A winery’s not a winery unless there’s a dog around. Whether greeting guests, herding livestock, or chasing off deer, dogs make everything work.

After a brief period of confusion in 2017/2018, dogs are now allowed back in winery tasting rooms – go dogs! Caveats: each winery decides for itself, and dogs must be friendly and on leash. 

DOGS ARE WELCOME IN THESE TASTING ROOMS (Scroll down to see where dogs are NOT welcome!)

These wineries love dogs, and welcome them even inside their tasting rooms.
