COVID-19 Safety Guidelines
Updated 1/2/22 at 6pm
Ingleside takes the health and safety of our customers and staff very seriously. We continue to monitor the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation closely. We have created this page to keep you updated of our current policies. Please read our updated guidelines below before visiting us.
- During the month of January 2022, our Tasting Room will be open Wednesday thru Monday from 12-5pm. We will be closed on Tuesdays.
- We are following updated guidelines from the CDC and Virginia’s Governor Northam:
- If you are fully vaccinated against Covid-19, a face covering is not required, indoors or outdoors. Social distancing is also no longer required among fully vaccinated individuals. Full vaccination is defined by the CDC as 2 weeks after receiving the second dose of a 2-dose vaccine series (Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna), or 2 weeks after receiving a single-dose vaccine (Johnson & Johnson [J&J]/Janssen).
- If you are not fully vaccinated, face coverings are required for all visitors over 5 years old. Non-vaccinated visitors must wear face coverings indoors at all times – and outdoors when social distancing of 6 feet or more cannot be maintained. Face coverings may be removed while eating or drinking at your table. Visitors must provide their own face coverings. Social distancing of 6 feet or more is required while moving about the winery, when purchasing wine and when using restrooms.
- Bottle sales are available daily and select wines will be available by the glass. Self-guided tasting flights are also available (see below for more info).
- Disposable plastic cups will be provided for glass sales. Ingleside logo glasses may also be purchased at a reduced rate of $2 per glass and must be taken home after your visit.
- Please be aware that our restrooms may be available at reduced capacity due to social distancing requirements.
- Our staff will be cleaning high-touch areas and restrooms regularly throughout the day.
- Curbside pickup is still available. After placing your order online, call us to schedule a curbside pickup.
Reservations & Seating:
- We offer socially-distanced seating in several outdoor areas. Some covered outdoor areas are available in case of rain. During fall and winter, we offer several outdoor fire pits, as well as several propane heaters. Indoor seating is available on request.

How can you help?
- In order to keep everyone safe, we ask you to please not visit if you are sick or have been knowingly exposed to anyone with COVID-19. If you are fully vaccinated, you should not visit if you have tested positive for Covid-19 in the last 10 days or if you are experiencing Covid-19 symptoms. (Learn more)
- Please follow our face covering guidelines while visiting us (see above).
- We encourage visitors to wash hands frequently with soap and water for 20 seconds and/or use hand sanitizer.
- Maintain social distancing of at least 6 feet whenever possible.
For the safety of our staff and other guests, please do not visit if you have experienced a fever or any symptoms of COVID-19, or have known exposure to a COVID-19 case in the prior 14 days.
These guidelines are subject to change as additional information is received from federal or state leadership. We thank you for your understanding and patience during this time. Your support and patronage, as always, are much appreciated!
