From our family to yours:

All of us at Swedish Hill have been watching the COVID-19 crisis evolving and we are in shock as to what has happened as well as what may happen, as all of you are. It is likely safe to assume that none of us have ever witnessed or experienced anything like this in our lifetimes. The safety and well-being of our staff and customers is our greatest concern. At Swedish Hill, and our sister properties, Goose Watch and Penguin Bay, we are taking many steps to minimize risk of exposure. We have increased our cleaning protocols in all areas of the winery. Our winemakers have put their chemistry background to work, and have formulated a cleaning and sterilization product that we have been using all over the property. Our winemaking staff have scaled back their activities and have spread out the cellar workers to maintain “social distancing”.

All winery tasting rooms in NYS and in most other states are now closed for tastings. We have closed our Goose Watch and Penguin Bay tasting rooms, as well as our Lake Placid tasting rooms, but are currently open for bottle sales at our Swedish Hill FLX location with limited hours. We are also now offering bottle sales of Goose Watch and Penguin Bay wines at Swedish Hill. For your safety as well as the safety of our employees, we recommend our curbside service option. You can call ahead to place your order, or call us from your car in our parking lot, or come to the door where you will be greeted by our staff. Our staff is wearing gloves and will put together your order and bring it to your car. As this is a rapidly evolving situation, please check with us as to our current hours.

In addition to online orders, if you reside in NYS, our wines are available in most wine and liquor stores. If your favorites are not available in your local store, most stores will special order wines for a customer if you purchase a case or more, typically with no additional delivery charge.

We are all in this together and we want to take this opportunity to thank all of you for your business over the years and we wish all the best to you and your family. At times like these, we seem to be returning to a simpler life and families and communities will persevere in the end.

Call us with any questions at (607) 403-0029.

The Peterson Family and all the staff at Swedish Hill, Goose Watch and Penguin Bay.
