COVID-19 in red

At Jilbert Winery and Brewery we enjoy welcoming and hosting our returning customers and new visitors alike. To continue to provide our guests with the best wine tasting experience and the level of customer service, we have updated our policies so that your visit with us is enjoyable. 

Jilbert Winery and Brewery will no longer accept large groups (9 or more) or parties in the lower (first floor) public area. Often, large groups create a negative impact on other guests due to overcrowding. Jilbert Winery and Brewery and other local wineries are not bars. We are designed to introduce guests to our wines and offer a wine and beer experience through tastings. Our goal is to offer guests a relaxed wine and beer-focused environment.

After you conclude a relaxed wine sampling, please consider moving from the tasting bar to a more comfortable location in our tasting room, patio or sunroom. This simple courtesy will allow others who are waiting to sample our wines, so they can choose a favorite and then join the fun! 

For those that would like to enjoy a glass of wine after their tasting, we offer a limited amount of indoor and outdoor seating. We do not take reservations for seating.

We do not have the capability to host birthday parties, showers or other social events on the lower level. Such parties are hosted in the upper loft dining room for a fee.

Limited outside food is permitted to include picnic basket, finger food, cheese and crackers, and pizza. No chafers or crockpots are permitted. No plug-in devices. We offer a very nice appetizer menu.

Bringing in your own music for all to hear is not allowed. It disturbs the other guests.

We discourage pushing tables and chairs together.

No Limo/Bus Tours unless there is a confirmed reservation.

Weekends and Holidays are busy days at the winery. Staff members are striving to serve everyone equally and ensure a quality wine experience. We appreciate your patience as you might experience a wait in line or for a place at the tasting area.

Covid-19 Mitigation Policy for Jilbert Winery Banquet Room

Starting June 1, 2020 events will resume at the winery in the banquet room under the following conditions:


To protect all the guests and employees, all guests and employees are required to use masks as they enter and mingle within the building.

Social Distancing

Just as permitted in restaurants, tables will be spaced apart a distance of 6’. This will allow a maximum capacity of 56 guests. Seven (7) tables will be set-up at all times and will seat a maximum of eight (8) guests each (7x8=56) If a party guest number is less than the maximum the same number of tables (7) will be used seating less people per table to improve social distancing. Every party will set 7 tables. (7x6=42) (7x5=35)

 Guests should not congregate in one area.

Food and Buffet Tables and Lines

Just as in restaurants, self-serve buffet lines are not permissible. When serving a buffet, designated persons (with a mask and gloves) must serve the food to the guests. Proper procedures and personal hygiene must be followed not to allow a transmission of airborne particulates and through dermal contacts. No shared bowls of chips, peanuts, popcorn etc.  No squeezing a shared salad dressing bottle. This may require add-on services of the caterer not otherwise contemplated. Consider a boxed lunch approach. This would not require any extra required services.


Lemon water, ice tea and coffee normally comes with the room provided in large dispensers for self- serve.  We are no longer permitted to provide these self-serve beverages unless managed by your catering personnel. No sharing or self-serving is permitted.  In lieu of catering personnel service, you may provide single serve bottles of water, cans of pop etc.  This is okay.

Wine Tasting and Consumption

Wine tasting in the lower level will continue mostly as usual except we ask the guests to observe social distancing between themselves. Because the nature of closeness (across a bar less than 6’) all employees will be wearing face masks along with a face shield during tasting episodes.

Hand Sanitizer

Please bring hand sanitizer for your guests to use.

All Guests visit at their own risk.
