Napa Valley winery reopens for business to the public

Napa Valley County wineries can finally reopen to the public, and restaurants in the area were allowed to resume operations a few weeks ago.

Napa Valley County officials released updated guidelines last Friday allowing local breweries, bars and tasting rooms to reopen to the public.

The guidelines are a recommendation to resume operations starting June 12 and direct businesses to provide temperature and symptom screening and necessary protective equipment for all workers. Breweries are also encouraged to adopt strict cleaning protocols and improve ventilation equipment conditions.

The guidelines also state that breweries should encourage reservations over immediately available tasting rooms, and prioritize outdoor dining and lazy pickup service. Tables must be spaced six feet apart.

This follows weeks of confusion over Napa Valley County"s regulations for wineries and tasting rooms, and a lawsuit by Chuck Wagner, owner of Gamut Winery, against California Governor and Public Health Officer Gavin Newsom, alleging unfair treatment by the state over the winery's reopening plan.
