WineMaps: #1 App For Planning Your Next Wine Tour

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of

If you are an avid reader of this blog, you know I talk about wine quite often. Where I live in Louisiana, there are 5 or 6 wineries and vineyards within an hour’s drive. They are not highly publicized and their whereabouts can be difficult to locate. But soon I’ll be able to use an interactive website called WineMaps to track these places down complete with a mobile app.



WineMaps, Inc. was started by Ryan Ornelas, a former IT Director in San Francisco, who is now a married SAHD with two boys. The site is still in the beta phase, but will be an awesome reference when it is up and running. You will be able to locate wineries locally and in other parts of the world. That’s right, globally.


“You can find vineyards in Mendocino, discover the wineries in Greece, choose which wine bar to go to in the city, or find an event to crash. With the help of your smart phone, you’ll soon be able to look for the nearest WineMaps locations, check-in to wineries, write reviews (and post them to your social networks), or map out your own, personalized wine tour,” says Ornelas.

What makes WineMaps unique?
GeoLocation (location-aware browsing). Without even knowing who you are or what wines you like, WineMaps can target your basic needs of finding a local winery, vineyard, wine bar or event to plan your next experience. Once you arrive you can be greeted with social promotions designed to enhance your experience.

Beta signup is now open! 

Be one of the first to use the app by signing up here at for WineMaps newsletters and updates.
