Please find below an overview of new policies and procedures we are instituting to ensure the health and safety of our staff and visitors.

 

 

Hours of Operation

 

Outdoor and indoor seating for our Tasting Room Grounds is available every

 Thursday through Monday from 11 to 5:30pm.

WE ARE NOT OPERATING A RESERVATIONS SYSTEM

SO NO RESERVATIONS WILL BE TAKEN

 

FALL UPDATED POLICIES AND PROCEDURES

HOURS OF OPERATION: We are open from 11am – 5:30pm Thursday – Monday with last call at 5:00pm. On days where we have private events scheduled, such as weddings, we will host the last call at 4:30 and close the winery by 5:00pm. Please check our calendar for those dates.

RESERVATIONS:  With the exception of large group tastings, we continue to operate as a “no reservations required” venue. All tables are first come, first served, indoors and out. If you would like to schedule a group tasting in advance for 8 to up to 50 persons, we require a 50% non-refundable deposit of the total estimated cost to secure your reservation.

ARRIVAL and CHECK IN:  Customers will enter the tasting room to purchase any tastings, glasses or bottles of wine prior to opting for indoor or outdoor seating. We are no longer having table service where a server comes to your table.

FACE MASKS:  For those that are vaccinated, mask wearing is at your discretion.  For those that are unvaccinated, face masks must be worn when you enter and move around our building or at any time you are not seated while inside. Once seated, you may remove your mask. Staff will wear facemarks while indoors for yours and their protection.

INDOOR SEATING:  We have many areas for indoor seating in The Barns, and some of our tables can accommodate up to 8 people. After you arrive your party may select any table in our loft, tasting room, or beautiful cellar space.  We ask that you sit at a table appropriately sized for your group and refrain from moving tables or chairs.

OUTDOOR SEATING:  Seating outside is on a first come, first served basis. With 11 beautiful acres, there’s plenty of space for everyone and you are welcome to bring your own chairs, umbrella, tent, etc.

 

WINE:  Wines will be offered by the bottle or glass. We will continue to offer self-guided tastings Thursday through Sunday. 

FOOD:  No outside food will be allowed upstairs in the main tasting room. If you bring your own food for consumption, you may enjoy it outside or in our cellar space downstairs. We will continue to sell our picnic baskets on site (with a selection of cheeses, meats, spreads, and crackers). We also offer a selection of soft drinks, water, and apple juice. Guests may bring their own non-alcoholic beverages to enjoy during the visit, but no outside alcohol will be permitted. The Barns management reserves the right to inspect the contents of coolers or bags if we have reason to believe you are in violation of this policy. Coolers are allowed outside only.

CHILDREN:  We have always been family friendly and want you to know your children will always be welcome at our vineyard.  Due to the size of our campus and any unforeseen hazards, we ask parents to maintain an eye on their children at all times. In keeping with current Virginia restrictions, anyone over the age of 2 must wear a face mask indoors.

PETS:  Your canine companions are welcome here at The Barns! Guests are allowed one dog per owner and must keep their dog on a leash at all times. No exceptions.

MUSIC:  We provide live music outside on Saturdays and Sundays throughout the year from 1:00 to 4:00pm. During inclement weather, our musicians will move inside to the tasting room.

GROUPS:  We are thrilled to open our event space to large groups again! Contact Susan Pratt, Operations Manager, for details and pricing at info@thebarnsathamiltonstation.com

 

Above all, we are grateful for your ongoing flexibility and willingness to adapt with us as we work hard to keep each other healthy and safe. Thank you for visiting our tasting room, for encouraging our staff, and for giving us your business!  We know that you have many options here in Loudoun County and are grateful that you chose us today.
