Visiting Policies at Retzlaff Vineyards

We are committed to a safe experience for you and appreciate your commitment to keeping us safe as well. We monitor and follow all State of California and Alameda County guidelines for safe operations, including outdoor experiences with ample space between groups. A visit to Retzlaff Vineyards may look slightly different these days, but what hasn’t changed are our high standards of hospitality and the quality of our wines!

Check-in with our Hostess on arrival. Enter the winery lawn and look for the Hostess station. Here, we will get you started on your visit with us. On weekdays, head directly to the wine shop.

Reservations are recommended. We understand that things happen spontaneously; we will attempt to accommodate small walk-in groups AFTER we have checked-in guests with reservations. We will not be able to take walk-ins of groups with more than 6 people. Picnic table reservations are limited to 2 hours to give us time to prep between each seating. Plan about 1 hour for a Cellar Master tasting and 90 minutes for a Premium tasting flight.

Purchasing Wine: The shop is a charming, cozy place, but small. Please line up at the door of the Retzlaff wine shop when making a purchase and wait to be called in for your turn by one of our staff.

Food:  Check our Calendar page for weekend dates when our food partner is on-site selling their amazing selection of appetizers and lunch items. The Retzlaff shop also has packaged snack items, sodas, and juices for sale. You may bring outside food to enjoy with wine bottle sales on the picnic grounds (along with your own utensils, plates, serve-wear, and napkins).  Note: You may consume small snacks in our tasting area: a lovely charcuterie from our weekend caterer*, deli items from our shop, or small bites you bring.

Help us keep it clean: With all food consumed on the property, please clean up and discard your garbage and empty wine bottles before you leave, including leftover food, plates, utensils, napkins. Garbage and recycling bins are located on the winery grounds in several places. This reduces everyone’s exposure to germs and keeps the property nice for other guests.  

Be mindful: Please treat everyone with patience and kindness. We are all in this together.  We promise to do the same and will do everything we can to make your visit truly enjoyable.

Giving you space:  Our tasting room lawn will allow for ample space between tables.  If you have not made a reservation please call before your visit to see if we are able to accommodate you, we will do our best.

Keeping it clean: Tables and chairs cleaned are after each reservation. All non-disposable items are sanitized with commercial cleaning products. Our staff washes and sanitizes their hands before handling clean items.

How we ask you to protect us:

Respect our space: Please observe our current reservation policy. While here, please maintain distance from anyone not in your immediate party. Please dispose of your trash and recyclables in the many bins located on the grounds. Please stay home if you are not feeling well.

Children:  Children 1 year and older are to be included in the per-person picnic reservation fee. Children must always remain with their adults and are not permitted in the tented tasting area or inside the wine shop. Children may not be left unaccompanied and must be seated with their adults. We do not allow kids-only tables. Children may not use the restrooms unaccompanied without their adult. Loud and unruly play is not permitted. Please come with table-top entertainment for your children. Balls and throw toys are not permitted. Children are charged in the per-person reservation pricing, but are not counted toward the bottle purchase quantity requirement.

Pets: Well-behaved, leashed, and non-barking dogs are permitted. No more than 2 dogs per group per table. Please pick up after your pet. Bring a water bowl and water for your dog. Do not allow children or strangers to pet your dog. Please no bones.

Please no: Pop-up tents, lawn chairs, or picnic blankets (other than for infants).
