For use during the Wine Lovers Celebration Passport event, users can use the Texas Wine Lover mobile app to plan and follow their winery trips. The Trips menu item on the website’s Plan Your Trip and the mobile app has a special trip for the Wine Lovers Celebration Passport event that lists all the wineries participating in the event. You can plan your winery visits on either the Texas Wine Lover website or the mobile app.
Here is an example using the website’s Plan Your Trip and the mobile app works the same way. Go to the Trips menu item and click on the Wine Lovers Celebration listing. All the wineries participating in the event are listed. Find the wineries you want to visit and click on the Plus (+) sign for that winery. It is added to My Plan which contains your plan for all the wineries you want to visit.
In My Plan, you can reorder the wineries to visit by dragging the winery listing up and down. If you decide not to visit that winery at this time, you can click the Minus (–) sign to remove it from My Plan. Hop in your car with your mobile app, log in to your account, and your plan is still available. Click the Start Plan button and directions are given from your first winery to the second!
