WE ARE OPEN! :)
Thank you so much for your support! Your online orders and support at your local liquor stores makes a world of difference for our family. We hope our wines were able to help quarantine time whiz right by!
As of now, we are excited to officially be REOPENED to the public, and our tasting bar is OPEN! We hope you also enjoy browsing our spacious gift shop and award-winning wines.
Reservations for wine tastings are not required. If you are visiting with a group 7 or more guests, we may need to split your group in half to encourage distancing, but we welcome all guests to our family winery!
Blu Saffron Bistro is also open too! We hope to see you soaking up the Okanagan sun on our patio enjoying food from the bistro and sipping on our award winning wines.
We know that COVID-19 is still on the top of everyone’s mind, and we want you to know that we are taking this situation very seriously.
With our recent reopening and with the help of WorkSafe BC, we have developed a multi-step COVID-19 safety plan to ensure the safety and health of our valued customers and staff. Our staff are following guidelines from Interior Health, which include but are not limited to:
- Elevated levels of frequent hand washing and/or hand sanitizer usage by staff and hand sanitizer available for all guests.
- Social distancing and limiting the number of guests in our wineshop
- Staying home when sick
- Increased the frequency of disinfectant cleanings, especially in high traffic areas of our facility for customers and staff.
- Installed hand sanitizer for customers to use before and after entering our Wine Shop
- Enhancing tasting protocols to ensure the safety of our staff when handling material during a tasting as we move from guest to guest.
- Installed Plexiglas barriers at our point of sales and wine bar to further ensure the safety of our valued customers and staff.
We are happy to continue offering FREE SHIPPING for your online orders. Just use Promo Code: SIPHAPPY on your orders of 12 bottles or more.
