CellarPass, an online reservations system for winery, brewery and distillery tasting rooms and special events, has entered a strategic partnership with Yelp.
With CellarPass, anyone searching for wineries, distilleries and breweries can – with a couple of clicks on their desktop, tablet or mobile device – book tasting experiences and tours 24/7.
Visitors experience all of the benefits familiar to regular CellarPass users, including real-time availability, instant confirmations, and reminder emails, all without ever leaving the Yelp site.
The marketing partnership marks the first integration of a reservation-based platform into Yelp’s new transaction platform, and is a major milestone in the growth of CellarPass.
“This partnership is a tremendous enhancement to our service – it gives our CellarPass member destinations immediate exposure to Yelp’s more than 150 million visitors each year,” said CellarPass co-founder Jonathan Elliman.
In addition to booking with CellarPass through Yelp, now visitors can also have food delivered with the integration of EatStreet, ChowNow and Ordr.in, and book hotel stays through Hipmunk.
Launched in 2010, CellarPass is a leading real-time tour, tasting reservation and ticketing service that offers easy and free access to confirmed tickets and reservations, online or through popular mobile iOS app and mobile-friendly website.
CellarPass enables beer, wine and spirit-lovers to search experiences at the most in-demand destinations in the United States, plan their visits via CellarPass’ preference-matching search tools, make reservations and, with the guidance from the CellarPass iOS app, navigate to the destination or special event on time.
CellarPass is national although most of the wineries presently are in California, and in New York. Other areas are being added.
For tasting rooms, CellarPass provides a robust guest management platform for promoting their events to a nationwide audience while connecting with their guests in ways that enhance the visitor experience and build long-lasting relationships.
