“VinoVisit is a natural fit with Judd’s Hill.” says Devin Joshua, Director of Sales and Marketing. “As a boutique winery that requires advance appointments, we’re excited to introduce VinoVisit as a convenient way for visitors to schedule a tasting or bottle blending experience on their computer at any time. To provide the very best visitor experience possible with the staff that we have, we’ve added the VinoVisit reservation widget to our website and completed a profile of our winery on VinoVisit.com. We’re also very excited to be able to grow our customer list so that we can continue the relationship with our visitors after they return home.”
“We’re really pleased to have Judd’s Hill join the VinoVisit.com network of wineries,” says CEO Dan Lintz. “It’s a winery that has really embraced the direct-to-consumer model, creating a vivid presence for itself online, so that they can nurture customer relationships. Their popular video blog series, ‘Judd’s Enormous Wine Show’ has been honored as Best Winery Blog by The Good Grape and they continue to innovate in the realm of social media.”
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 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.
VinoVisit has established co-marketing partnerships with key websites in planning visits to wine country. The VinoVisit Marketing Network™ partner websites garner between 3 and 4 million visits each year, raising the online visibility of VinoVisit wineries. Most recently, VinoVisit launched the Facebook application, "Book a VinoVisit" which enables wineries to accept reservations directly from their Facebook page.
About Judd’s Hill
Beginning as garage winemakers, pioneering vintners Art and Bunnie Finkelstein have been producing legendary wines in the Napa Valley since the 1970s, when they created Whitehall Lane Winery. Now, along with their son, Judd and his wife Holly, they continue to hand-craft ultra-premium wines with the same passionate and intimate style that has been their signature for more than 30 years.
Judd’s Hill welcomes visitors daily by advance appointment for an intimate, sit-down tasting at our winery located on the Silverado Trail, one mile north of the town of Napa. Pat Burke, our Hospitality Manager who has a long history in Napa Valley wine business hospitality, will take you through a sampling of current releases along with a selection of limited edition wines, which are only available at the winery or through our wine club.
Judd's Hill also offers a Bottle Blending Day Camp experience, during which one of our winemakers will guide you through a personal tasting, education and blending session as you choose your perfect Bordeaux-style blend from four barrel samples (two Cabernet Sauvignons from different vineyard sources, one Merlot and one Cabernet Franc, all Napa Valley appellation). Once your favored cuveé has been decided upon, we'll lead you through hand-bottling, labeling and dipping the bottle tops in wax. You then get to take your personally crafted wine with you the same day.
