Outdoor Seating Allows Foley Family Wines Tasting Rooms to Remain Open

Pictured above, Lancaster Estate, which remains open through recent state-mandated closures, thanks to its outdoor seating.

With Monday’s announcement by California Governor Gavin Newsom ordering the statewide closure of indoor operations for several types of businesses, including restaurants, bars, and wineries, tasting rooms offering outdoor seating, such as Chalk Hill Estate, Sebastiani, and many others, remain open.

“Since we reopened our winery estates in June, we’ve already been serving guests exclusively outdoors, in compliance with the state’s guidelines, and implemented several other safety measures to ensure we’re providing visitors with a clean, safe, and enjoyable experience,” said Liz Lease-McCaffrey, SVP Consumer Direct & Tasting Rooms for Foley Family Wines. “While today’s announcement serves as an important reminder that we’re still not in the clear regarding COVID-19, the majority of our Foley Family Wines tasting rooms offer outdoor seating and will not be affected.”

Along with launching a campaign to educate visitors to wine country on the safety measures they’re taking to provide their guests with a safe and enjoyable experience, Foley Family Wines recently partnered with Tock to allow for easy booking of appointments online and via the Tock app. By requiring guests to reserve in advance, FFW tasting rooms are able to plan accordingly and ensure the best possible use of each property’s space and staff.

Each of the following Foley Family Wines tasting rooms offer outdoor seating and will remain open until further notice. All of our properties require reservations in advance. To book your appointment today, simply click here or search for each estate on the Tock app.
