Wine Spectator: Google Street View Goes Inside California Wine CountryJuly 1, 2015
If you have ever used Google Maps to plot out a tasting trip through Napa or Sonoma, Street View’s 360-degree panoramas may have helped you identify a winery entrance on the Silverado Trail, determine if the hotel you were about to book really had stunning scenic views or pinpoint the exact location of a restaurant in Healdsburg. But Street View tantalizingly stopped at the winery gate.
Now, Google has debuted a collection of 360-degree tours at about 50 wineries and 30 breweries around California, allowing potential visitors to see vineyards, tasting rooms and barrel cellars. Among the featured wineries are places as varied as historic Schramsberg, the replica Tuscan castle at Castello di Amorosa and Quintessa’s biodynamically farmed vineyard, along with Artesa, Cade, Far Niente, Ferrari-Carano, Gundlach Bundschu, The Hess Collection, Lynmar, Matanzas Creek, Nickel & Nickel, Odette, Peju Province and V. Sattui. Wine Spectator has the full story.
