Winery Finder, social networking mobile app, announced an alliance last week with VinoVisit, which provides real-time reservations at wineries in Sonoma and Napa counties.

Available on both the iPhone and Android, the Winery Finder app now enables visitors to make online reservations with more than 150 participating wineries. In addition, it allows guests to check-in via Facebook, Twitter and Foursquare, a tool that can be used by wineries to conduct social media marketing campaigns.

"This partnership brings tremendous value to wineries and consumers alike," Lalit Kumar, co-founder and CEO of Winery Finder, said in a statement.

VinoVisit co-founder Bob Iannetta concurred. "Our mobile online reservation capabilities add to the functionality of the Winery Finder app. It makes it that much easier for wine lovers to plan their trips," Iannetta said in a statement.
