Santa Ynez: Dog-friendly wineries?
- The Oracle Jun 13, 2012 12:28 PM
I'm heading to Santa Ynez and bringing along a dog. I'm researching dog-friendly wineries and, while I need to call each to actually confirm, have found promising info on the following as being options:
Does anyone have any knowledge of other properties being dog-friendly?
I'm pretty sure most wineries and tasting rooms allow dogs. I've been all over with friends and their dog and we never had a problem. Many wineries have resident dogs of their own so it would really surprise me to see any place with a no dogs allowed policy.
Practice varies among wineries due to health Dept. regulations. Few allow pets in SLO County.Check where ever you plan to visit.
Trending....... more and more people asking about and taking dogs to restaurants. I wonder what is behind this. Common practice in Europe for generations. Not so in the US.
But in the past few years it is now expected to bring dogs into formerly prohibited settings. What basically has changed? Regulations? Lack of enforcement? Fad? Fewer children and more pets?
