Please read below for important information about planning your visit to Sunstone. We do not accept parties of more than 6 guests.

PLEASE READ BEFORE YOUR ARRIVAL:
FACE COVERINGS FOR ALL
All Sunstone guests and staff are required to wear masks to help ensure our safety and yours. Masks may be removed when you are seated at your table to eat and drink, but must be worn at all other times. If you do not have a mask, we would be happy to provide one to you.
All Sunstone guests and staff must practice social distancing. Please keep at least 6 feet distance between your party and others. We have changed our seating layout to ensure at least 6 feet between all tables, and we have eliminated at-the-bar service.
Seated Service Only
All Sunstone guests will be seated at a table instead of service standing at a bar. Seated experiences provide for a safer and more intimate customer experience.
90 MINUTE TIME LIMIT
The State and County Health Departments have mandated that all tasting visits not exceed 90 minutes. To help ensure compliance with this requirement, we will document your arrival time for you.
MODIFIED RULES FOR Pets AND Kids
As you know, we are proud to be one of the most pet and family friendly wineries anywhere. We are happy to begin welcoming kids and pets to the estate again. However, to ensure safe distancing for all of our guests, all children must remain seated at the table at all times, and all pets must be on a leash and at the table at all times.
No Self Service food or drink
Another Health Department requirement is that we eliminate all self-service of food and beverages. This means that our complimentary olive oil, bread and water stations will not be available right now. However, we will have bottles of water available for purchase.
No Lawn Games… for now
For the time being, we will not be able to offer lawn games for your entertainment. We fully intend on bringing back this fun amenity for your enjoyment, but at this time it is safer for our guests to only touch surfaces necessary for eating, drinking, and personal hygiene.
Hand washing & Sanitizing
Speaking of personal hygiene, please wash your hands with soap and water frequently for at least 20 seconds. We will also have complimentary hand sanitizer available upon your request.
*Sunstone reserves the right to refuse service and to inspect coolers, bags and picnic baskets entering the property.
