Dear Valued Guests,
We here at the winery are closely monitoring developments around the spread of the Corona virus (COVID-19).
We are in the business of serving people, and in the midst of this Corona virus outbreak it’s important that we give you as much information as possible about the procedures we follow, to clean and operate our properties, and maintain a sanitary environment.
Foremost on our minds is the safety of our employees and our customers, which is why we have taken, among other things, the following preventive measures:
frequently sanitizing surfaces;
reinforcing appropriate hygiene amongst our staff;
following all guidelines recommended by the Manatee County Dept. of Public Safety, the CDC, and the Florida Dept. of Health;
doing all we can to keep our employees abreast of COVID-19 developments.
The Bradenton Area Convention & Visitors Bureau has informed us that, according to both the CDC and the Florida Dept of Health, at present time – for the vast majority of people – the immediate risk of being exposed to the virus that causes COVID-19 remains low, and the Bradenton Area is considered a safe place to travel to.
Unique in this area, our spacious 10 acre vineyard property allows for the individualized spacing of guests and therefore, as of this time, we have made the decision to remain open for tastings and tours. We are closely monitoring all other similar social meeting industries, facilities and places such as malls, theaters, parks, beaches, shopping centers, wholesale warehouse clubs, grocery stores and department stores, etc. and are prepared to quickly follow suit in the event the government requests that all such facilities close down.
The bottom line is that we remain acutely vigilant about this serious crisis. We will continue to do everything we can to protect our employees and our customers, and to remain ready to serve our customers in the most appropriate fashion.
