In an effort to adhere to the new guidance from NYS and Monroe county concerning the COVID-19 outbreak, we at Wines By Design (WBD) will begin to implement some new internal procedures for the immediate future.

We have begun by asking our staff to practice social distancing by staying home and being safe.

We have thouroughly cleaned the store and will continue to do so after each visit. This includes, but is not limited to: all surfaces, bottling equipment, labeling equipment, shrink cap equipment, checkout area, etc.

We would also like to 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. We know that a number of you like to come in and perform the middle steps, but we promise to be gentle with your wine and take very good care of it.

Finally, in an effort to practice social distancing ourselves, we’d like to ask you to consider that you begin to age your wines with us, for the short term. It will not hurt it and once again, we promise to be very careful.

If you have questions (or concerns), please feel free to reach out to us at [email protected].

Once again, 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!

The Wines By Design staff
