The family at Wilson Creek Winery is not letting the Covid-19 epidemic slow their efforts in reaching out to a community in need. From curb-side delivery to online virtual tastings, Wilson Creek is actively moving into a new way of sharing its world-class wines with the world.
In April, Wilson Creek had 50,000 special wine tasting vouchers printed exclusively for front-line nurses here in the Valley and in the hardest-hit areas in the United States. The vouchers are being distributed beginning May 6, which is the start of Nurses Week, which is especially appropriate this year. In addition, Wilson Creek will deliver more than 80 cases of wine to Temecula Valley Hospital.
“When this is over, and it will be over, we want to invite the nurses who have worked so hard to keep us alive to come out and have a well deserved taste of our best wines,” said Bill Wilson in announcing the effort. “We know how hard they are working and the risk they are taking, and we all look forward to the day we can come back together and celebrate a victory over this devastating disease.”
It is very important to stay connected during these times. Wilson Creek has held two Virtual Wine Tastings on Facebook and Instagram Live with people from around the country joining staff for a tasting and discourse of several award-winning wines. The conversation was lively, and staff answered numerous online questions about each of the wines.
Wilson Creek found this to be a very effective way to reach those missing from the tasting room. “We plan on hosting a virtual tasting on a regular basis in the near future, and these first efforts were both fun and educational for all of us,” said Wilson. “It certainly gives us the opportunity to interact with our customers in a different sort of space, and I think the idea of interactive virtual conversations about wine is going to stay with us.”
Wilson Creek Winery is open for curb-side pick ups of wine and gourmet sandwiches from The Creekside Grill. Customers can order both food and wine online and pick items up at the winery. All social distancing measures will be applied, and all staff members will use current Covid-19 guidelines in delivering your order.
“These may be the worst of times for some, but the best of times will come again,” said Wilson. “Until then we will do our best to stay healthy and will continue to produce and deliver our wines in the best and most efficient way possible.”
