America's Most Dog Friendly Wineries by Jim Finley - March 20, 2014
From Wine Dog Books and Calendars to dog-themed wine labels, dogs and wine just seem to go together. Fortunately, with more than 750 dog friendly wineries in the U.S., the dog and wine connection isn't just about marketing. Beware, though, "dog friendly" is as well defined as "old vine." Some wineries allow dog lovers to ... Read full article...
