Cold weather brings closed doors and windows. We care deeply about you and your health and safety, so we have installed an Ultraviolet Germicidal Air Purifier in our Tasting Room ventilation system. This system treats the inside air to remove viruses, allergens, bacteria and mold from the air. This non-chemical application is deadly to micro-organisms exposed to the UV light rays, ensuring air is treated before being released into the room. Our Tasting Room also has a high-efficiency ventilation system for exhaust air, which ensures our air circulates and stays fresh. The investment in this air treatment system is another example of steps we take to enhance the safety of our indoor space, and we continue to abide by all state and federal coronavirus safety and prevention guidelines and directives to the very best of our ability. We thank you for your continued support - be safe and well!
We are committed to providing a safe and sanitary environment for you and your guests! Masks must be worn in the Tasting Room unless you are seated and engaged in eating or drinking. A hand sanitization station is provided at the front door and in other common areas – we ask all guests to sanitize their hands upon arrival (and as needed). We ask that guests first find a place to sit and we will take their drink orders. To ensure that we maintain appropriate social distancing, we will not permit guests to stand in groups within the Tasting Room – we kindly ask you to remain in your seat while you enjoy your drink and to wear your mask whenever you are out of your seat. We also ask that guests do not move or rearrange tables, chairs and stools as they have been deliberately arranged for compliance and safety. We have no outdoor seating, but we will open the garage doors when the weather permits! We also have commercial grade ventilation fans throughout the Tasting Room to ensure fresh air circulation.
Our staff wear masks and frequently wash their hands. Tables, chairs, and menus are sanitized after each guest use, and frequently touched surfaces and restrooms are sanitized by our staff at regular intervals.
