High-proof (e.g. 70%) ethanol can be an effective sanitizing agent against the coronavirus causing COVID-19. Spraying of small winery surfaces or equipment for sanitization with this solution is not problematic, especially in a well-ventilated area. However, pumping high proof ethanol (for the purpose of creating sanitizing solution or sanitizing large pieces of equipment) using a normal winery pump could be hugely dangerous (explosion hazard) and should be avoided.
