Wine & Wags Event Offers Fun for Wine Lovers and Dogs


Livermore Valley Wineries Partner With Animal Rescues To Promote Adoption  

Livermore Valley, CA (March 25, 2022) – Friendly dogs and their wine-loving owners will want to plan a visit to the Livermore Valley wine country for Wine & Wags held on April 30 from 12 p.m. – 4:30 p.m. More than 25 local wineries are participating and many have partnered with Bay Area animal rescue organizations to host a day of wine tasting, dog adoptions, and fun activities for dogs and their owners.
Thanks to the involvement of more than a dozen local animal rescue organizations, many dogs seeking homes will be available for adoption at wineries during the event. Guests are encouraged to bring their friendly, leashed dogs to enjoy the day but pets are not required.
Attendees will have the opportunity to enjoy grassy lawns, doggie obstacle courses, a costume contest, treats, and much more throughout the day. Many wineries will offer discounts on bottles of wine in addition to food and pet-themed gifts for purchase. A sampling of activities include:

  • A dog costume contest at Retzlaff Vineyards
  • A dog photo booth and belly rub station at Rosa Fierro Cellars
  • A doggie obstacle course at Garré Vineyard & Winery
  • Pet portraits at Concannon Vineyards

Dog treats will be available at many wineries including Fenestra Winery’s “Pup Bar,” Nottingham Cellars’ “BARcuterie” boxes, homemade dog biscuits at Dante Robere Vineyards, and more. Several wineries will offer artisan goods for sale such as dog scarfs and toys at Almost Famous, Concannon Vineyard’s “Dashing Dogs Boutique,” Las Positas Vineyards’ “Dog Mah Boutique Barkery & Spa,” plus more.
