kiosk to further enhance the blending room experience. Until then, happy blending!
