COVID-19 Updates

As of 3/18/20

Responding to the COVID-19 Epidemic: The safety of our visitors, communities, winery employees and their families is the number one priority of the Amador Wine Country community during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

On Sunday March 15, Governor Newsom recommended the closure of bars, pubs and wineries in California to help curtail the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).

We are monitoring State actions, Federal Guidelines and guidance from our industry partners who are working closely with the Governor’s office to implement recommendations to reduce the exposure and spread of the disease by limiting visitor access to winery tasting rooms. Currently, many wineries are still open, but only for purchase and pick up of wine and other merchandise, not for tasting activities.

All wineries are intensifying cleaning and sanitation procedures and following the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control and California Department of Public Health.

Most wineries are still open for operation at this time and wine may be purchased by phone or online directly from winery websites. Many wineries are offering curbside pickup and/or discounts on shipping of wine directly to your home.

The Amador Vintners Association will continue to monitor and provide updates on the situation on this page.

Check out our member wineries, local restaurants and accommodations pages to see how each are adjusting their individual operations.
