Supporting Local Wineries During COVID-19
Now more than ever we are grateful for the continued support of our loyal customers and members of the Rappahannock community. Here are a few ways to show some lovefor your favorite wineries and other local businesses during these challenging times.
Write a review
Reviews on websites such as Facebook, Google, and Yelp help people discover new wineries and makes your favorite stand out from the rest. Tell people about your favorite visit to the winery, the best wines on offer, or any special features or perks they should be on the lookout for. Do you remember a staff member who went above and beyond to give you exceptional service? Mention them too!
Snap a photo next time you're enjoying a bottle from home and share it to your social media pages. Relive pre social distancing days with a throwback photo of your last visit to the winery. Check out Facebook groups such as Support Virginia Wineries during COVID. Don't forget to tag us! #GadinoVino
Buy a gift card
Purchasing a gift card for yourself or a lucky friend helps businesses get through the short term difficulties and gives the recipient something to look forward to- a visit to the winery!
Virtual Tip Jar
Rappahannock and many other communities have virtual tip jars that allow customers to send a tip directly to your favorite wait staff from local bars, wineries, restaurants, and breweries. If you're missing your regular visits to any such places, send a tip as if you were there.
Check COVID-19 policies
Each business is adapting to COVID-19 in different ways. Check online or call to see what you can expect at the winery before your next visit.

Wine clubs such as our PMI Club offer many perks to make every visit to the winery even better. Most will save you money in the long run! Our PMI Club includes free tastings on every visit, 10% discounts on bottle purchases, 20% off when you buy a case or more, early access to special events, and extra discounts throughout the year. Best of all, members get quarterly releases of two special wines selected by the owner and winemaker!
