Today is the day!
We are finally allowed to open to the public! Could we have technically opened without drink sales as a "retail" store a little earlier? Yes, but we certainly didn't want to rush into the unknown too quickly. So we decided to follow the most conservative route and open on the date the bars were allowed it by the State of Iowa.
It's back to normal, sort of, the new normal looks a little different now. You'll find the seating has opened up quite a bit. We've removed and shuffled some tables and chairs others to follow the social distancing guidelines. There are tape markers on the floor, we're limiting capacity to 15 customers at a time and we're going to hold off on tastings for a little while longer to protect our employees. We WILL be serving a wine list by-the-glass (this week is Fireside Winery!) and our famous wine slushies, though for the moment our glasses will be the disposable kind.
Not quite ready?
That's fine. If the pandemic did nothing else, it certainly helped make us flexible! We have vastly improved our website and now offer over 110 wines online, as well as apparel, accessories & to-go slushies. We'll continue our website sales, pickups and local delivery options moving forward.
This week we'll maintain our shortened hours:
Thurs - Fri: 3-6PM
But we'll have some news soon on some slightly longer hours in the month of June :)
We're open .... excited, nervous and a little overwhelmed ... but we're open!
Come visit us in person or online - we'd love to have you at our little wine shop.

The Wijn House, is it Tara or Jeremy or maybe we'll let the kids write one, you'll never know :)
