Visiting Procedures

(Updated April 2021)

Thank you to all our customers who have come out to enjoy our Stonington Vineyards community!

The following updated guidelines are in place so we can provide an enjoyable experience this 2021 season for our customers while keeping all of our collective health in mind and is in compliance with all CDC and state guidelines. There will be changes to the guidelines as of 5/20/21 and they are listed below.

  • Please do NOT visit the winery if you have a fever, are experiencing any symptoms or have been exposed to anyone who is sick or has tested positive for COVID-19.
  • We are currently open for both indoor and outdoor (weather dependent) service. There is a limited capacity indoors. We are not able to accommodate larger groups indoors at this time unless booking a private event after hours.
  • We are not allowing groups larger than 8 at one time indoors. If you want to do a tasting, our group policy for 7 or more guests still applies. (After 5/20 groups of 10 will be permitted)
  • All winery staff will be wearing masks.  We require that you wear masks when not eating or drinking. We will not allow you to make purchases from any of our bars without wearing a mask. This is applicable for all guests, even for those who are vaccinated. (After 5/20 mask use will be indoors only.)
  • We will be sterilizing often.  We will provide hand sanitizer at our major entrances and exits.  Please feel free to bring your own hand sanitizer for your personal use as well. Bathrooms will be available and will be sanitized often.
  • Please maintain appropriate social distances with other groups at all times.  This requires 6 feet between groups.  You can not move our tables that we have setup and seating provided by the winery is very limited.  Please bring your own chairs, blankets, etc… for sitting outdoors weather permitting.
  • We require customers to follow all signs and guidelines posted on the property. Failure to comply will result in you being asked to leave.
  • We are allowing visitors 90 minutes for their visit if indoors. This is so we can allow other customers to enjoy our offerings as well. If outdoors, there is no limit.
  • Glasses are provided for customers who are doing a paid tasting.  For customers who will be purchasing glasses or bottles for on-site consumption, you can bring your own, we will provide you with disposable plastic cups for your use or you can purchase glasses for $5 that you must take with you. We will not be reusing glassware.
  • It is now MANDATED that anyone wanting to have wine at the winery (tastings, a glass or bottle) for on-site consumption must purchase food from the winery. You are allowed to bring your own picnics but this does NOT count toward the food you have to purchase. The food purchased has to be a reasonable amount to be considered a “meal” by the number of guests in the group (ie: you can’t purchase and share one cheese plate). You also are only allowed to have wine on-site while you are waiting for your food or have your food. You cannot have wine without food at the table. This is a new regulation that was just mandated by the DCP and the DECD. (This requirement will be lifted after 5/20)

Thank you for your continued support and patronage!
Cheers!
