I won’t go on too long about the frustrations all we wineries feel with the situation we’re all in but I will say we are constantly in touch with our overlords at TABC searching for clarity on what we can and cannot do. Sadly, just when we think we have a method of allowing us some way to serve our customers, someone higher up than TABC puts the kibosh on it. To their credit, however, TABC field agents have been trying to work with the wineries.
You all know by now the precautions we all must take to slow the spread of COVID-19 and are certainly adhering to the masks, sanitizers, extra cleaning and social distancing. TABC has us going even further by no longer allowing the consumption of our products anywhere on our grounds.
All we can hope is that “this too shall pass” so we can get back to doing what we do best.
The latest from TABC is we cannot serve wine or allow wine to be consumed on our property. Goods are to be sold only in sealed containers to be opened and consumed elsewhere. In short, we can sell bottles-to-go, that's it..
At Cicada Cellars we believe the majority of visitors to the Texas Wine County prefer to taste a wine before they buy it. Even frequent visitors who have established favorites prefer to try a recommended wine before they commit to a purchase. We have the answer for that, our mini bottles and mini six-packs are the perfect solution in these bizarre times.
All eleven of our current wines are available for purchase in 50ml (1.6 oz) tiny bottles. You may purchase individually or in a six pack of your choice. A six pack with a mix of reds/white and/or rosė is $20 and a six pack of all reds is $25. These also make the perfect gift and/or memento of your trip.
