The Pennsylvania Winery Association, which notes that "You're always less than a 45-minute drive from a winery or tasting room" here in the Commonwealth, has launched a mobile website to help people find and explore the state's nearly 200 wineries, and just in time for the fall harvest. Not to mention Pennsylvania Wine Month.  10222013winelogo
 
The site, m.PennsylvaniaWine.com, works on smartphones, tablets, and laptops and desktops, and is part of the PWA's marketing campaign that includes the new logo at right (wine-colored, of course), tagline and more.
 
The site uses GPS to recommend nearby wineries and provide basic contact information and hours about them as well as information about upcoming events.

The goal is to highlight the diverse experiences at wineries and tasting rooms across the state, according to PWA’s Executive Director Jennifer Eckinger, who notes in a release that "however you pace yourself, there is a lot for you to discover" on the state's dozen wine trails.
