Are you planning to go to Walla Walla, Washington, anytime soon, such as for Spring Release Weekend on May 6-8? If so, and you are an iPhone or iPad user, then you need to download this app. WineTrails of Walla Walla is available on iTunes and in the App Store. For only $2.99, youâ€™ll have virtually all of the information from Steve Robertsâ€™ latest book right at your fingertips, and he is promising regular updates to the app as well.
The app is sortable by wine trails in the Walla Walla area, by specific winery names, by appointment-only wineries, by pet-friendly wineries, by wineries with picnicking areas, and by handicap accessible wineries. When you select a winery, the app provides tasting room hours, tasting fees (if any), contact information, a map with the address, mileage from your home and directions, and photos.
There is also a â€œBeyond the Tasting Roomsâ€ filter where you can find information on other things to see and do in the Walla Walla area. And if this isnâ€™t enough, there are filters for restaurants, lodging, gift shops, and even wedding venues. Iâ€™m sure that I havenâ€™t yet discovered everything that this app will do, so go to Steveâ€™s Journal on the WineTrailsNW website to find out more.
Be sure to come back and let me know how much better your next trip to Walla Walla is with this handy-dandy app.
Full Disclosure: We received a promo code to demo this app.
