With over 2000 wineries in a dozen California wine regions how does one decide which wineries to visit? California Winery Advisor.com, has done the work by personally visiting hundreds of wineries and developing extensive profiles on their easy to navigate website. For today’s savvy consumer the site has merged detailed content with user contributed reviews to create a unique source of tasting room information.
“We are like a Google search engine for wineries in California,” says Barrie Cleveland, the Managing Editor of the California Winery Advisor.com. “We created this resource because there were no credible independent sources compiling information and reviews about winery tasting rooms. Our directory has usable, easy to find, and complete information about wineries, as well as unbiased profiles and reviews.”
To find wineries is easy. Wineries can be searched by region, name, or, with the advanced search feature find by ambiance, amenities, tasting fee, or wine type. One can customize a tour by creating and mapping his or her own itinerary. Wine lovers can find small family operations or big showy estates; wineries specializing in Rhone style wines; those with fancy gift shops or no tasting fees or special VIP food and wine programs. Individuals can even search under dog friendly wineries or wineries with art galleries. Unlike other winery sites detailed winery information is only two clicks away from any page.
All wineries are profiled at no cost to users or wineries. Currently over 700 wineries are showcased. For a small fee, wineries can promote their wine clubs, online wine shops and highlight their awards and winery events. They also have the options to display videos and photographs. It’s free for users and does not require any membership.
With so much competition for market shelf space, many wineries have focused on selling wine directly to the consumer via their on-line presence and in their tasting room. Wineries have spent millions upgrading and developing their properties to attract the tasting room visitor. There are over 500 wineries within Napa and Sonoma Counties and almost 200 in the Paso Robles appellation. Consumers can be overwhelmed without the Internet’s power to research and customize the tasting experience.
Regions represented include Mendocino County, Monterey County, Napa Valley, Paso Robles, Santa Barbara County, Santa Clara Valley, Santa Cruz County, San Luis Obispo, the Sierra Foothills, Sonoma County, Temecula, Lodi and Livermore.
