Sandhill Crane Vineyards takes the health & safety of our employees and guests very seriously. We are committed to reducing the risk of exposure to COVID-19, and are poised to provide a safe & healthy workplace for you and our team members.


*The protocols we have put in place are based on information and guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA). Because information related to COVID-19 changes frequently, the need for modifications may occur based on further guidance provided by the CDC, OSHA, and other public officials at the state or local levels.

Our employees are required to complete specialized training on new protocols and  job duties. Our sanitation practices will be vigilant. You will notice that all Sandhill Crane Vineyards team members will be wearing masks, we will require our visitors to do so as well.
