5 New Pet-Friendly Spots in Wine Country

By

We love our pets so much that, naturally, we want to bring them everywhere. Luckily, since our last roundup of dog-friendly Wine Country locales, even more restaurants and wineries have started catering to Fido too. Here are our favorite news places to grab a beer with man's best friend. 


Lagunitas Brewing Company

Don't doubt that the team behind one of Wine Country's most popular brews loves dogs: the mascot is a hound in a top hat; Santa Rosa's Lost Dog Found is one of their most popular live music acts; and their signature, malty ale is named Dogtown Pale Ale. Plus, the brewery sponsors non-profits like the Animal Rescue Foundation. And should you be sad enough to not have a pooch of your own, the owners and employees bring their dogs for borrowing a belly rub. // 1280 N. McDowell Boulevard, Petaluma

The Birds Café 

You can and should bring your bird dog to this Alfred Hitchcock-inspired café on a bluff overlooking the water. The expansive deck offers plenty of space to stretch out and load up your picnic table with excellent fish tacos, briny fresh oysters, crunchy crusted artichoke fritters, and for your beloved companion, a corn dog, of course. // 1407 Highway 1, Bodega Bay

Cairdean Estate

This posh property has it all: it’s a wine and food village, with two tasting rooms, boutique shops, an art gallery, a deli, and plenty of courtyard and lawn space for Rover to scamper. Buy him some charcuterie from the Butterscots deli, kick back with a bottle of Picpoul Blanc or Roussanne, and love your life. // 3111 St. Helena Hwy. North, St Helena

Hall Winery

At this gorgeous estate, staffers welcome four-legged guests with dog biscuits and invite canines and humans alike to relax on the balcony of the upstairs tasting room. It’s a gorgeous, modern building brimming with artwork (including the giant Bunny Foo Foo sculpture at the entry), a wide array of Cabernet Sauvignon styles, and the 33-acre site features a Great Lawn for burning off puppy steam. // 401 St. Helena Highway South, Saint Helena

The Pear Southern Bistro

Take the pooch on a stroll down the river walk, then head to Pear Southern Bistro’s patio for some good ol' Southern sustenance such as catfish, tater tots for tossing to your furry pal, and Dogfish Head beer. Puppy will be happy to help you with that meatloaf, too, or chicken and dumplings, and certainly the bourbon pear glazed baby back ribs (hold the peanuts, though). // 720 Main Street, Napa
