Dear Friends of Standing Stone Vineyards- A Message Regarding Winery Operations from Friday, June 5th to Thursday, June 11th

We are excited to welcome you back to the Winery! At Standing Stone Vineyards we take pride in our farm & wine and we thrive on our relationship with our patrons and friends. Therefore, we are reopening with a mindful, welcoming and hospitable approach. We plan to open slowly and in a way that will ensure the safety of our staff and customers while offering a meaningful experience. We are aware that people’s comfort levels vary regarding travel and safety and we want you to know that we are always committed to excellence: in health & safety, hospitality, and wine quality. 

For now, (June 4th-June 11th) we are offering wine bottle sales at the winery, but are anticipating welcoming you to a new tasting experience sometime soon. This weekend (June 5th, 6th & 7th), we will have appropriately spaced picnic tables alongside our vineyard. You are welcome to purchase a chilled bottle to enjoy at one of these tables. We encourage you to bring your own glassware, but we will have compostable cups that can be used as well. Seating is first come, first served, and the maximum number of guests in a party is limited to 4. There will be no facilities available for use at this time as the winery building will remain closed.

We are hoping that starting June 12th, we will be able to offer outdoor seating service with a by-the-glass program. Tables will be available by reservation only in an effort to follow all social distancing recommendations and create a positive experience for both our staff and guests. At the moment, we are currently taking reservation requests at – you can email us to request a reservation that we will confirm as soon as we are able. Please sign-up for our newsletter or visit our website for continued updates. 

We will follow the CDC and State of NY guidelines, all while ensuring that your time at Wiemer is as memorable and special as it always has been. We are looking forward to welcoming you back to the Winery to relax, connect, and share our love of wine and the Finger Lakes. 

Standing Stone Vineyards is more to us than a winery, it’s a place of comfort, a place of cheer for staff and guests alike, so please reach out and ask if you have any questions. We truly appreciate your patronage and your cooperation and understanding during these testing times.

  • Masks that cover nose and mouth are required for entry on the property and will be required while not at your seat.
