Wine tasting is a favored pastime for many, but visiting Napa Valley on a budget has almost become impossible. Well, now there is an App for that! With the new iPhone App, Tasting Pass Finder, wine enthusiasts can now locate nearby wine tasting deals to make their Wine Country vacations very affordable.
“Wineries often utilize such incentives as wine tasting passes or coupons to attract new visitors & consumers to tasting rooms. However, for consumers it has always been frustrating to find a wine tasting coupon only to discover that the winery is located many miles away from their hotel”, says Lalit, CEO of econcierges.com, the company behind the wildly popular iPhone App. “We knew there had to be a smarter way to connect wineries and consumers while saving time & money. So, we decided to create an App by taking advantage of built-in GPS technology available in today’s Smartphones. Now, with Tasting Pass Finder you can instantly find wineries closest to you offering wine tasting deals...The App creates a win/win solution for wineries and consumers”
Since its launch, the app has quickly become one of the top most downloaded iPhone Apps for Napa Valley, Sonoma and Wine Country. The app is currently available only on iPhone but eConcierges is preparing to launch a Droid version of the App within the next few weeks. The company is also planning to add tons of social & viral features such as checkins via FourSquare, Facebook & Twitter. Tasting Pass Finder can be downloaded free on Apple’s App Store at http://bitly.com/dEVpLs.
Tasting Pass Finder features some of the most well known wineries in Wine Country. Users will find wine tasting passes from Domaine Chandon, Mumm, Beringer, Grgich Hills and Castello di Amorosa. Users can also partake of the fruits of the vine at the Francis Ford Coppola Winery and Kendal-Jackson Winery. More than 75 wineries from Napa Valley and Sonoma Country have quickly jumped on board listing their tasting offers to market to today’s rapidly growing army of mobile consumers.
