Come Monday June 1, South Australia’s restrictions surrounding hospitality venues will once again be changing, but standing between us and Monday are two whole days with no direction on where to go for your winery fix.
Basically if you’re a business that normally sells food and beverages, you can open, and if you have a liquor licence, you can serve alcohol with meals.
Keep in mind you also have to complete the COVIDSafe training.
The limits are the same, 10 people indoors and 10 outdoors, and you must be seated if you’re being served food and alcohol.
With these limited seating options, booking ahead is an absolute must.
So, without further ado, here are a few wineries that are opening this weekend!
