Balance Fairness Calm
You are all aware by now of the California Governor’s call for reduced activity at restaurants, bars and wineries. We agree. The Winery Institute has talked to the Governor’s office and here is their understanding:
The Governor’s closure recommendation applies only to winery tasting activities and events. The purchase and pick up of wine and winery business and production operations are not impacted.
Following the Governor’s announcement, the Wine Institute participated in a call with his office and offers the following recommendations to members based on current information:
- Discontinue consumer tastings and events.
- Allow consumers into the winery only for the purchase and pick up of wine.
- Intensify cleaning and sanitation procedures to ensure visitor and employee safety.
- Implement social distancing in operations, defined as maintaining a distance of six feet or more from another person.
- Follow the recommendations of the CDC and California Department of Public Health: wash hands frequently, avoid close contact, avoid touching the face, cover sneezes and coughs, remain at home when sick, and take additional precautions if elderly or at-risk.
We want to protect our employees and customers as well. So accordingly we will do the following:
- Shorten tasting room hours 12-4p.m. daily
- No tastings or by the glass sales
- Open for wine club pick ups and bottle sales only
All of these measures will be in effect until further notice.
In addition we want to extend to you some additional savings until the end of March.
