ABOUT THE PRODUCER: Kenny Likitprakong
“Folk Machine wines are part of the Hobo Wine Co. Kenny Likitprakong believes that the possibility for wine to create community, to be history, to tell a story, and to transcend time and place still enchants, captivates, and inspires. In Kenny’s opinion, the wines that achieve these ethereal qualities are produced by craftsmen/women with an artisan approach to growing grapes and making wine, Vignerons who raise their vines and wines with great thought and patience and understanding and are able to instill their wines with personality and character and a sense of place. And, they should be fun.”
The Folk Machine was created in 2005 to primarily be a home for Pinot Noir, but is now also the main venue for our more esoteric line of wines.”
