2020 California Juice Bucket Update

We met with our supplier yesterday to discuss the availability and pricing of California juice buckets. While the availability of juice & grapes is sufficient for our needs, the cost of shipping remains outrageous. In order to have the buckets delivered to our location, the price per bucket would be over $110. We believe this price is unfair to you. We do not believe we would receive enough orders to meet the minimum purchase requirement. We decided to not offer juice buckets for this season. We appreciate your understanding of our decision.

 

If you are looking for an alternative to fresh juice, we would be happy to talk with you about our line of reasonably priced wine kits. Please contact us if you have questions or need additional information. Email: amwinesupply@gmail.com. Phone: 724.222.9463. Thank you again for understanding.

You do not need to place an order in advance…however, if you would like to email an order to us (especially a grain order) we would be happy to prepare it in advance and have it ready for purchase.

Our Staff & Facility are prepared to serve you, while adhering to CDC guidelines. We have had to make several changes in the tasting room. Our number of seats have been greatly reduced. We respectfully request that you limit your experience with us to one hour. We will be releasing a new format for wine tastings on Friday 6/12/20. We have a temporary procedure in place at this time. We ask for your cooperation & understanding as we navigate new procedures based on CDC guidelines. We may need to make additional adjustments to our procedures to better serve you. We will keep you informed on our FB page and website.

John & I greatly appreciate everyone who shopped with us during the restrictions, and look forward to seeing and talking with all of you on your next visit! Our shelves are stocked, and we will continue to build inventory each week. We appreciate your patience and understanding. Cheers!

Temporary Changes – Updated 4/25/20

Per Governor Wolf and for the best interest of the public, A&M and The Washington Winery will be closed for regular business until advised. We will not offer wine tastings or congregating in our tasting room at this time.

 

However, we will be present at our store MONDAY thru SATURDAY, 12-6PM, and we will accept orders for both bottled wine, and wine & beer supplies. We are offering pickup service, or allowing one person at a time into our store, or are offering delivery (to a limited area, with a minimum purchase).

If you would like to place an order for wine or beer supplies, cigars or Big Green Egg items (including charcoal), bottled wine, wine slushies, hard cider, etc., EMAIL us at amwinesupply@gmail.com or info@TheWashingtonWinery.com, or CALL us at 724.222.9463. We will contact you for order confirmation & payment, and confirm a pickup time. Once you arrive at A&M/The Winery, we will bring your order to your vehicle. If you are are purchasing bottled wine, wine slushies, or hard cider, we will check your ID to ensure you are 21+.

 

Again, if you would like to place an order for pickup, please email or call us. We will keep you posted on any changes that occur. Thank you for your support during this time.
