Webcams: put it on your list

The post with links to the Scottish distillery the other day was very remarkable in the sense that not only do they have webcams of what appears to be the entire process they employ, but more importantly a schedule of when they will be performing various actions in their cellar.

But why haven't more wineries taken this approach, and made this available?

Even if the argument is that daily activities vary, and it'd be difficult to follow a set schedule - wineries should get some video of their operations in the cellar, field, bottling, etc., and post links on their sites. They could control the environment the videos are produced in, wouldn't need to have "live" feed which might compromise their "house style", and yet would draw tons of interest...

Why hasn't this been promoted for wineries?!?!?!

This is a fantastic idea, and I really wish you'd just keep quiet about it. ;-)

You guys need this on your "to do" list also...

...could be yet another great way to generate interest in the consumer base.
Since you're just starting up, I assume we'll all see this on your website when you've got the cameras installed? It might entail a bit more bandwith than just a simple informative page would, and a bit faster connection too, but that's the sort of thing that brings people back time & again.
(It's also the type of thing where links gets spread thru email all over the place!)

Looking forward to seeing it!
