- Avoid chewing gum prior to or during your tasting.
- Avoid smoking prior to tasting.
- Avoid perfumes and colognes.
- Avoid lipstick.
- Moderate your wine consumption by spitting in our spittoons.

We thank you for your interest in visiting Paumanok. We kindly request you observe the following while visiting us:
- No smoking anywhere on the property, both indoors and outdoors, including the parking lot.
- Pets are welcome outdoors only and must be on a leash.

We do not serve alcohol to anyone under 21 years of age. We check identification, as we are required by law. Similarly, we are prohibited from serving anyone that appears to be intoxicated. This is a judgment call that we are singularly responsible to make and we choose to err on the side of being cautious, for the protection and safety of our customers. Should you be refused a tasting for such a reason we would appreciate your understanding and cooperation. But as we value our customer's opinion we welcome any comments.

While we hope you enjoy our wines in moderation, for the safety of all our guests, we offer the following reminder: It is dangerous to drive a vehicle or operate machinery after drinking alcohol. If you do so you assume full risk of injury and death to yourself and others.
