As we have all adjusted to the COVID-19 realities or enhanced sanitation, social distancing, etc, our plan is to slowly "re-expand" our hours of operation to gradually return business-as-usual. With your continued patronage and enthusiasm for our wines we believe we can safely operate three days a week. Our latest hours will be FRIDAY 11-5, SATURDAY 11-6 and SUNDAY 12-5 starting the first Friday in October (10/2).
We sincerely appreciate your continued support through these difficult times!
As many of you know, numerous wineries have opted to "re-license" themselves into food establishments (an entity that derrives 51% or more of its revenue from food and non-alcohol related sales). We have elected not to follow suit as the immediate and long-term costs of such an action are beyond the scope of what we originally set out to do, provide the best possible wines we can. We don't want to be a "restaurant" nor are we willing to engage in accounting "misdirection" to manipulate our alcohol earnings ratio. This choice may sink us but the costs associated with "conversion" would definately do so.
The good news is that folks are still visiting the area and patronizing small businesses...we sincerely thank you for that! Additionally, the wine areas outside of Fredericksburg have gone from being a "food desert" to food being much more readily available. Silver linings indeed!
We will continue to offer our unique "tastings-on-the-go" as well as other surprises. Please stop in and see what's going on!
