New COVID-19 restrictions in France. How Le Verre Gourmand will be operating.

Last updated: 30/10/20

Due to the restrictions that were announced last night and come into effect from midnight tonight, Le Verre Gourmand will be adjusting its working practices in order to comply with the regulations as well as to offer the best possible service to our valued clients. 

Our office, delivery and order collection services will continue to operate and our clients can call, email and contact us online as usual. Clients are encouraged to place orders via our online portal for convenience and accuracy but may order by any other means if they wish.

Our office will be staffed from 9am-12pm. The office is closed to the public but orders can be collected from the rear of the building by prior arrangement. Our phone number (04 50 58 59 81) will be diverted when we are not present so that you can continue to contact us during full office hours.

Deliveries will continue as usual and we ask that all of our clients continue to respect social distancing/hygiene guidelines when interacting with our drivers.

As we are all hoping for a loosening of restrictions in time for the winter season here in the Alps, our commercial team will continue to be available for you but we are unable to hold in-person tastings or events until restrictions are lifted. 

Facing considerable uncertainty and in many cases, sitting on stock from last winter, many of our business clients are opting to keep their product range unchanged for the start of this winter. Whilst this approach is sensible, we wish to reiterate that we remain available in every way possible to advise on and adjust your selections, send you samples and schedule online tastings via Zoom, Google Meet etc. 

Whether you want to keep the same range or make adjustments, please confirm with us as soon as possible so that we can ensure stock is available when business resumes. 

We will be running a series of offers and promotions during the lockdown (and beyond) to keep our beloved clients stocked up with tip-top booze. Keep an eye on your social feeds or your inbox and don’t forget to sign up for online ordering access if you have not already done so.

Finally, our very best wishes to everyone that we are working with – suppliers, clients and contractors alike. We appreciate your support now more than ever and want to assure you of ours. Let’s raise a glass (online!?) again soon.
