We live near a wine region and go tasting fairly often. Everyone is masked, seats are socially distanced. Outside seating is available. No glasses are reused, you take the glass with you. No spit buckets, no carafes of water. Individual pours from a bottle. Personal service. It’s actually nice not to have to deal with elbow to elbow crowds.

We visited two wineries on Friday.

The first was the larger, more famous, very busy, with prices to match. No indoor dining, lots of tables outside spaced apart. Masks required when not sitting at a table.

The second was a tiny little winery a bit further down the road. Again, no indoor tasting, tables spaced, masks required when not sitting at a table. Fewer guests, better service, better prices, and we liked the wine better. Bought a couple bottles to bring home.

We also stopped at a brewery on the way home. Same rules, only outside dining, tables spaced, masks required when not seated.

Obviously, going out in public anywhere involves a little risk, but unless we plan to stay home bound the next few years it's worth taking. We felt safe with the precautions that are in place.
