What would you like to do?
Thank you for choosing to “hop on” Wine Line! We hope you and yours are well, have not been, or are not being, too terribly adversely impacted by the COVID crisis. This is an ongoing and fluid situation with the “new normal,” and new COVID protocols and guidelines coming in regularly.
We continue to receive direction from all wineries as to their operations. Most wineries are requiring reservations and/or advance notice. If you have reviewed our loops and picked out wineries you’d like to visit (4 max. for your day), please include them when booking, or send them over (4 priority+2 backups) asap, or 10 days prior to your tour date (21 for Saturdays), in order to be more likely to be able to visit them. We will then create your itinerary and make the appointments for your party.
We are striving to maintain our mission of Freedom & Flexibility offered with our “hop on, hop off” service, but with all (or the vast majority) of the wineries now requiring reservations, we now have a modified version of that service, as follows, generally:
Please bear in mind that not all wineries on our website will necessarily be available, may no longer be part of the All-Inclusive Package (if you book it), and/or may have amended hours and fees. Please also understand that if you book a Semi-Private tour, it is just that, Semi-Private, NOT Private. While we do our best to accommodate your specific requests, we must book winery appointments in conjunction with our other customers’ requests for the day, associated logistics (times and locations), and we cannot confirm itineraries until we are closer to the date, or it has sold out. Please be further advised, only in a worst case scenario, we may need to choose the side you visit due to staffing or winery availability and time concerns and again apologize in advance for any disappointment. The only way to be the most sure to visit the wineries you’d like to visit (subject to their availability) is to book at Private Tour.
With the “new normal” in mind, The Wine Line is taking your, and our drivers’ and others’, health and well being very seriously, and have developed various protocols in keeping with the guidance from the Federal, State and Local recommendations and/or requirements.
Some protocols and/or protections we have implemented are:
