Music in the Vineyard, Saturday, Jan. 30
2020 Is Finally Over and 2021 Is Here!
As we’ve said perhaps too many times this year, 2020 was an epoch that tried your soul and probably changed your life.
Now, everything is referred to as BC (before Covid) or AC. In AC, we're hoping for a bunch of vaccines and the end to the pandemic. In the meantime, we keep on the masks. As my nephew said, thanks to TikTok, our attention spans have now gone negative and family gatherings are considered protests. Here's to hoping that 2021 is better as the bar has never been set lower. We shall survive the pandemic.
As the New Normal had become the New Abnormal, let's celebrate our resilience.
Happy Holidays! Raise a toast to the season! Salut!

North Carolina has decided to modify Phase 3. We resumed tastings June 20.
For the time being, we will be open under the following guidelines:
•Please Note: All guests must be 21 years of age or older. We request that guests not bring minors to the vineyard.
•We will be offering bottle sales, on-premise consumption, and limited tastings at tables.
•Our capacity is limited by Covid 19 Protocols. When weather permits, we strongly recommend that guests sit at outside tables.
•All staff will wear face masks. Guests must wear face coverings when entering the Tasting Room and when not at a table, and to order or pick up wines. You are urged to wear masks when not consuming wine.
•No groups larger than 6 guests are permitted
•For those guests who just want to buy wine to take home our pick-up option is available.
•Tasting Room Hours: We will be open on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays as usual, 1 to 5 p.m. On Thursdays, we will be open by appointment only for bottle sales. Please call (336.345.1354) and let us know what you want to buy and what time you will stop by to pick up your order (1-5 p.m.).
