SPECIAL COVID ANNOUNCEMENT
As I am sure you are all aware, COVID -Delta Variant- has turned into much more of a challenge than the CDC and local health officials anticipated. The cases of COVID continue to rise at an alarming rate in Clermont County, and the counties that border us. There are still as many as 50 new cases per 100,000 people per day in those surrounding counties that make up up the vast majority of our visitors. I won't get into a discussion about vaccination rates, but suffice it to say that I am not encouraged. Plus, there was never a means at the winery level to determine who was and was not vaccinated. So, it is a moot point.
For these reasons, The Hill will return to the mask mandatory guidelines that helped us make it through summer 2020 without incidences of COVID by my staff, and the majority of those guests who frequent Harmony Hill. As was the case last summer, visitors will have to be properly masked to enter the winery and restrooms. Masks will be available at the door for those who may have forgotten theirs. Also, options for restrooms and wine purchases will be available for those who simply refuse to mask. Besides the masking, and the fact that we will return to more stringent sanitation methods, social distancing and other guidelines are the same as we have practiced all summer.
I understand that this is an inconvenience, but please realize that it is an inconvenience for everyone, including those of us who work diligently to assure you have a safe, yet enjoyable visit to The Hill.

We will be offering bottle (preferred) and glass sales only.
The tables under cover are set at 6-foot distancing. Do not move these tables. Parties larger than 6 are asked to use the lawn.
The music stage is off limits to everyone except musicians.
The tables under cover are set to maintain social distancing restrictions, and should not be moved (except by a staff member) all tables are set a minimum of 6 feet apart.
