South Australia Premier Steven Marshall has announced an update which affects the operation of wineries and their associated cellar doors and restaurants.

To reduce the spread of COVID-19 within South Australia the State Coordinator has made a direction under the Emergency Management Act 2004 to restrict wineries with cellar doors and restaurants attached to them.

The direction stipulates that all wineries, cellar doors and restaurants located at wineries in South Australia are to close. The sale of food to the public is to stop.

Wineries that sell food commercially to supermarkets and retail stores are still permitted to produce and sell products, but food products must be transported to retail outlets by commercial freight or the winery itself.

Wineries can continue to sell alcohol via online or phone purchases, again provided that they are delivered by commercial freight or the winery themselves.

Wineries are major tourist attractions and as a holiday period approaches, travel to wine regions is discouraged in order to protect these areas from a potential influx of tourists and spread of COVID-19.
