- Parties are limited to 4 or fewer guests.
- Please maintain 6' social distancing from anyone not in your party.

State Guidance on Safety Measures
- Our Estate Patio and Lounge spaces have been reconfigured to allow 6’ between tables.
- Tables and chairs are disinfected with commercial strength disinfectant before and after each reservation. Our staff washes and sanitizes their hands before handling clean items. Gloves will be worn when cleaning/clearing areas.
- Hand sanitizer stations will be onsite at high touch locations for guest usage.

Tasting Room Staff are the heartbeat of Luna’s business. Shelter-in-place drives Luna to pivot for its survival…finding new ways to engage with customers at home. Telephone Sales Success rate creates job security!
Luna’s COVID-19 Relief Initiative donates a portion of Sales in March and April toward Napa Valley Healthcare Providers. Luna’s visitor center may be empty and the wine country quiet, but nothing will silence the collective resolve of Napa Valley.
Luna Vineyards prides its ethical and business decisions to protect the wellbeing of its staff, customers and club members at all times. Out of an abundance of caution, Luna Vineyards decided to take decisive measures before the COVID-19 directive came through the Governor’s Office of California this month.
Taking Care of Each Other
"Without exception, doing what's best for Luna always means doing what is best for Luna's employees, says CEO Andre Crisp. "Luna introduced an innovative way for Tasting Room Staff to work from home. The Direct to Consumer Telesales Plan charts sales goals for the remainder of the quarter, managed by the Director of Guest Services, James Foster. "With a mandatory shelter in place, our members have reached out asking how they can support Luna, and the best way is to continue buying and enjoying Luna Vineyards wines."
To ensure winemaking and cellar activities continue, Winemaking personnel remain onsite observing CDC social distancing recommendations. Leadership, Administrative, and Enterprise Sales personnel continue to work from their home offices. "Participation has to come from everyone. We are in this together, and Luna staff are committed to maintaining each other's wellbeing, then turning the focus on collaborative ways among departments to find innovative alternatives and opportunities to engage our customers," says Andre Crisp.
Luna is Open for Business
The teams are working together to launch a series of Live Online tastings of its Estate and Reserve wines, pre-releases, and wine club favorites on Instagram, Facebook, and Zoom. “In a virtual space, the intimacy and transparency between our club members, guests, and the Chief Winemaker is a magical exchange. Luna is looking to make the online experience as memorable as a sip of its Estate favorites." says Nisha Singh, VP of Marketing.
The next online tasting event is scheduled for Monday, April 6.
