Wines By Design – we’ve moved!

Wines By Design – we’ve moved!

Yup, that’s right!  We’ve moved. We’ve got a little more elbow room and more space for social distancing and just a really nice atmosphere (if we say so ourselves!). We’re just 3 miles west of our old location. Oh, did we mention that it’s an old farmhouse?

Our new address is: 3392 Buffalo Rd, Rochester NY, 14624 (on the north side).  We’re between Elmgrove Rd and Manitou Rd, so those visiting us from the Eastside may want to consider 531 to either Elmgrove or Manitou, or taking 490 to the Gates exit and traveling west on Buffalo Rd. Look for our sign out front!

We are still practicing safe social distancing. We’re doing the middle steps for everyone and asking that if you’d like to come in, please reach out and schedule an appointment with us. We’re taking small groups at this point. See more on our latest COVID update post.

If you have any questions (or concerns), please feel free to reach out to us at info@winesbydesign.biz or give us a call at: (585)235-1090.

Please stay safe!

(Note: Some people have asked: Yes, we ARE able to start wines for you if you so desire. We would need to take a phone order up front however. (And NO, sampling is not available, sorry))

Wines By Design – COVID-19 update 4

Wines By Design – COVID-19 update 4

Update: [06/14/2020] As we move forward into Phase 3, we would like to share our latest plans here at Wines By Design. We are cautiously optimistic about the re-opening and will look to do this slowly, for your continued safety.

We have always been classified as an “essential” business, which allowed us to continue to move your wines “forward” through the process. We have been bottling for some and others have chosen to wait (semi-patiently).

While we would like to offer to continue bottling for you, at this time guidance allows us to open for LIMITED bottling. We know that some of you are eager to return, but we’ll do it slowly. By appointment only (and for VERY small groups – ideally 2 people). If you’d like us to bottle for you, you can drop off bottles, or check in with us if you need some.

As previously stated, we have also begun sampling/starting (again, in VERY small groups – ideally 2 people) by appointment only. We will be masked and gloved, and would ask that you wear a mask as well (and be in good health). You can email us at info@winesbydesign.biz or call us at (585)235-1090 to schedule an appointment.

We will continue to review the situation and guidance as we move forward through the phased re-openings. We appreciate your patronage, and look forward to when we can return to business as usual at WBD!

Thank for your understanding and cooperation, and please, stay safe!

Wines By Design – COVID-19 update 4

Wines By Design – COVID-19 update 2

Update: 03/25/2020

Once again, we’d like to announce additional changes to how we will do business at Wines By Design.

We had previously announced that we would mandate that the two middle steps (racking and filtering) of the wine currently in process be done (for the immediate future) by WBD staff only.

Due to continued guidance from the CDC, NYS, and Monroe county, we will no longer allow you to bottle your wine (for the immediate future). This is in an effort to promote social distancing. This does NOT mean that you can’t get your wine. We would like to offer to bottle it for you. Due to the extenuating circumstances that is the world today, we feel that this would be the most prudent step forward.

If you wanted to use your own bottles, we would ask that you schedule a time with us to drop them off, we will sanitize and bottle the wine for you and then you can come pick it up. We know that this requires an additional trip for you, but it helps both you and us practice the required social distancing.

If you’d like to purchase bottles from us, we would like to offer a 10% discount off of our new bottle price.

As previously stated, we are also open to allowing you to age your wines with us. It will not hurt the wine.

If you have any questions (or concerns), please feel free to reach out to us at info@winesbydesign.biz or give us a call at: (585)235-1090.

We’d like to thank you for your patronage, and we appreciate your patience as we try to move forward during these trying times.

Please stay safe!
