We are now open, starting Saturday, May 30, for outdoor tastings and glasses of wine!!!

Royal Rabbit Vineyard Outdoor seating open - Curbside Pickup - Delivery

Stop by the vineyard for your favorite wines and enjoy sitting outside and looking over the vineyard!

We are so excited to be back in action and enjoy some of the beautiful weather we’ve been having. We are very excited to be open for tastings for glasses of wine. Curbside pickup, Bottle sales and local delivery are definitely still available but we are looking forward to the chance to see and serve you again.

In celebration of re-opening, please join us this weekend with $5 tastings and $5 glasses of wine!

Our tasting experience will be a little modified in light of the times.  At least, for now, tastings, glasses and bottles are enjoyed outside. Our trees are now to a point where they provide shade to some of our tables and we do have umbrellas if they are needed.

You are also welcome to bring your own popup – we have a nice amount of land available to set it up for a picnic. We have bocce and cornhole for those that are interested.

We will be offering our standard flight of 6 wines but we will be pouring them and bringing them out to you all at once. We will still be glad to tell you about what makes each of our meticulously made hand-crafted wines special and answer any questions you might have. We have some cheeses for this weekend and we will be restocking them weeks to come from our favorite local Amish Cheese Maker: Goot Essa

Masked Required at Royal Rabbit Vineyards

Additionally, Royal Rabbit is monitoring and maintaining the humidity in the tasting room in an effort to reduce the virus viability and lifespan and we will wash or sanitize our hands before serving each customer.

Consumer Restrictions

Consumers visiting Maryland’s wineries are required to comply with the following guidelines:

  • Consumers may purchase wine to-go, or for consumption in designated, outdoor spaces at the winery.
  • Physical distancing must be followed, includes 6’ social distance, between patrons.
    The only exception is for households seated together.

DELIVERY OF 3 OR MORE BOTTLES AVAILABLE WITHIN 15-MINUTES OF THE VINEYARD:
To order 3 or more bottles for delivery within a 15-minute drive of the vineyard in Maryland, call 443-721-6693.
Wine will normally be delivered in the evening the following day.

DELIVERY OF A CASE OR MORE WINE AVAILABLE WITHIN 1-HOUR OF THE VINEYARD:

Additional safety procedures we are implementing:

1) We have adjusted the tasting room so all the tables have a 6-foot distance in preparation for when we can open the indoor tasting room.

2) We will wash our hands before serving each customer.

3) We are controlling the humidity based on CDC guidelines to minimize the spread of the coronavirus and keep the tables clear of any extra objects.

4) Instead of pouring each individual glass at the table from a bottle of wine, we will keep the wine behind the counter and pour individual glasses away from our guests. If someone would prefer, we can give you your own wine glass to transfer the wine from the glass we serve to one that is untouched by even us. By doing this, we will keep the bottles of wine as isolated as possible to minimize the chance of any cross-contamination.

Please give us a call at 443-721-6693 with any questions or concerns you may have.
