Covid-19 related updates

To our valued customers,

During the COVID-19 pandemic, our priority is keeping our guests and staff safe and healthy. As such, some changes have been implemented at our store.

Currently the brewery, distillery, and winery operations including tastings, by the glass service, and purchases are all taking place at the Wine Visitor and Education Center (winery) only.

All individuals in a group must be from the SAME HOUSEHOLD; contact information will be collected and screening questions will be completed upon entry to the building. Maximum group size for indoors and/or outdoors is limited to FOUR PEOPLE (must be from the same household).

All our tour offerings have been adjusted to comply with the new regulations as well as reduce time spent in high-traffic areas. As such, only the vineyard and crush pad production area of the winery are available to tour. Tours are done in private groups only of up to a maximum of FOUR PEOPLE from the SAME HOUSEHOLD.

The following safety measures are in place:

  • Masks are required for all staff and guests
  • Hand sanitizing stations are available throughout the retail space
  • Frequent sanitation of all surfaces, touch points, and washrooms
  • Contact tracing data collection
  • Indoor capacity limitations
  • Tasting stations away from main traffic
  • Disposable glassware is available upon request

We thank you for your understanding, patience, and support in these unprecedented times. If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please email us at winestore@niagaracollege.ca.

Best wishes,

The Team at Niagara College Teaching Winery, Brewery, and Distillery
