Protocols

Since the start of the pandemic, LangeTwins Family Winery & Vineyards (LTW) has put in place many operational mandates consistent with the CDC and our local health authorities in an effort to continue to reduce the risk of COVID‐ 19 spreading into our LangeTwins community and the community at large. Our goal this harvest is to remain accessible to our clients so they are able to stay connected to their developing wines in a manner that retains the health and safety of everyone involved. It is our expectation and requirement that our guests, visiting clients, and client staff working onsite during the upcoming crush will oblige by these protocols.   

With this effort in mind, we have decided to remain closed to the general public for wine tasting during this Harvest season for the safety and health of our family and friends. However, Curbside Pick-Up remains open daily from 11am-4pm. Phone and online orders will continue to be fulfilled. Should you have any questions or concerns, or if you would like to place an order, please call (209) 334-9780.
