Wine lovers in Toronto, New York and from anywhere in North America are now able to quickly book online reservations for tastings and tours at wineries in the Ontario wine region with the VinoVisit reservation system being featured by Wine Country Ontario.
“VinoVisit was an easy choice. Wine Country Ontario wanted a reliable, efficient tasting room management solution for our wineries, and of the options available in the marketplace, VinoVisit was the clear-cut winner. We are pleased that over the next few months, participating wineries will be able to accept online reservations,” said Ed Madronich, Chair of the Wine Council and President of Flat Rock Cellars.
“The consumer should come first, and this travel tool was designed with consumers in mind. At Flat Rock Cellars we look forward to having visitors use this booking system during the busy summer and fall seasons,” added Madronich.
Bob Iannetta, co-founder of VinoVisit, hopes that more wine regions will follow suit. “An important role of wine associations is to help build a vibrant wine tourism industry. Being committed to attracting new guests, streamlining the process of making reservations and capturing key contact information for future marketing efforts are all key elements in helping wineries to achieve their goals. Wine Country Ontario is clearly dedicated to promoting their region as a wine country destination.”
