Date: 02/07/14

ST. HELENA, CA, February 5, 2014 – WineCountry.com and CellarPass have announced a strategic link-share agreement allowing the premiere online travel destination site for Napa Valley wine-lovers to link seamlessly to the wine industry’s most-popular reservation and ticketing platform. Now visitors to the WineCountry.com website and users of its mobile app can book tastings and touring experiences 24/7 without ever having to leave the site.

The new marketing partnership is another milestone in the growth of CellarPass, an innovative and powerful winery reservation platform that enables wine-lovers to search winery experiences at the nation’s most in-demand wineries, allowing them to easily book tours, tastings and buy tickets to special events from any internet-enabled computer, tablet or smartphone device. CellarPass currently serves the most popular winery tasting rooms throughout the United States, enabling any Wine Country traveler and locals to plan their visits, map their routes, secure reservations, and with the CellarPass advanced GPS features, navigate to the winery.

With this link-sharing agreement, WineCountry.com visitors can search for participating wineries that require prior reservations, view availabilities, secure a tasting time, and purchase tickets, significantly expanding the existing travel tools that make WineCountry.com one of the most visited sites for on-line and mobile wine country travel information. For CellarPass, the agreement significantly expands its access to the community of wine country visitors and enhances the value of its offering to its winery customers.

“We are excited to partner with WineCountry.com, one of the most visited sites on the web for wine-lovers planning a trip to Napa and Sonoma,” said Jonathan Elliman, co-founder of CellarPass. “The link-share agreement is a significant benefit to both our winery clients and the thousands of visitors to WineCountry.com who now enjoy easy, one-click access to the powerful winery search and reservation service that CellarPass has to offer.”

Heidi Paul, co-founder of WineCountry.com, said “Our partnership with CellarPass now gives our visitors another easy way to arrange their experiences in wine country online. The combination of our winery, lodging, dining, shopping, and event information with the CellarPass tasting-room reservation service creates an incredibly valuable resource for our users.”
