COVID Winery Guidelines

On behalf of the members of the Maryland Wineries Association, our industry welcomes the opportunity to reopen their spaces to wine enthusiasts throughout the state. We’d like to extend our gratitude to Governor Hogan and Comptroller Peter Franchot for their enduring support of our industry throughout Maryland’s “Stay at Home” order. 

In order to reopen for service, Maryland’s wineries and consumers are required to comply with specific restrictions, as laid out by Governor Hogan. We have compiled these guidelines so that our members and consumers are able to have the same expectations regarding the Governor’s guidance.

Existing options to purchase wine to-go via curbside pickup, from Maryland’s wineries remain in effect. Thank you for your continued support of #MDWine.

Winery Restrictions

Wineries are required to follow the following guidelines as they reopen to the public:

  • Restaurant/bar capacity is limited to 50%.
  • Physical distancing guidelines must be followed, includes 6’ social distance.
  • Sanitation procedures should be followed for seating and surfaces.
  • Businesses must conduct temperature screening of staff prior to each shift.
  • Masks, or face coverings, must be worn by staff while interacting with all other staff and patrons.

Additional resources that wineries throughout the state will use for guidance include this information from the Maryland Department of Commerce.

Consumer Restrictions

Consumers visiting Maryland’s wineries are required to comply with the following guidelines:  

  • Guests may now purchase wine for consumption in designated spaces at the winery. We have limited seating, so we encourage you to bring your own. 
  • Physical distancing must be followed, includes 6’ social distance, between patrons.  We have arranged our furniture accordingly and we ask that it not be moved.
  • Masks are still required indoors and when social distancing is not possible.
  • If you don’t feel well, please stay home.

Not all wineries in Maryland will be reopening immediately. Each winery may develop their own set of rules to ensure the health and safety of their staff, their patrons, and their communities. Please check your favorite winery’s website or social media for updates to their schedules and policies.
