COVID-19

 

In light of COVID-19, it remains of utmost importance that we ensure our customers’ and staffs’ safety. 

In partnership with The National Tourist Organisations of Great Britain and Northern Ireland we are pleased to have been awarded the "We're Good to Go" stamp mark in recognition that Wiston Estate Winery follows
government and industry COVID-19 guidelines, ensuring processes are in place to maintain cleanliness and aid social/physical distancing.

 

If your tour has to be postponed as a result of COVID-19, we will be in contact with you and will of course be more than happy to re-arrange for a later date.

 

Dog Policy

We are happy that dogs attend our vineyard events but ask that they are always kept on short leads. The vineyard is a working environment and also home to a number of wildlife species. The experience of other vineyard guests is particularly important and so we may ask a dog to be kept in a vehicle during the tour.
