The Argyle Tasting House is Open
Welcome back to the Argyle Tasting House! Our Hospitality and Management Team has created a service plan that allows for comfort and enjoyment while exceeding best practices for required physical distancing, including:
- Reservations are required. Book an appointment quickly and easily online any time, or call us at 503-538-8520. During the summer, Saturdays tend to sell out, so plan ahead!
- Face coverings are required (except while tasting).
- Please be prepared for either indoor or outdoor seating. While we will do our best to meet your preferences, at this time we may be unable to do so to ensure social distancing and accommodate all reservations.
- Parties are limited to eight guests total, including children, non-tasters, etc. Parties with separate reservations may not combine to form a larger group. Please ensure that your party (including children and pets) stays at your table during your visit.
- Please plan on a one-hour experience to allow for us to accommodate all reservations.
- We do not serve food, and no outside food is allowed at this time. There are lovely options nearby for lunch.
- If you have any symptoms of illness, please delay your visit.

Safety Policies and Precautions
While we have always prioritized the health and safety of our guests and staff, we have implemented the following additional precautions:
- Seating arrangements have been reconfigured to ensure safe distance between parties and utilize outdoor space as much as possible. Please do not move furniture, respect a minimum physical distance of 6 feet between other parties and ensure that your children and pets do as well.
- Dogs must remain outside and on a leash at all times.
- Reservations are limited to 60 minutes, with time in between tables for sanitizing.

- Lawn games are not allowed and we ask that you please keep children and pets off the grass areas and bocce court.
- Our service has been modified to limit contact at the table and to prevent cross-contamination between guests:
