Research on NC wineries revealed that 12.4% were visiting the winery as the primary reason for their trip: http://ow.ly/h1Rq5

 

Do you know why people visit your area? Are you marketing toward that? Maybe they don't even know about your wineries, maybe we need to let them know "out there" or as we say, give them more reasons to "stay another night" with you.

Our closest winery is an hour away, now that sounds far, but when you are on a road trip, and wanting to drive this drive, and see the scenery is it really that far? NO! I shout. NOT'ALL!

I have a winery about 40 miles from me and it has been very successfully used by me. Almost ALL of my turn-by-turn routings have the winery as my anchor place. I now have another winery about 20 miles in another direction and am working it into some new routings. I also use the covered bridges and rail-trails. I need to do more touting of the golf courses and museums.

OK, strange!  It disappeared when I came back to this thread, then MY post had a link (which I did not make).  Just edited my post to break up the word.  I wonder if it is my PC - a virus.  Now off to run a scan!

Yes, there is a reason why someone chooses to travel to a certain place or a road trip to several areas.  Must know what is driving them to the area and use that in your advertising.  Then there are those that are clueless just driving through, that is until they read that _________ is just down the road. 

BTW JB, the link attached to 'your' goes to a cr edit card check.  I am sure that was not your intent.
