YES- we are once again open for everyone to enjoy wine by the bottle and by the glass, however things are going to be quite a bit different as we re-open. We just want you to know what you can expect. Just like restaurants and theatres, we are only being allowed to do certain things at this time, so it may seem very different as compared to your previous visits to Blue Ostrich.
You may reserve a table for 90 minutes under the pavilion for up to six people. We cannot allow any groups larger than six at this time anywhere on property. That means if you have six in your group and you plan to meet another group here at the same time, you will not be allowed to congregate or move tables together.
CALL FOR RESERVATIONS: 940-995-3100
With all the COVID 19 restrictions in place, we have limited seating right now, so we’ll hold your table for 15 minutes but if you don’t check in it’s quite possible that your table will go to someone on the wait list.
We will not be offering guests the use of our crystal stemware at this time. You are welcome to purchase a glass from us that you may keep OR we are happy to provide disposable plastic glasses. If you happen to bring your own glass, our staff will not handle or pour into your glass for any tastings. Only plastic cups will be used for tastings and for wine by the glass.
We are asking all of our guests this weekend to adhere to commonly practiced social distancing guidelines. Again, his means no groups larger than six, practicing six foot spacing to the best of your ability and no congregating in groups.
Please do not move tables without checking with us first. This applies to indoor and outdoor tables. We will be very rigid about this request. Tables have been strategically placed in order for us to conform to mandatory COVID 19 occupancy and distancing guidelines.
Lawn chairs or blankets are not allowed. You are welcome to walk around the property, or visit the ostrich ranch and the vineyard if it’s open while you’re here, here but seating is restricted to our available table and chairs, AS HAS ALWAYS BEEN THE CASE, no outside alcohol is permitted. The only alcohol permitted on property is Blue OSTRICH wine that has been opened and served by our staff.
At this time of re-opening and a more limited occupancy, we would discourage bringing minors to Blue Ostrich, particularly young children. Our facility and the experience we try to provide has really been created with an adult visitor in mind.
We offer some casual food items for purchase. You may bring food on to the property but we ask that you limit size of containers to small personal coolers. No large wheeled coolers are permitted in the pavilion.
