BeMyDD Launches New Social Responsibility Program for Winery Visitors

LOS ANGELES, July 23, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BeMyDD (Be My Designated Driver), the nation's largest designated driver service, announced today the launch of a new campaign to promote responsible drinking during summer wine tours.

As summer heats up, many wine lovers set off to visit their favorite wineries, but not all of them plan for designated drivers. With increased traffic on the road during summer months and the dangers of driving while impaired, not planning ahead can be disastrous.

"Nobody wants to have to be the designated driver while everyone else has fun tasting great wines," said Arthur Simanovsky, BeMyDD president and CEO. "And unless you settle for a prearranged wine tour that works on someone else's schedule, you either have to pay for hotel rooms or endanger yourself and others. We wanted to make it easy to drink responsibly by providing a better solution."

Hiring a designated driver from BeMyDD gives winery visitors a number of benefits over traditional wine tours, including the ability to set their own schedule and create a truly personalized adventure. The itinerary can include as many or as few wineries as desired, and customers can prolong or shorten each winery visit as they like without being rushed by a guide. Additionally, because BeMyDD drivers transport customers in their own personal vehicles, there's no sitting on a bus. Customers ride in the comfort of their own cars and control the temperature, music, company, and more. At the end of the day, each passenger is dropped off safe and sound at home – no hotels needed. At only $14.50-$19.00 an hour, the service is an affordable way to visit wineries for both special occasions and small outings.

As part of the campaign and to encourage winery visitors to plan ahead and drink responsibly on their wine tours, BeMyDD is giving each customer who uses the code WINERY their first hour of a designated driver for free (a $14.50 - $19.00 value, depending on location). Customers can enter the code when they make a reservation for a personal driver via or the mobile app, available for iPhone and Android. In addition, each customer who uses the code between now and August 1, 2015 will be entered to win a free personal driver (up to $2000 in value) for the rest of the summer. The winner will be selected on August 2, 2015.
