Visiting with Safe Distancing
We strive to create a safe environment for everyone. The changes we
had made are to protect you and our staff. We all have seen on the news and experienced many changes whilst
shopping for food or picking up take out. Wineries are the same. The distance you keep from
others out of respect for their safety, we do the same. This includes limiting our time talking
with you, pouring wines at the table or bar, access to the property, and revisiting wines. The
following are guidelines PRIE has established to help everyone to stay safe.
We appreciate your understanding as safety recommendations can change daily.
Distancing and Group Sizes
Whether solo visiting, or as a group, the winery is practicing safe distancing. We ask that
everyone honor the policies and guidelines listed at the winery entrance and on this web page.
- Groups are limited to one to six people. If your group is larger than six, you will need to receive approval by PRIE.
