The survey, conducted amongst travellers across the globe, reveals that 65% of tourists have already been on a wine & food trip and 72% have been on wine trips 3 times or more.
Extremely obvious is the need for the tour activity industry to come online, with 76% of the tourists booking online and 34% using Social Media channels for research purposes. One of the most exciting outcomes of this survey is that up to 51% will book activities on the spot. This makes Winerist's job even more relevant as there is an evident need for a marketplace which connects local experts and experience providers with the traveller seeking authentic, off the beaten track stays and activities.
The Winerist Survey reveals some interesting facts for wine industry players too.
