Napa, CA (PRWEB) April 6, 2010
http://www.VinoVisit.com today announced a marketing partnership with WinoTripping.com that will make it possible for WinoTrippers to book online wine tasting and winery tour reservations.
"Until now, organizing a trip to wine country was a futile exercise in maps and mystery. By partnering WinoTripping.com with VinoVisit, wine country enthusiasts can not only compare wineries but book guaranteed wine tasting reservations. With WinoTripping and VinoVisit, planning your wine country trip is cork popping fun," says Rich Ciccotelli, President of WinoTripping.com.
VinoVisit EVP, Bob Iannetta believes the two sites complement each others offerings, ultimately benefitting consumers researching trips to wine country. “WinoTripping has worked hard to visit and qualify select wineries, then craft honest, no-holds-barred, winery reviews and profiles. The writing is witty, entertaining, and forthright, and we foresee a huge fan base for their site. Their readers will now be able to book real-time reservations at VinoVisit wineries through WinoTripping’s winery profiles, and VinoVisit web visitors will have access to WinoTripping’s content on http://www.VinoVisit.com ."
VinoVisit.com is the first and leading site to offer consumers the flexibility to book real-time winery reservations, and boasts of an exclusive multi-day itinerary-building tool, and turn-by-turn directions. The robust winery profiles include photos, video, maps and visitor reviews providing the visitor with an in-depth look at the winery experience. VinoVisit.com, the only winery search engine free to consumers, provides an easy way for visitors to search, then select and book tours and tasting events by location, varietal, and dozens of other attributes.
The VinoVisit Relationship Management system is the first reservation solution developed specifically for wineries. The system manages valuable visitor contact information, aggregates marketing and sales data, offers CRM tools and automates and simplifies the reservation process.
VinoVisit has established co-marketing partnerships with key websites that focus on planning visits to wine country. The VinoVisit Marketing Network™ garners 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.
A Wino's Guide to Tripping Wine Country is a bunch of folks who love wine, and even more love traveling to wineries to talk to the people who grow the grapes and taste the fruits of their labor. We don't have IPO budgets, nor do we expect to. We don't have anything except the love for all things vino and the desire to present the best in *real* content; news, views, and reviews for the WinoTripper.
We do this for a number of reasons... first because we love it, second because the internet needs a virtual community for wine country lovers to get quality entertaining information to help them better enjoy their tasting experience. We're not trying to be another winery database. Instead, we're dedicated to putting the fun back into wine tourism. WinoTripping replaces nose-in-the-air opinions with boots-on-the-ground experience, presented in an intelligent, honest and occasionally zany way. WinoTripping showcases the experience of visiting wine country through the eyes of people who do it for pleasure, and not for bulking up the site's winery roster. You won't find any corporate copy, just the honest and entertaining accounts of wino tripping.
WinoTripping is the first non-gaming related travel website in 15 North's suite of award winning, and ground breaking travel websites. Launched in early 2009, WinoTripping's philosophy was plucked from the vine of the original plant, our award winning Las Vegas tourism website, VegasTripping.com, which has been featured and mentioned in the pages of the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Las Vegas Weekly, USA Today, MSN Travel, CNBC, Huffington Post, Yahoo! Travel, Las Vegas Sun, Las Vegas Review Journal, AOL's TUAW.com, Lifehacker, Gridskipper and many many more. In 2007 we launched the very first (and only) English language guide to Macau's booming casinos at MacauTripping.com.
