Winery Rules re: COVID 19: Please make sure your guests are aware of the below rules. The State of NY and the wineries are strictly adhering to them.
Masks: Guests must have masks on at all times, except when seated at their table. While at the table guests may remove masks.
Wine drinking can occur at the table only, and while seated only. Guests are not allowed to walk around the winery premises with wine glasses or open bottles.
In general walking/wandering around the winery premises is not allowed for COVID 19 safety. However, you can take pictures on your way in or out of the winery (arriving or departing).
Tables may be limited to 6 guests per table, unless otherwise indicated. Groups of 6+ may be seated at 2 separate tables or in a private room or area.
Guests are not allowed to mix and mingle table-to-table with other guests while standing at tables that they are not seated at.
Each guest must have food with their wine at the initial sit down for tasting. Most of the wineries facilitate this by adding a small snack (chips or pretzels etc) for each guest. Lunches brought in for guests at eligible wineries also qualify for this requirement. Most guests satisfy this requirement by simply ordering from the winery food menu.
