COVID-19 Policies

Starting on Friday, May 22nd, we will reopen to guests. We are very excited to open our doors back up to our guests and members but want to ensure that we have every detail taken care of before fully hosting you again and that we will have a safe, clean, sanitary and welcoming environment at the same time. We want to assure you that when we do open back up we will be diligent about cleaning while providing a comfortable atmosphere for you to enjoy your wine experience at. This does come with some changes to how we will operate our Tasting Room. 

Here are some changes:

Groups of larger than 10 are not allowed, and groups over 6 will have to make reservations ahead of time. To comply with social distancing standards, we will not be able to host the same amount of people and will be monitoring how many people are in our multiple spaces. We will not be allowing more than 10 people at a time in our Tasting Room and in our Loft seating area, but will be able to accommodate more seating outside in our patio, lawn, and canopy garden seating areas. We hope you understand if you have to wait or if we may not be able to accommodate you. For the time being, we will not be offering any food service, but welcome outside food! 


Here are some more of our guidelines when visiting:

  • Guests are encouraged to find a seat first, browse the menu, then send one person to order at the bar or wait for the associate to come to you

  • The bar is reserved for bottle purchases and transactions only. Tastings will be conducted at table seating only and have changed in amount of tastes per flight and wine club member tasting.

  • Children & pets are still welcome, but must stay at your table at all times.

  • Please ask an associate before moving any tables and chairs so we can keep proper distancing standards

  • Parties of over 6 people must make a reservation ahead of time and are limited to 10 people.

  • The bar and bathrooms will have distancing markers for checking out and waiting in line

  • Reservation are not required but can be helpful during weekends

We want to assure you that touch points, common areas, restrooms, and bars will be sanitized regularly. Our staff will be wearing masks and we encourage guests to wear masks when visiting us. Tables, chairs, and menus will be sanitized between guests. Hand sanitizer will be in several visible locations for guests and staff to use.

We still will continue to offer:

We will want to encourage curbside pickup and will offer free local delivery during the weekdays for the weeks following! 

We appreciate all of the support through this time and can't wait to get back to some sort of normalcy!
