“We turned to proven technology to improve our guest experience and ensure their safety, as well as that of our staff. Advanced UV air disinfection allows us to preserve the integrity of The Winery experience, for which we are known,” said JC Clow, Founding Partner of The Winery Restaurant’s three Southern California locations, along with William Lewis and Chef Yvon Goetz. “At the onset of the pandemic, we installed gorgeous transparent custom dividers at our restaurants, and this latest technological upgrade is another way in which we are working to ensure that all guests and staff feel comfortable and safe inside our restaurants.”
The Winery Restaurant has implemented UV disinfection to effectively inactivate viruses like the coronavirus and influenza. Data shows that coronavirus has been shown to be highly susceptible to germicidal UV irradiation.
Utilizing UV technology is the latest in many changes The Winery Restaurants have made over the past year to better serve its guests. Last May, they partnered with Super Color Digital to create medical-grade Lexan partitions throughout the restaurant to deflect a large number of airborne particles between guest tables. By creating a barrier between customer tables and seating areas, The Winery was able to maximize restaurant occupancy without increasing potential viral exposure.
“We are focused on being proactive and always looking for ways to evolve in anticipation of what’s to come,” explained Clow. “At the core of what we do is the guest experience – and improving on it will always be our focus.”
