Dear Friends and Family:
We continue to closely follow updates regarding the state of current events surrounding COVID-19 and any potential future impact it could have on our customers, employees and surrounding communities. Our heart goes out to those who have been affected by the virus, and we hope for their swift and full recovery. Fortunately, to date, we have had no reports of team members or anyone on our properties contracting the virus.
That said, in view of recent regional developments over the past 24 hours, we have made the decision to close our Visitor Center at Robert Mondavi Winery, effective immediately. Production and other operations will continue at the winery, but the property will be closed to the public until further notice.
These decisions are not taken lightly. We are working in partnership with our industry peers, local governments and community leaders and are making decisions accordingly. While we recognize that this decision impacts our employees, business operations, trade partners and customers, we are choosing to close our Visitor Center with their safety and well-being as our top priority. All our U.S. based hourly workers will continue to receive pay in alignment with business-as-usual operations, and we have expanded our U.S. paid leave policies to accommodate personal or family health circumstances related to COVID-19.
We will continue to assist you with wine orders, wine club questions or general inquiries via phone, email and website. Please don’t hesitate to reach out if we can assist you in any way.
Thank you for your business and for your ongoing support and loyalty. We look forward to welcoming you back to Robert Mondavi Winery in the very near future.
The Team at Robert Mondavi Winery
