Hello to all our friends and customers. We hope you are doing as well as can be expected during these unsettling times in which we find ourselves. We have been monitoring the ongoing COVID-19 (Coronavirus) situation and continually review the updated guidelines established by the various national, state and local governmental agencies and the many medical experts on this virus. As a family-owned small business, we are accustomed to operating with handshakes, smiles and hugs. Social distancing is a bit foreign to us and social isolation is just not something we thought we could ever do. However, because of our great concern for you, our staff members and our families, and after much discussion, consideration of multiple alternatives, and consultation with others, we have made the very difficult decision to TEMPORARILY CLOSE our winery until further notice. Our hope is that we will only need to do this for the next 2 weekends, but we will continue to monitor the situation and keep you informed when we feel it is a good time to re-open the winery. We thank you for your understanding and hope you will return to our little country winery ready to drink some Whistling Duck Wine and help us celebrate when all of this is behind us!
To our loyal WINE CLUB MEMBERS who have not been able to pick up your 1st Quarter wine allocation yet, we have 2 options for you.
Option 1 – we will ship your wine beginning next week (3/23/2020) and will discount the shipping fee to just $15 – a 50% discount.
Option 2 – we can process your order, charge your credit card on file and hold your wine at the winery for you to pick up once we re-open. If you decide on Option 2, you must notify us via email no later than 10 PM on Sunday, March 22nd. Our email address is firstname.lastname@example.org . If we haven’t received an email from you by the deadline, we will assume we can ship your wine to you.
To all other customers, if you would like us to ship you any wine we would love to do that. Please visit our “Shop Online” Wine Store (lower right corner of home page) on our website at whistlingduckwinery.com to order your wine.
Thank you very much for your understanding. Your continued business, support, and friendship mean the world to us! Stay safe!
