VinoVisit Launches New Mobile-Friendly Reservation Widget


Date: 10/11/12

Thanks to a new and improved “reservation widget” for VinoVisit partner wineries, visitors to wine country are now better able to quickly book online reservations on mobile devices for tastings and tours at wineries in the U.S. and Canada.

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.

Medlock Ames’ Lauren Rizzolo welcomes the mobile widget. “We’ve been partnered with VinoVisit since 2010 and they continue to exceed expectations.  The addition of the mobile widget rounds out the functionality of our mobile website. The mobile widget works on any mobile device and can be customized to reflect the look and feel of our site.”

Bob Iannetta, co-founder of VinoVisit, is pleased that the new widget is so well-received by client wineries. “We listened to our clients and delivered a tool that meets their needs. The widget needed to function if a visitor is using an iPhone, Android or tablet. Our winery partners get additional reservation exposure across a myriad of mobile sites.”

“This helps the winery achieve their sales goals and makes it easy for guests to book reservations on winery mobile sites or the guests’ favorite mobile site.  A widget providing a consistent visitor experience no matter what device was being used to book the reservation was key. The mobile widget detects the type of digital device accessing its data and resizes and rotates accordingly. Consumers will also appreciate the sleeker interface, large, easy-to-select buttons and quicker processing times.

VinoVisit.com is the first site to offer consumers the flexibility to book real-time winery reservations, an exclusive multiday itinerary building tool, and turn-by-turn directions. The 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 wine tasting events by location, varietal, and dozens of other attributes.
