Biltmore asked us to design and launch a mobile version of their Virtual Sommelier, and it just launched today. The Biltmore is very excited! This will be the first of many mobile sites for them.
Everything looks great! We’re very excited to launch our first mobile web app! Please thank your team for all their great work on this project.
Mobile websites are coming on strong, and can really do a lot for a business. Everyone has some sort of mobile device attached to their hand. Making our clients ready to receive all of this consumer traffic is a must.
We also created a QR code for Biltmore Wines to place on products in grocery stores across the country. This helps consumers zap their way straight to our new Virtual Sommelier. (For more information about what QR Codes are and how useful they can be, see our blog post here.) Mobile sites go hand in hand with these convenient super codes.
The mobile site that we built for Biltmore is an adaptation of their desktop Virtual Sommelier. A “sommelier” is a wine waiter. The website offers information and suggestions about wine pairings with different foods. It can be a great help when you find yourself in a store staring at shelves full of wine, but just don’t know which kind would be perfect with those Coconut Shrimp you were planning to serve with dinner. (Biltmore suggests their Sec or Century White Wine for that particular dish, in case you were really curious.)
You can play around with the desktop version here. Or, you can use this QR Code and check out the mobile site for yourself!
Let us know what you think about the mobile site in the comments section below or on Twitter @RiversAgency. We always love feedback!
