Stay Safe while we reopen.
What a 2020! I feel like the last 8 weeks has been the longest 8 weeks of my life, longer than the last trimester of pregnancy at 38 years old! And that’s saying a lot. ;)
Thanks for sticking with us through this time. We have earned support from our most loyal guests and that support has been noticed through curbside, to-go and shipping orders through our tasting room. We’ve successfully postponed many of our events at the event center and also booked a few new ones!
We are ready to reopen again… carefully. We have committed to standards of practice that encourage visitation, responsibility and safety for our staff, our guests and our community.
Here are some of our plans at the Tasting Room:
- We will be open our regular hours and then on Tuesday from 2-8 PM.
- Friday from 12-3 is our Sippin' 65s dedicated to our guests who are 65+ years old.
- One individual will be partially dedicated to ensuring the health protocols adopted by the venue are being successfully implemented and followed.
- We will encourage the use of outdoor space; there will be no indoor seating for the time being.
- Indoor and outdoor tasting and seating area layouts will be modified to comply with the appropriate social distancing guidelines and tables will be limited to 6 or fewer guests. You can pull up your own chair to the table so as long as there are only 6 per table.
- If you choose to use your own chairs, you may sit out in the lawn beyond the Lost Oak seating area. We ask that you maintain social distancing, 6 feet between chairs.
- Floors will be marked to indicate standing areas so as to respect social distancing guidelines for staff and guests.
- No tastings will be offered as of June 26th. We will offer bottle service only.
- Tours will commence May 30th and will be limited to 6 people and social distancing guidelines will be respected.
- We encourage contactless payment.
- We adhere to all food safety standards set forth by the Department of State Health Services.
Our team will do the following:
- Undergo a health screening to ensure they aren’t sick or at risk.
- Wash hands upon entering and exitin the workplace.
- Will comply with appropriate cleaning and sanitization practices as required and recommended by CDC and Governor Abbott. Sanitize customer-contact surfaces such as tables, seats, service bar and other customer touch points.
- Frequently sanitize all common areas and touch points, including but not limited to doorknobs and doorways, windows, faucets, bars, registers, etc.
- Agree to conduct a thorough cleaning of the facility at the end of each shift.
- We will meet with staff before the day starts to review hygiene rules and procedures and to provide timely updates to news and events
Our cleaning practices will include:
- Hand sanitizing stations will be available at the tasting room and event center entrance.
- Hand sanitizer will be available for guests and staff at each station.
- One dedicated staff identified per shift for sanitizing and wiping down tables and contact surfaces, including bathrooms.
- Lost Oak will supply a commercial cleaning product called ACS Lemon Disinfectant that has been recognized by the Center for Biocide Chemistries as a pre-approved EPA disinfectant for the 2019 Novel Coronavirus.
- All tasting lists and printed material will be disposable and single-use.
