Cheers To Dog Friendly Wineries!


For you dog and wine lovers out there, what could be better than sipping a fine Merlot or Chardonnay while hanging out with your pooch?  Sounds perfect, doesn’t it? Well, those aren’t just daydreams any longer, as many wineries across the U.S. are now inviting four-legged guests to visit.  Some are even going above and beyond when it comes to welcoming pooches!

So, what makes a winery truly dog friendly when it comes to welcoming furry guests?  While some places just allow your pup to walk with you on a tour of the vineyard and surrounding areas, some really go out of their way to welcome dogs.  Most will provide water bowls, but some even offer homemade treats for pups. Others provide fenced-in places where your dog can run and play, and some even allow dogs in their tasting rooms.  The Telaya Wine Co., located in Garden City near Boise, ID, is a prime example of a truly dog friendly winery.  Dogs are welcome on their spacious patio, that is complete with an above ground fire pit.  People are encouraged to drink wine and dine at the patio tables, with their dogs right by their sides.
