Desert Rose Operations Through COIVD-19

The situation we find ourselves in is highly fluid and certainly subject to change but for now, we are so excited to start to re-opening. 

Beginning May 15th, Desert Rose will reopen for outdoor on-site consumption as we start Phase One, as mandated by the Governor of Virginia.

Our first goal is to keep everyone safe - from our staff to our guests. Our second goal is to create a space for those who wish to escape the house and isolation and relax in the wide open countryside. 

Here is what you need to know when planning a visit:

1. Make a Reservation
For the time being, we want to create a positive, safe, relaxing area with the best social distancing practices. In order for us to ensure this, we are requiring advance reservations for outdoor seating.
Time slots will be EVERY DAY from:
Reserve your spot via email or phone.

2. Outside Seating Only
We have plenty of outside picnic tables for our guests to relax and sip some wine. During Phase One of re-opening our inside tasting room will remain closed except for the use of our restrooms. On-site purchases will occur at an outside bar.

3. Bottle Sales Only
For the safety of our employees and guests and to limit face-to-face interactions, we will only be selling wine by the bottle at this time. There will also be a limited snack list available.

4. Safety Precautions
- Our employees will wear gloves and masks at all times. We ask that you have a mask as well for making purchases or when using our restrooms. 
-BYOG - You may bring your own glass. However, we will have disposable cups available.
-Social Distancing is important to us; floor markings and signage will be posted for your guidance. 
-Tables are spaced more than six feet apart and are thoroughly cleaned and sanitized after each group. 

We are still currently offering.

2. Free wine delivery

3. Shipping to 37+ States

The entire world is facing an unknown and unknowable crisis.  Our thoughts are with all the families affected by this pandemic, business owners and employees facing economic uncertainty, and every person feeling fear and anxiety about what is happening.  Now might be the time to take a deep breath and know that come what may - the human spirit will ultimately endure.  All of us at DRW will miss you during this time of social distancing and we hope you and yours stay safe and healthy. 

Cheers from Linda, Bob, Allison and the DRW gang
