Fredericksburg’s own Signor Vineyards, in the Texas Hill Country, has launched an initiative designed to donate wine as well as notes of encouragement to essential workers during the COVID-19 pandemic. Called ‘Bottles for the Frontline,’ the project seeks to show encouragement and appreciation to frontline workers here in Texas.

Signor Vineyards and their employees are sending personalized notes of encouragement and a bottle of wine to those who serve as essential and frontline workers during the pandemic to extend a moment of relief and respite. The business is presently closed for tastings as a result of the COVID-19 and Coronavirus epidemic, however, the boutique family vineyard does have wine available for purchase through their drive-thru as well as online.

The Signor team have also shared personal notes to their loved ones on their social media for the Bottles for the Frontline campaign, highlighting the gratitude they feel for those near and dear as well as the brave men and women working throughout the course of the pandemic. Among them are a COVID ICU nurse at the University of Chicago, one HEB store manager here in the Lone Star State, and a surgical registered nurse, in addition to many others. “We understand how much our frontline workers are sacrificing and putting at risk for our community. Many are working through such stressful situations and do not have the comfort of hugging their children and being around their family. We thought this small gesture could help instill a little hope and relaxation in this time,” said Will Coker, General Manager at Signor Vineyards.

The change of pace and practices that the COVID-19 pandemic has brought to Texas has affected a lot of lives in the state and across the U.S. Signor Vineyards, which has become a destination where friends and family come from all over to congregate in the Hill Country, has followed suit with health and safety closures, moving to drive-thru and online service. Owner/proprietor Clay Signor said, “A big part of what we do is bring people together. And even though we cannot do that at this time, we can carry on the feeling of joy and fellowship that comes when you open a bottle. We know that our frontline workers deserve much more than but it’s the least we can do.”

To ensure the Bottles for the Frontline campaign is the great success it can be, Signor Vineyards is taking nominations for frontline workers. People can nominate and share stories of the heroes in their lives by commenting on the Signor Vineyards Facebook or Instagram posts. They are also encouraging other wineries and vineyards to join their cause and share their photos using the hashtag #bottles4frontline.
