“Atmosphere” is a critical aspect of the popularity of Breweries, Wineries, and Entertainment Venues… it is usually the atmosphere and experience that brings people back again and again… But how do you go about convincing people who have never visited your venue, that is it worth a look in the first place ??

A Virtual Tour can provide an Innovative, Interesting, and Interactive way for your potential patrons to get a “taste” of the experience you have on offer…

Virtual Tour Versus Guided Tour

Breweries and Wineries often offer Guided Tours to visitors, to allow them to experience their operations and facilities. Guided Tours are a fantastic way to show patrons how your facility works, provide an emotional attachment to your products, and present sales opportunities… However, a Real-Life Guided Tour can sometimes be a disappointment because for various reasons it is not always possible to show the full capabilities of your operations …

  • Health and Safety – it is not always possible to provide access to certain parts of your operations because of health and safety concerns
  • Operational Shutdowns – for various reasons, parts of your operation may not be functioning (e.g. equipment failure, maintenance)
  • Day / Time of Year Shutdowns – There may be seasonal, time-based, or raw material limiting reasons why some or all of your operations may not be functioning

A Virtual Tour allows visitors to see the full extent of your operations any time they choose – allowing you to showcase it at an optimal time and provide a fuller experience.

Benefits of Virtual Tours

360° Photos, 360° Video and Virtual Tours offer unique benefits (over traditional media like photos and video) which make them extremely effective at showcasing and promoting Entertainment Venues such as Breweries and Wineries :

  • Innovation – Offer a very impressive “wow” factor
  • Connectivity & Accessibility – Provide a spatial awareness that is not possible with most other forms of marketing. Virtual Tours can be used by anyone with internet access via a variety of devices (mobile, desktop, VR Headset)…
  • Experiential  & Interactive – Offer an “experience” based interface, where users get to Interact and actually participate. This provides a level of emotional attachment not available through traditional media (photos and video)
  • Dynamic – you are able to show the same space setup for different types of events – e.g. Party, Private Function, Live Band, Dance Hall….
  • Inspirational – Offer a “taste” of the experience and provide insights into what is on offer, which very often results in anI want to see more” moment. 
  • Recycle – Virtual Tours are able to incorporate and reference existing content (information, Photos, Video, Stories, Links, Audio, etc…) .
  • Extendable – can very easily be updated, modified and improved to update or add extra activities and experiences
