Bird in Hand Winery took to Facebook last night to announce their plans for the winery moving forward in a COVID world.
To best protect their own family, staff and patrons, the esteemed winery with its iconic doords announced they will be a fully vaccinated venue.
Effective 15 November, Bird in Hand Winery will not be allowing anyone onto the property who has not recieved two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine.
Addressing the situation in their post, the winery spoke on how it will help those in other Australian states as well as the industry as a whole.
“To protect the health and wellbeing of our family, staff, guests, and the wonderful Bird in Hand community, we intend to be a completely vaccinated Winery by November 15, 2021,” wrote founder Andrew Nugent.
“A double dose of the vaccination will be required on entry.
“Let’s help ourselves, our friends in lockdown in the eastern states, our wine, food, hospitality, and tourism partners by getting this done.”
The post saw close to 2,000 people comment in a 15 hour time frame, and has racked up a whopping 1,500 likes (with some dislikes), and 97 shares.
Bird in Hand Winery is expected to be the first of many venues to take this step to best avoid future clusters and spreading.
