On October 30th from noon to 4:30, wine lovers and their friendly dogs are invited for the return of the Livermore Valley Winegrowers Association’s Wine & Wags event! More than 20 Livermore Valley Wineries have partnered with 13 Bay Area animal rescues to host a day of wine and fun. Thanks to the local animal rescue organizations, many dogs seeking homes will be available at wineries during the event. Grassy lawns, obstacle courses, dog pools, and treats for dogs are staples of the day’s activities for all attendees and their leashed dogs. In addition to food and pet themed gifts, many wineries will offer discounts on their bottles of wine. Guests are encouraged to bring their friendly dogs to enjoy the day, though pets are not required.
In commemoration of the yearly event, we will be offering a Join-In Tour of the event, which will include admission and transportation. Join a group of fellow wine and dog lovers on a trip to many of the participating wineries! The event tickets include entrance into participating wineries, a celebratory Livermore Valley Wine Country GoVino glass, at least two wine tastes at each winery and access to all event activities. Attending dogs must be always leashed. We will also have private transportation offerings for private rides for groups and their pups.
Many fun activities are covered by admission, including:
· Pet and owner costume parade at 2 pm at Retzlaff Vineyards
· Obedience demonstration by Brat Pak Dog Kamp at Page Mill Winery
· Dog photo booth and belly rub station at Rosa Fierro Cellars
· Doggie obstacle course at Garré Vineyard & Winery
Fenestra Winery's Pup Bar will offer a variety of refreshing pet beverages and Big White House will sell "Barkcuterie" boxes of dog treats to benefit their partner rescue.
