Given the unprecedented times we are all experiencing as a result of the Coronavirus Pandemic we are writing to inform you of what strategies we are adopting at Dindima to ensure our customers and staff remain safe and healthy throughout the course of this health emergency.
It is with much regret that we have taken the decision to cancel this wonderful annual gathering at our Dindima vineyard.
We know many of our customers and supporters are very disappointed, as are we, but we believe in the long-term interests of the local community and public health it is the socially responsible action to take.
Hopefully by making this unpalatable decision now we will contribute to slowing the progress of the virus and allowing all of us to move on sooner rather than later to enjoying more sociable lives.
It is our hope that we can schedule other events both here in Orange and in Sydney later in the year so we can again share the Dindima experience with you.
Our cellar door is No Longer Open For Tastings as a result of the recent government COVID-19 Shut Down directives.
However, we are still permitted to sell bottled wine from the cellar door so, By Appointment Only we are offering our local customers the opportunity to purchase their favourites should they wish. Such purchases will attract a 10% discount in recognition of those customers’ support.
Until further notice we will be open for bottle sales only from Friday to Monday between 10am and 5pm.
In order to comply with the government’s social distancing requirements we can only accommodate one customer at a time in the cellar door.
Should you wish to take advantage of these new arrangements but are feeling unwell please postpone your visit to our cellar door and consider purchasing online or if you prefer, call Lee for assistance and arrange for a home delivery. She can be contacted on 0408 449 664 or send her an email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Should you plan to visit the cellar door please check our website ahead of time or ring Lee on 0408 449 664 or Dave on 0427 449 664 to confirm the above information still applies. Government requirements are likely to change at short notice.
We ask that you register your visit with us on arrival at the cellar door by filling out a CONTACT FORM so if we are notified of any visitors who have since been diagnosed with the virus, we can inform you without delay.
Should you be unfortunate enough to be in self-isolation or unable to visit us at the cellar door in the near future we invite you to visit our online store at www.dindima.com.au or give Lee a call on 0408 449 664 and she will happily organise a delivery of your selected wines to your home or workplace. FREE Freight will be provided for purchases of a dozen or more bottles.
To those of you who have supported us through the last four years of drought, the effects of smoke from the recent bushfires and now the Coronavirus, a huge THANK YOU. We greatly appreciate your interest, friendship and patronage during these difficult times and with your continued encouragement and support we are optimistic about being able to share many of the pleasures of Dindima with you again before too long.
Please take care. Stay safe and healthy.
Best wishes from the Dindima Team,
Lee, Dave, Michelle and James.
