Thank you for your past support and for considering a visit to our winery. A lot has changed and continues to change on a daily basis so it would be greatly appreciated if you would take the time to read all of the information below so that we do not disappoint you when your arrive and find out that we are operating completely differently than before.
Retail Operations, Curbside Pickup and Shipping of Wine to your Home
The Retail Shop is open and operating 7 days a week. However, tours and our tasting bars are not operating at this time as these activities are classified as Phase 4 operations that will not be open until a vaccine is found. When the picnic grounds are open, we are now offering a couple of wine tasting flights that allow you to taste five pre-selected wines at the comfort of your table. Make sure to read about how our grounds are operating as many things have changed.
CURBSIDE PICKUP – We will remain open indefinitely for curbside pickup of all retail items including wine, spirits, beers, and food items. Hours of operation for Curbside Pick Up are Sunday to Wednesday from 11 am to 5 pm and Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 11 am to 7 pm.
HOME DELIVERY in MA -We also offer delivery of wine to your home or business via FedEx. An adult must be home to sign for the delivery.
Our Grounds and Food Service
Reservations are Required and limited to a maximum of 6 people. Only one table per day may be reserved. Multiple reservations under the same or different names violates the spirit of the guidelines issued by Governor Baker and puts everyone at risk. Click Here for an explanation of our approach to safety and compliance.
The Vintner’s Knoll Restaurant now consists of our Winery Grounds, the grassy knoll surrounding the winery, the porches, and all patio areas. All tables and chairs on the property are reserved for customers dining with us at The Vintner’s Knoll. The Knoll is open by reservation on Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 11 am until 7 pm. On Sunday we are open from 11 am to 5 pm. We do host some special hours on holidays or special events so please look at our home page or our “Book It” tab to see special operations. To visit and enjoy our wonderful food, wine and beer, please make a reservation in advance of your visit by clicking the following link. You can make a reservation for the Grounds up to 14 days in advance.
We do not allow any food or beverages to be brought onto our property. Per government guidelines, all guests are required to purchase food from our kitchen menu either before ordering alcoholic beverages or with their first order for beverage service. Wine and beer can only be served or consumed on site to customers seated at a table that have order food so if you are planning to stop by for a glass of wine, please be aware that this is no longer permitted by law. Orders for food from our kitchen must be placed before 5:30 on Thursday, Friday and Saturday and before 3:30 pm on Sunday. For additional information about Food Service please click here
Governor Baker’s Guidelines effective August 11, 2020, “Alcoholic beverages may only be served for on-site consumption if accompanied by food prepared on-site. Potato chips, pretzels, and other pre-packaged or manufactured foods do not constitute food ‘prepared on-site.’ For each customer, an item of prepared food must be ordered at the same time as an initial alcoholic beverage(s) order. One or more shareable food item(s) may be ordered, as long as it/they would sufficiently serve the number of people at the table.”
