The safety of our visitors, communities, employees and their families is the number one priority of the Placer Wine Trail community during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

On March 15, Governor Newsom prohibited events and gatherings of more than ten people and requested bars, pubs and wineries in California to close for onsite consumption to help curtail the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19). Subsequently, a new statewide order issued on Thursday, March 19, directed all Californians to “stay home or at their place of residence except as needed to maintain continuity of operations of federal critical infrastructure sector.”  The California Wine Institute has confirmed with the Governor’s administration that the new order allows winery and vineyard operations to continue under the Food and Agriculture Sector critical infrastructure plan and some wineries have been allowed to move into Phase 2 re-opening throughout California.
All Placer wineries are still open for operation at this time and wine may be purchased directly for pickup, shipping or delivery and some are even offering some great deals!  As of May 15th, some wineries may begin to offer wine by the glass or bottle for consumption on-site with the purchase of a meal.  
We will continue to monitor and provide updates on the situation on this page.
