Governor Issues Order Closing Tasting Rooms in 19 Counties

July 02, 2020

Governor Newsom issued an order mandating that most indoor recreational activities, including wine tastings, must cease in 19 California counties. Wineries in these counties may continue to conduct tastings in outdoor spaces provided the county does not issue a more restrictive order, and must comply with the reopening guidelines for "restaurants, bars, and wineries", and adhere to the recent mandatory face covering guidance.
