We thank you for your flexibility and understanding as we continue to respond to the quickly changing county and state health mandates put in place to keep our community safe and healthy.
We want to express our most sincere gratitude and appreciation for you all during these trying and chaotic times. We are extremely grateful for your flexibility in appointment and pick upprocedures, as well as for your continued support of our local business. We would not be where we are today without your support, and appreciation for wine and warm conversation.
Many changes to service in our business operations are based on the updates and new requirements to the State of California industry guidance and State of California Department of Public Health due to Covid-19 regulations, as well as our desire to do our part in protecting the health and well-being of our community.
As you might expect, in accordance with state and county safety regulations, we are practicing the following updates to our wine bar operations. At this time we ask that you familiarize yourself with the changes in service (which we hope are only temporary), in order to understand how the experience may differ from before.
In efforts to protect your health and safety, and properly follow state regulations, the following operations will now be in place:
Glasses and bottles of wine are available for purchase and can now be enjoyed on our premises.
• Wine Tastings
Wine tastings are available for all customers.
Reservations are encouraged, especially when coming from out of town or with large groups. We do accept walk-ins, however seating and service priority will be given to those with reservations. Please contact us to arrange your reservation.
*Making reservations will help us regulate and avoid overlap of people, as well as allow time to disinfect between each party.
• Receiving deliveries
For those of you that are still practicing social distancing, we would be happy to schedule a delivery for you. Deliveries will take place in the AM (prior to 12:30pm). Please contact us to inquire about possible deliveries to your home.
Safety measures and health regulations
We are following the Covid-19 State of California Industry Guidance in order to support a safe and clean environment for both our staff and customers.
Following are just a few of the extra measures we are taking to do our part in protecting the health and safety of our community:
• Wearing protective face makes and coverings
All customers must wear a mask upon entering the establishment and moving about the business outside of their table (for example, visiting the restroom and ordering). Masks may be removed when tasting and enjoying wine at your table or bar area.
The state says that everyone must wear a mask in high-risk situations, which includes when inside of or in line to enter any public space, as well as when in an outdoor public space when it is not feasible to maintain a minimum of 6 feet from people who are not members of your current household or residence.
• Disinfecting between every party
After every party departs from the wine shop, we will fully disinfect the newly vacated area before seating a new party.
• Hand sanitizing
We have added additional hand sanitizing resources for our customers. We ask that our customers continue to frequently and thoroughly wash their hands and continue to use hand sanitizer when available.
• Recycling bottles
We are now able to accept used Nashoba Wines (Cork It Again) bottles for recycling purposes.
For further information and details, please read the current State of California and Department of Industrial Relations Covid-19 Industry Guidance for Restaurants, Bars, and Wineries, found here.
We thank you for your patience and understanding as we integrate these processes accordingly. Furthermore, regulations that we have in place now are very fluid and will be updated as needed. Thank you for your flexibility and understanding.
We are so excited to see you all, and enjoy wine and conversation with our beloved community.
Please let us know if you have any questions!
