Proposal Spot: Dog-Friendly, Picnicking Winery
I have seen a number of threads of places to picnic in wine country, however, I am looking for a picnic spot at a winery that is a little more secluded so I can ask a very important question to my special someone. The spot doesn't need to have spectacular views (though wouldn't be opposed to it), just a semi-private spot out of earshot of bachelorette parties or tour bus groups. I don't really have a preference on the region either.
We typically opt for off-the-beaten path wineries, but at this point, I'll consider anything. Initially thought of Kunde's mountaintop location, but they don't allow picnicking there. I have inquiries into Gundlach Bundschu, Unti, and Hanna. Oh and it would have to be a dog-friendly place.
Are there some places I am missing?
Dutch Henry winery is dog friendly. While Dogs are not allowed in the winery we are happy to set you up at a picnic table for a tasting. Leashes are encouraged and when possible a call ahead to alert our resident Airedales of pending four legged company.
Do a control-F search for "picnic"
I know nothing about the wines, but this looks like it has lots of spots that would be nice for a proposal: http://www.lambertbridge.com/visit

+1 on Lambert Bridge....I was there about a month ago (think it was on Sunday) and noticed a number of people sitting outside, enjoying the tranquil setting. It is a very pretty and pleasant place. I think the wines are pretty good, but have only tasted chardonnay recently. There are two very large dogs at the winery.
Thanks for the resources, I have had a chance to look at similar resources and was really looking for some personal recommendations. I have been tricked by web marketing before that made a place sound quaint, when it really was a sh*tshow. Good to know about LB: tranquil setting is definitely a plus!
