If you're getting ready to head out on a tour of Virginia wine country you may want to check out what this next app has to offer before your tour begins. The Virginia Wine In My Pocket app can be used on your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone and acts as your travel companion and guide so you see all the best the region has to offer. Some may not even realize that Virginia is in fact wine country, it’s actually positioning itself to be the next big thing.
The Virginia Wine In My Pocket app acts as your own personalized guide to this up and coming wine region. It's a great place to start if you are planning an afternoon in the region, a weekend, or even a full week exploring the different wineries. Instead of doing all the digging and researching on your own you can refer to the app and plan all the details. The authors of the app are Virginia travel writers who are very familiar with the region and its budding wine community. The writers have visited over 170 wineries in the state so they can speak with first-hand knowledge.
The app was updated last summer with some overall improvements and additional content added. It currently has 4.5 out of five stars from users who seem to find the information quite helpful. There are no in-app purchases necessary.
