See below to see what each winery is offering. You can also check out each wineries website or Facebook pages to stay up-to-date on their offerings.

Some things to be cognizant of:

  • Beginning 7/17/20, per an executive order from the NYS Governor, all establishments must only serve alcohol to guests who have also ordered food. Going forward, you will find different remedies to this regulation. Some wineries have built this right into their tasting/flight, whereas others may have an ala cart menu that will need to be purchased from, at a nominal price.
  • The wineries aren’t able to take groups over 6-10, as space is very limited when social distancing. Click here for more on group policies.
  • You may also have to wait for space to free up because, again, space is limited when socially distancing. A few wineries are requiring reservations (see below) and those take precedence over walk-ins.
  • Masks must be worn in all common areas until you’re sitting/standing at your table/bar with wine. If you have to get up for any reason, your mask must go back on. This is mandated and not negotiable.
  • Each winery is operated differently so you may see protocols executed differently at different locations. All are being as safe as possible but will do what works best for their space and for their staff.
  • Some of the wineries will allow you to bring blankets or chairs to expand their outdoor space (see below), but you may not bring any alcohol from another location. No exceptions! See below for BYO food restrictions.
  • Pets are no longer permitted indoors, at least for now. They pose too much distraction from social distancing guidelines. In other words- their cuteness is too tempting and a quick scratch or doggy smooch seems worth breaking the rules for and we want to be as safe as possible.
  • If you are from a state that is currently on the NYS Restricted list, please respect the guidelines issued by New York State.
  • Tastings are now required to be seated, though this isn’t a bad thing! Your day will be a bit slower-paced and you’ll likely visit fewer wineries, but your experience at each stop will be enhanced tenfold
  • Because the tasting experience has been elevated, the tasting fees have also gone up. You can expect to see prices between $8 and $12 dollars, with some falling outside of that range. Trust me, the new open-air experience is well worth it!

Don’t forget, you can also still call ahead for curbside pickup, and order your favorite wines for delivery right to your home!
