COVID-19 Policy

Last updated: October 17, 2022

The safety and well-being of our guests, employees, and community continue to be our highest priority. We're open Thursday - Monday where you can shop for wine and cheese at our indoor store or make a reservation for a tasting on the patio. Our Farm Tour is open for booking and is offered at 10:30 am with reservation. The estate kitchen's Farm Fare menu is offered to all guests with reservations -- limited walk-in availability -- and can be ordered for pickup on Tock To-Go.

If a reservation time is not available, please join the Wait List (available on our Tock reservation page) or call 707-895-2410. 


We have provided training to all employees on any new COVID-19 – related procedures or equipment required to maintain their safety in accordance with OSHA and CDC standards, such as the proper use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), etc.

Our employees are fully vaccinated and regularly self-monitoring for symptoms and take their own temperatures each day before traveling to work.  Any employee with a temperature reading of 100 degrees or higher, or that exhibits any other COVID-19 related symptoms is required to stay home.

Our employees will notify their supervisor if they begin to feel sick and immediately leave the premises.

Our employees will wear face coverings during service hours.

Employees will be required to wash their hands before and after each reservation.

Pennyroyal Farm’s workspaces for employees maintain 6 feet of separation and establish the “maximum physical distancing occupancy” for our space.


Our table locations are primarily outdoors and adhere to county sanitation requirements. Disposable surgical masks will be provided to guests upon request.

Our table reservation area is outdoor and shade will be provided. Please be aware: We are located on the floor of beautiful and scenic, yet temperature-and-wind fluctuating Anderson Valley, and are a working farm. Please plan your dress accordingly and know that inclement weather, adjacent farming operations, country odors, air and road traffic, or any other environmental situations may be out of the winery’s reasonable control.

Our menus are one-use-only and disposed of after each reservation.


We have posted COVID-19 Information signage at entrances with winery/patio area sanitation procedures posted at the door and or in designated outdoor service areas.

We have regularly scheduled sanitization of all surfaces including doorknobs, light switches, employee stations, and bathroom fixtures at multiple and frequent intervals.

We are offering hand sanitizer throughout the winery tasting room.

We are sanitizing all tables and chairs at the conclusion of every reservation.

We have placed signage recommended by the CDC in our public restrooms to remind guests to wash their hands.

Wine bottles are handled by tasting room staff only and will not contact a guest’s glass.

Communal wine “dump buckets” have been removed. If you’d like a personal dump bucket, please ask a tasting room host.

Glassware used for each guest is sanitized and washed immediately upon the conclusion of each reservation to ensure used glasses do not collect in racks or tasting areas.

Daily, a cleaning crew cleans, sanitizes, and disinfects all areas of our facility to encourage a safe environment for our guests and staff.


How do I make a reservation?

Parties of 4 or fewer can make a reservation on Tock for a Taste of Place or Farm Tour. Groups larger than 4 persons are subject to an 20% service fee. If you need further assistance or have a special request, just give us a call at 707-895-2410.

Have a group larger than 4 people? Contact our tasting room at 707-895-2410 or for information about our current large group policy. Please do not make multiple reservations for your group.

Will walk-in tables be available?

Reservations in advance are strongly recommended for seating on our outdoor patio. If a reservation is not available for your preferred date and time, please join the Wait List (available on our Tock reservation page) or call 707-895-2410 as we will contact you if space is available. Our indoor retail is open daily where we have takeaway goods prepared by our estate kitchen.

What health and safety measures should I be aware of before my visit?

All of our guests with reservations will be seated on our outdoor, spacious patio and provided shade and ample filtered water. Due to the temperature and weather fluctuations of the Valley, we strongly recommend wearing layers and/or bringing additional sun protection. There are a limited number of reservations per day based on available space and sufficient time for sanitation before turnover. There are also designated traffic paths throughout the patio and property to ensure a safe distance is maintained between guests and their tables. Our indoor retail has multiple air purifiers and we continue our daily practice of enhanced sanitation for areas of service.

Do I need to wear a face covering?

Guests who are fully vaccinated may visit without a face mask or face shield. We will not require proof of vaccination, but we ask guests to be responsible and respectful in cooperation with this revised policy.

Is my pet dog allowed on the patio during the tasting?

Yes, we allow guests’ dogs at our outdoor tables. All dogs must remain on leash and are not allowed in our culinary garden. We have an enclosed, off-leash dog park located by the parking lot. All dogs must be supervised by their owners at all times.

Are kids allowed?

Yes, children are allowed and are expected to follow the same policies as adults.

Can we still visit the goats?

Yes, on our Farm Tour we allow guests to visit the goats and sheep in the barn -- face masks are required. All ages are welcome on Farm Tours too!
