Article-  We have reopened February 6!

WELCOME BACK AND GREAT TO SEE SO MANY FRIENDS ON OUR OPENING WEEKEND!!!

GOOD NEWS: We are able to use our indoor seating and are using the current IDPH guidelines for seating and spacing indoors. We will still have outdoor seating with heaters available for those that may be more comfortable outdoors. 

Our staff (DOING OUR PART):  We will wear masks when serving you, wash our hands frequently and wear gloves when needed.  We are cleaning per the CDC guidelines for COVID 19 and are doing our best to keep our staff and guest areas clean and sanitary.  We are glad to see you and will be smiling behind our masks even though you may not see it.

DOING YOUR PART (Thank you in advance): The current guidelines for us to be open using our indoor and outdoor spaces.:  

Our guests must wear face masks covering their nose and mouth so we can all be together…

  • Wear your mask when in serving lines, stand 6’ apart please
  • Wear your mask when in multi stall restrooms
  • Wear your mask if you are less than 6 feet away from other people and not seated.
  • GROUP SEATING
  •  **OUTDOORS: Groups can only be 6 people maximum seated together with at least 6 feet between other groups in all areas.
  • **INDOORS: Groups can be 10 people maximum seated together with at least 6 feet between other groups in all areas.

HAND WASHING: Please wash your hands for 20 seconds and get them nice & soapy! We have hand sanitizer at the bars too.

MASKS OFF AREA: People can take off their masks when seated to eat and drink within their group seating area.  It is best to only take your mask off when  you are seated with your group or if you are walking and enjoying the grounds outdoors away from others.

WE ASK YOU –If you are sick or have been with someone who is sick, stay home please. We will miss you but we want to see you when you are well.

Drink Service Regular hours: We are sampling wine in flights of three for $1 per flight for the first flight. You can choose the three samples in your flight. Samples are $1 each after the first three.  Samples are one ounce. Green Dragon is a $2 sample. Wines can be purchased by bottle or glass, we have beer and sodas as well. NO DRINKS OF ANY KIND CAN BE BROUGHT IN.

Foods: All of our normal rules will apply for guests being allowed to bring in their own ready to eat foods but no drinks of any kind. We serve wine, beer, sodas, bottled tea and water. We sell wrapped cheese, chocolates, chip and snacks.

RESTROOMS: Multi stall restrooms will have signage that states the number of people that can be inside at one time. Our staff will clean and monitor these areas throughout the evening for cleanliness..

Thank you– My family, staff and I are so glad to have everyone at the vineyard again and be able to enjoy our wines indoors and outdoors. I know we are fatigued with so many guidelines but we really need to follow these guidelines and we want to get through the phases successfully and safely just like you do and move on to less restrictions.  We are trying our best to have people cooperate with wearing masks and social distancing but we know it is not going to be perfect,  as individuals we each can do our part as good neighbors.  I thank you for your help in following these guidelines so we can continue to stay open to serve you and move to a less restrictive phase hopefully soon. Thank you- Diane, my family and staff
