Napa, Calif. (PRWEB) December 1, 2009
VinoVisit, Inc., today announced that it has partnered with Wine Country This Week to syndicate the http://www.VinoVisit.com “Book A Visit” reservation widget on the winery profiles located at WineCountryThisWeek.com
Wineries that are in the VinoVisit.com network will have a reservation widget on their Wine Country This Week profile. Says Wine Country This Week General Manager, Mike Giangreco, “A tool like VinoVisit.com makes it easy to plan a trip to wine country, something we’ve been doing for decades, so there is a great deal of synergy between our two organizations. This winery profile enhancement is just one part of our initiative to refine our visitors’ online experience.”
According to CEO Dan Lintz, “Wine Country This Week is a keystone publication for travelers to Napa and Sonoma. The fact that they have a significant on and offline presence with our target consumers is great, but even better is how those enhanced web listings will improve our winery clients’ online visibility. Ultimately, that translates into more tasting room traffic and greater revenues.”
VinoVisit.com, a winery search engine, provides an easy way for visitors to search, then select and book tours and tasting events by location, varietal, and dozens of other attributes. Winery profiles include robust descriptions, photos, maps, visitor reviews, and (coming soon) video. Real-time reservation bookings, multi-day itinerary-building tools, turn-by-turn directions and closed-loop visitor reviews round out the consumer offering.
VinoVisit, the first reservation system developed specifically for wineries, also provides a Visitor Relationship Management system that: captures valuable visitor contact information, collects marketing and sales data, offers CRM tools and automates and simplifies the reservation process.
Wine Country This Week, founded in 1981, is the most widely read and only weekly publication designed to be a comprehensive guide for the millions of annual visitors who travel to California Wine Country. The magazine and WineCountryThisWeek.com keep visitors updated about wineries and tasting rooms, events, festivals, restaurants, accommodations, art galleries, antiques, shopping, attractions and transportation. Wine Country This Week distributes more than 1 million copies annually through more than 1,200 distribution points throughout California.
