Dear Wine Club Members, Customers, Friends and Family,

For information on our company’s current policies related to Covid-19 measures please read below:  

Inside Reservation Seating

  • Masks are required upon entry and when moving about the winery though you may remove them once you are seated.
  • Reservations are available every day for our Tasting Room.  You can make your reservation here
  • A maximum group size per table of 6 people. Reservations made for more than six people will not be honored nor refunded. 
  • Tables are 6 feet apart
  • We sanitize the tables and furniture after each use 
  • An Ionization system has been installed into the winery’s HVAC in order to improve the indoor air quality and for our guests and employees. To learn more about this system, follow this link.

We are doing our best to keep our staff and our customers as safe as possible with adherence to recommended distancing and sanitation protocols. 

Outside Seating 

We have patio seating that is first come/first served here at Cinder.  There is a bar just inside our winery at the Southeast Entrance (our “patio bar”) where you can place your order.  You can also place orders at this bar for wine/beer by the glass and small bites.  There is no table service for this area.

Mezzanine Seating

Our upstairs mezzanine/art gallery has 10 seats available on a first come, first serve basis. Tastings are not available in this area, but you are welcome to enjoy wine-by-the-glass or by the bottle.  Please place your orders at our “patio bar”. 

Two Separate Entrances

Our main entrance (located at the southwest corner of our building) into the tasting room is unchanged. Please use this for your scheduled tasting reservations.

For order pickups, flask fills, or to enjoy a glass of wine, please enter our wine bar by the southeast entrance of our building (near the gravel parking lot).

Local Deliveries Offer 

We will continue to offer free, local delivery on any order of 3 bottles or more. These deliveries go out twice per week.

Moving Forward, When Will Masks be Voluntary?

Over the past two months we’ve had a “vaccine race” here at Cinder with cash prizes for our employees to incentivize them to become fully vaccinated. It has paid off extremely well and we now have a vaccination rate of over 85%. This is great news and we are so happy to know that our employees have taken these steps to ensure their safety. 

We continue to watch the community levels of vaccination and will let you know when we no longer require masks to be worn at our winery by changing our policy here on our website. 

Are you vaccinated?  Grab your reward!

If you have become fully vaccinated we’d like to let you know that for the months of May & June we are running a “thank you” to show our appreciation.  Show your vaccination card and accompanying ID at our patio bar or inside our Tasting Room and receive ½ off your first glass of wine or beer OR $3 OFF one flask fill.  (offer limited to one per week).
