If you love wine, there is a new virtual tool you can use to find exclusive offers and discounts at wineries and tasting rooms around the state.
The Arizona Office of Tourism and Bandwango has launched the Arizona Wine Trail Passport, a free, mobile phone-exclusive offering to help people learn more about the more than 120 wineries and tasting rooms in Arizona.
When you sign up at ArizonaWines.com, you will receive the passport through text, immediately providing the functionality of a statewide region map and the thrill of finding new destinations. This new technology was designed to be easy to use and it allows users to find many places to sip wine by clicking “check-in” on their phone when visiting tasting rooms. It relies on geo-locations of the individual tasting rooms to confirm the visits.
The passport also provides the chance to win an Arizona wine-themed gift tote with an Arizona T-shirt, logo wine stopper, Arizona logo wine glasses (a set of four) and seasonal, local products from producers in the state. In order to be eligible for these prizes, visitors must visit at least three of the state’s six wine regions within a year.
The Arizona Office of Tourism aims to strengthen and grow the state’s economy via travel and tourism promotion. Bandwango is a travel technology platform that empowers destination marketing organizations, convention and visitors bureaus and other events and destination promoters to provide curated, digitally delivered access to places and experiences for locals and visitors to enjoy.
