I read a great little article this morning on the Wine Enthusiast site, and this is to our dog-loving wino friends (like us!) so apologies to the rest of our readers.
I’ve seen a lot of dog-friendliness, dog events, dog this, and dog that, though I’ve also seen a dog-on-dog attack as well that sure puts a damper on whiffing that hint of peach from that Chardonnay in your hand, so there’s a balance there and owner responsibility, but if we can all get along, it makes for a great day out in the vines.
Here’s the article. It focuses on US wineries, but I’d also like to add that the Okanagan valley in Canada is a tremendous destination for dog lovers. We had an amazing time at a dog-focused event at Road 13 Vineyards a while back and many of the other wineries are also very welcoming of our beloved canines.
I then stumbled across the Wine Doggies web site. The Wineshout team is headed to the Yakima Valley next week, and you know what, we’re gonna take our pooch along and get in some tastings at some pet-friendly wineries. Check back for some pics and tales of our adventures in Yakima later this month. In the meantime, if you’re a dog-lovin’, wine sippin’ person like us, do check out the Wine Doggies Doggie Bloggie.
So do you take your dog on winery outings and vacations? Would love to hear about your experiences and which wineries welcome dogs with open arms.
