COVID-19 UPDATE FROM RACK & RIDDLE
Dear Valued Clients,
First and foremost, we hope this message finds you in good health.
We would like to provide you with information about Rack & Riddle’s current status (as of November 2021):
WINEMAKING & PRODUCTION STATUS
Currently, our winemaking and production lines are fully operational. This status will be maintained — providing that we continue to have a healthy workforce — which is a top priority for us at this time.
We utilize Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP), at both our Healdsburg and Geyserville facilities, and are taking extra precautions to maintain safety and mitigate the potential spread of germs:
- We have asked staff exhibiting any form of illness to stay home, contact their physician, and not return to work until fully recovered from symptoms.
- We’ve secured an outside cleaning service to deep clean both facilities, daily.
- Staff is practicing “Social Distancing” and maintaining a minimum of 6-feet of distance from one another.
- We offer alcohol-based sanitizer throughout our facility and common areas, and encourage employees to wash hands frequently with warm soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Handwashing stations are located throughout our production facilities.
HEALTH & SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
For the health and safety of our staff and clients, we currently require that all visitors must schedule an appointment in advance before visiting our facilities. If you are a client with an upcoming or active wine project, please reach out to our winemaking team at (707) 433-8400 or directly via email. If you are a prospective or existing client with other appointment needs — please follow the guidelines below.
Visitors that have been scheduled to enter the facility must be wearing a mask that covers their nose and mouth and maintain proper social distancing during the entirety of their visit. We also ask that visitors bring their own high-visibility safety vests.
Upon arrival, enter the production trailer (second to the left from parking lot entrance) with mask and sanitize hands prior to signing your in-time in log-book (name will already be entered) and gathering vest/ goggles/ FOB. Sign-out is required when you leave the property as well.
Please visit https://socoemergency.org/emergency/novel-coronavirus/soco-covid-19-check/soco-covid-19-employee-check/ or use the SoCo Check app to answer a few simple health screening questions and then email a screenshot of your completed wellness check to your Rack & Riddle contact prior to arriving onsite.
We appreciate your understanding in advance, as we deal with this fluid situation. We will keep you updated should any changes or mandates require us to change our production capabilities or operations.
Stay healthy and vigilant,
Rebecca Faust & Bruce Lundquist
