Gauthier Vineyard, LLC, is a family-owned working farm, equestrian center, vineyard and winery located in scenic New Kent County, Virginia near the intersection of the LaFayette and Washington-Rochambeau trails to Yorktown.
HAPPY DAYS CONTINUE as Governor Northam begins Phase TWO of Re-Opening Virginia today, Friday, 5 June. The biggest change for Virginia wineries is that inside seating is finally allowed again. Seating is limited to 50% of stated capacity. And all the other social distancing guidance remain in effect. We have ample covered outside seating on the wrap-around porch, observation deck and patio overlooking the pond. Additional seating areas are available to folks who bring blankets or camp chairs and spread out on the lawn.
We at Gauthier remain bullish on America, and believe our best days are still ahead. To inject some lighthearted “Spirit” in the journey of recovery, we continue to offer Neil Diamond’s “Cracklin’ Rosie”, AKA Gauthier Vineyard’s chilled Sparkling Rose at $10 a bottle during this summer’s return to the American Dream - an awesome deal!
During Phase Two Re-Opening, Gauthier Vineyard will continue to limit wine sales to bottles only, with the exception of our awesome wine slushies and sangria – cold and ready for your enjoyment. Again, following the governor’s guidance, patrons will be given disposable glassware - if you’d prefer to drink your libations from a real glass, feel free to bring wine glasses from home!
Come enjoy our wonderful pizzas (on Friday evenings and Saturday afternoons), delicious Chicken Wings on 1st, 3rd & 5th Sunday afternoons, and wonderful Winter Haven Oysters on alternating 2nd and 4th Sundays, as well as Terra di Siena Tuscan-Style meats, cheeses and crackers.
So, head on back to the winery and let us take care of you. No tastings will be available in the near term and social distancing must be observed as a condition for the winery to be opened for guests to stay on the property, but we can all do this together . . . . and have a great day!
