Imagine this scenario: You research every spot in Napa before you hit the road, and then sit in traffic for more than two hours. By the time you arrive, the winery you had your heart set on is all booked up. Never again. Let us introduce you to CorkSharing.

The free new app (available for iPhone and Android) lets you book and pay for wine-tasting reservations right from your phone.

You can choose from some 600 wineries across 21 countries and narrow down your choices by wine varietal preferences, pricing and tasting experience (in case you’re looking for food pairings or tours). Here are a few local spots we’ve got our eye on.

Deerfield Ranch Winery (Kenwood): Beat the heat and go for a cave tour and tasting while you sample one of the winery’s fruit-forward blends, like the popular 2012 Red Rex.

Jamieson Ranch Vineyards (American Canyon): Sip on a reserve Chardonnay while getting a firsthand look at the barrel room and production area from the observation gallery of this winery with a mountain-lodge vibe. They even bring in mini horses to greet guests on Fridays and Saturdays.

Sottomarino (Treasure Island): Here you’ll enjoy your tasting of Italian varietals inside an original World War II submarine training vessel overlooking the bay.
