Dear Customers & Club Members,

Winter is here! We at Sunset Hills Vineyard have agonized over the indoor winter plan. To go reservation only or to not go reservation only? After much consideration and a little experimentation, we have opted to stick with our first come, first serve policy. Why? We want to maintain the integrity of the Virginia wine experience – a friendly place that you can visit on a whim and relax for the day. With that said, we do face limitations with regard to space and government-mandated restrictions. Please be sure to thoroughly and carefully review our policies below.

Thank you.

Sincerely,

Aubry Fisher, Tasting Room Manger
Sunset Hills Vineyard

Winter Reservation Policy:

All seating is socially distanced. Indoor Tasting Room seating is limited, and staff does monitor capacity. Due to space and capacity limitations, we may not be able to accommodate all guests for immediate seating. Children WILL be counted as a member of your party.

Indoor Seating (Parties of 1-7 persons)

Indoor seating is first come, first serve for parties of 1-4 people.

Parties of 5-7 are strongly encouraged to call ahead as we have a very limited number of tables that can seat more than 4 people at a time.   

NOTE: Wine club members are welcomed to make reservations for groups of 1-7 persons. (A perk of membership!)

No reservations will be accepted after 2pm.

Indoor Seating (Parties of 8-10 persons)

Parties of 8-10 MUST call (540) 882-4560 or email tastingroom@sunsethillsvineyard.com to reserve seating. We will not accept walk-in groups of 8-10 without advanced notification. Children WILL be counted as a member of your party.

Indoor Seating (Parties over 10 persons)

As of December 14, 2020, maximum group size is 10 guests. We regret that due to current government restrictions, we will NOT be able to seat any group arriving with more than the stated number of persons, including treating said group as two parties or seating them separately.

Outdoor Seating (Picnic Tables, Patio & Pavilion Seating)

No reservations are required for our spacious lawn, patio, or pavilion seating. Club members may reserve space in the pavilion for parties of no more than 6 people. Guests may bring their own picnic blankets and lawn chairs for use outdoors.

Due to current government restrictions, we cannot accommodate group sizes of more than 10 guests for seating anywhere on the property. Children WILL be counted as members of your party.

Outdoor Heated Options

Our covered, but open outdoor Pavilion is equipped with overhead heaters.

We currently have 5 propane fire pits on the property. ALL fire pits are first come, first serve. Each fire pit is equipped with 6 chairs and 3 tables. Chairs and tables are not to be removed from other fire pits to accommodate larger groups. If there are 1-4 more guests in your party, we strongly encourage you to bring lawn chairs.

Due to current government restrictions, we cannot accommodate group sizes of more than 10 guests for seating anywhere on the property. Children WILL be counted as members of your party.

COVID-19 Policies

For the safety of our team and customers, Sunset Hills Team Members will wear face masks while at the winery. All guests are required to wear a face mask when not seated at a table.

We ask that all guests dispose of your own trash and return all used dishes and glasses to the Tasting Room.

Tables will be sanitized between guests.

All guests will be expected to observe social distancing (6-foot minimum) with any persons that are not members of their party.

Children & Pets

Children under the direct supervision of a responsible adult are welcomed at Sunset Hills Vineyard. Children must remain close their parties and are not permitted to wander the property alone. All guests including children are not permitted near the pond.

Friendly pets are welcomed on the property, but not in the Tasting Room. Pets must remain on a leash. Please remember to clean up after your pets.

Guests and club members are welcomed to bring outside food, but it must be consumed outdoors. No outside food is allowed in the Tasting Room.
