My wife and I were at a wine tasting in New Jersey when it was time to stamp our paper passport books. The problem was we had forgotten our passports at home. The winery owner offered us new ones, but then we'd have to carry around two books. I thought, "why not put the winery passport on your most personal device?" Winery Passport launched a few months later in August 2013.
Our goals are simple: to help you find wine tasting rooms, wherever you are, and to catalog those visits. Winery Passport features more than 5,500 wineries from across the United States and Canada -- more countries coming soon. Stamp your passport at each winery, then record details of the visit, including a rating, photo and other memories, in your tasting notes. We also connect you with friends and family to share your tasting experience, and see theirs.
Winery Passport helps with the complete winery experience: request to buy wine, make a tasting reservation or join a wine club directly from the app. These requests get sent directly to the winery, helping facilitate a one-to-one relationship. All of this has the makings of a pretty good wine app, right?
Winery Passport is your free mobile wine tasting companion application. We've been featured in Forbes, Food & Wine Magazine, Wine-Searcher, WineBusiness.com, SiriusXM Radio, WineIndustryInsight and more. We're also partnering with hundreds of wineries, including Brooks Winery, Cornerstone Cellars, Harvest Ridge Winery, Jordan Winery and Woodward Canyon Winery.
