OPEN FOR U PICK GRAPES ONLY!

Sept. 4, 2020:  U Pick Grape season will open on Monday, Sept. 7 from 8am – 4pm.   We will be open for U Pick Grapes Monday – Saturday from 8am – 4pm (weather permitting) through the month of September.  Covid safety measures as mandated by the county will be in effect.  The retail shop and vineyard grounds remain closed at least through October.

 

 

July 22, 2020:  According to the SC DHEC, the number of new covid cases for July will exceed 60,000 (not 45,000 as projected three weeks ago), and the average rate of new covid infection currently is 20%, or 1 in every 5 individuals tested.  SC DHEC’s current estimate for new covid cases in August is 17,651 per week (or 78,000+ for the month.)    It is heartbreaking to see this ongoing precipitous rise in covid cases.  So unnecessary and avoidable.    La Belle Amie Vineyard will remain closed at least through October.  Keep your distance, wear your mask, wash your hands.  Stay super safe!  Vicki, Owner.

 

June 30, 2020:  According to the SC DHEC, the number of new covid cases will increase to 45,000+ for July, and the average rate of new covid infection currently is 1 in every 6 individuals tested.  La Belle Amie Vineyard will remain closed at least through August.  Keep your distance, wear your mask, wash your hands.  Stay super safe!  Vicki, Owner.

 

June 17. 2020:   According to the SC DHEC, the number of new daily covid cases substantially increased to 20,000 + each month, and the average rate of covid infection has doubled in the past two weeks.  La Belle Amie Vineyard will remain closed at least through July.  Keep your distance, wear your mask, wash your hands.  Stay super safe!  Vicki, Owner.

 

May 3, 2020:  La Belle Amie Vineyard will remain closed until it is safe for our staff and customers to congregate.  Social interaction among the customers, musicians, staff and us is the very core of our daily operations.  Its what gives purpose and motivation for those who visit, and re-visit, La Belle Amie Vineyard.  Our vineyard gatherings have been deeply gratifying to many for years.  

But, covid infections and deaths are still occurring at an alarming rate, and the public health “protections” in place today are the same as existed on March 14, 2020, the last day we were open.  Worse, the covid contagion is more pervasive today than seven weeks ago.  During a time of increased risk of infection absent any public health protections how can we possibly re-open and not subject some or all of the hundreds who would socially gather here each day to this invisible killer? 

We harbor hope that a vaccine/remedy will be developed so that society as we knew it can begin its resurgence.  That may take many months, and we hate that it may be that long before we see you again.   However, with an abundance of caution for all– staff, musicians, customers, friends and us– we choose to remain closed until effective and accessible public health protections exist for your welfare, and ours.

Please be cautious and stay safe.  We miss all of you very much and look forward to sharing a glass of wine together down the road.
