A New Way to Savor Seattle!
Today, we at Savor Seattle are excited and proud to announce the official launch of the Savor Seattle App, a new way for people to experience food and drinks. Rolling out three different “tasting passports” now through the end of the year, the first passport will highlight Washington’s venerable wine industry allowing users to create custom itineraries of wineries and tasting rooms throughout the Seattle area. The Savor Seattle app is available for download now through Apple’s App Store and Google Play.
For anyone looking to go wine tasting in Seattle and Woodinville, the Savor Seattle app is a must download. For $59.99, users receive $50 in Lyft credits valid for both new and existing Lyft customers, and wine tastings at 10 different locations of their choice along with special offers from winery partners! That’s right, $50 in Lyft rides AND 10 wineries of your choice for only $59.99! Are you a Cabernet couple? Crazy for Zins, Pinots, and Rieslings? Do you prefer a large outdoor tasting area, or an intimate 1 on 1 experience with the wine maker? With the Savor Seattle Wine Passport you select wineries based on what interests you. Each winery has images, stories, and specialties listed so you become the tour guide. Curate your own fantasy wine tasting journey and let Lyft handle the driving!
Using the app is simple. Download the Savor Seattle app through the app store and purchase the Seattle Wine Passport. Once purchased the user will receive an email code to add to their Lyft account and redeem their $50 in free rides, and the Savor Seattle app will upload wine tastings at 10 different locations (of the user’s choosing). All 10 locations do not need to be selected at once – the user can choose all 10 or select as they go, adding and deleting locations at will.
Once a location is selected through the app and the guest is at the winery, he or she will select it through the app to redeem the tasting, enter the code ‘WINE’ and show his or her phone to the tasting room attendant to receive a wine tasting flight. The app also automatically filters and suggests nearby wineries based on location, so users can curate their own experience with the simple push of a button. Future updates will allow users to filter tasting rooms by features such as dog-friendly, patios, and more.
“With more than 12 years of experience in the food touring business and plenty of research on how people – and especially millennials – now prefer to travel and experience cities, we knew we had to meet our audience where they were – right at their fingertips,” said Savor Seattle CEO and Founder Angela Shen. “With the Savor Seattle app, locals and tourists can go at their own pace, visiting as many tasting rooms as they wish without constraint. A wine hopping weekend in Woodinville and around Seattle can be hard to coordinate, and with Lyft as your hip designated driver we hope to introduce more people to the Puget Sound’s amazing wine scene!”
