Wine Tasting Tab

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Wine Tasting Tab reveals the tasting room fees and menus for more than 900 wineries in Northern California, including Napa, Sonoma, the Sierra Foothills, Lodi, Livermore, Santa Cruz -- more than a dozen NorCal counties. Tasting room fee information -- not readily available on Web sites or on roadside signage -- gives you the edge.
Choose price points of wine tasting room fees that fit your preferences and lifestyle. Once you develop your list and filter it with your choice of varietals and amenities, it will provide directions right to the tasting room door. You can even check out winery details, such as its tasting room style and case production -- and never have to leave the app to go online.
Whether you want to taste for free or be spoiled with a $50 luxurious private tour and tasting, Wine Tasting Tab provides key intelligence to help plan your next day trip into California Wine Country.
A) create a list of desired wineries, choose them as "Favorites" and then let Wine Tasting Tab take you on a tour of these chosen wineries.
B) Wine Tasting Tab is the only app we know of that allows you to choose "By Appointment Only" wineries. These can be some of the best wineries with the most personalized tastings. Many will allow you to make same-day reservations. Just call ahead.
C) Winery profiles that allow you to learn about each winery's unique features, whether it is a small Mom and Pop operation or a tourist-style destination.
Wine Tasting Tab was created by a California wine journalist team you can trust. The author is the former Food & Wine Editor of the Sacramento Bee and a member of the development team for www.sacwineregion.com.
Disclaimer and Promise:
According to the California-based Wine Institute, there are 2,700 wineries in the state. It is our goal to present the most accurate information on Tasting Room Fees – and what those fees buy – as possible. As we add wineries and discover more information – or as you point out errors regarding existing wineries – we will correct and update them post-haste. We consider Wine Tasting Tab to be service journalism. From the day you purchase this app going forward it will be better, more accurate and more thorough than the day you signed up. We hope to become an ongoing conduit between Tasting Rooms and their valuable clientele. We can do this because our data bank is Web-based. We can make changes and additions as soon as we learn of them. We don’t have to create a new version of the app each time we make changes. Feedback will make your Wine Tasting Tab better each day.

Nothing else like this
This app helps you plan your wine tasting tours in Napa, Sonoma and the rest of Northern California when you're at home, while you're on the road, even as you drift from winery to winery. There's always information at your fingertips and you never have to go to the Web to download other info. If you choose a winery that tastes "By Appointment Only" chances are you'll find a great one that will accept you that day. Just give them a call and enjoy this very special category. When you build a list and find a great one, save it to your "favorites" for next time.
This wine tasting guide is a must have!
This is a fantastic app! For all of you wine lovers it is a must have! Wherever we are in are in California on our wine tasting journeys we have found this guide invaluable. The wine descriptions and winery amenities are always on spot. I highly recommend.
Good resource but outdated
This is a good idea well executed... search by tasting fee & county, it provides info on each winery & a link to their website for more info. Only problem is that its very outdated... add $5 to $10 to each stated tasting fee. Still very usefull - just check the various website for up to date fees.
