When you arrive at the winery, we might ask you to wait outside while another group leaves. You will then be taken straight to your booking area. When walking around the venue we ask our customers to look out for each other, waiting to let each other pass in narrower places, and ensuring a 1.5m distance is kept. Our team will be on hand to ensure no bottlenecks or crowding occur and we ask you to respect this. There is also a separate exit for departing guests.
We have implemented the following changes:
All cellar door tastings are now conducted as a pre-booked 45min seated tasting experience.
A minimum distance of 1.5m is required between bookings/tables, measured from the back of each chair.
As you will be kept with the group you arrived with, you do not need to wear a mask once seated. All guests are required to wear masks when not seated and adhere to 1.5m social distancing when moving through the venue.
Entry will be denied if COVID-19 symptoms are evident.
To comply with Victorian Government regulations, we require ALL guests to register their first name and phone number on arrival. These details will be kept on file for a minimum of 28 days for contact tracing purposes. To assist with this process we ask that all groups arrive 10 minutes prior to their booking time.
Staff are required to stay home if they are sick or have symptoms and should go home if they become unwell.
All staff will have their temperature checked prior to starting their shift (by Covid-Safe Officer).
All non-staff/guests who enter the premises are required to have their temperature checked and provide name and contact details, plus in and out time – recorded in the visitor register.
