As someone who owns a dog, my Frenchie Ernestine, and loves to travel with her, I appreciate when wineries are dog-friendly. Sonoma is a great place to drink wine and the experience is ten times better being with your pup. Read below as I have accumulated a list of the Best Dog-Friendly Wineries in Sonoma! If you know of more dog-friendly wineries please let me know as I’d love to add them to this list!
Abbot’s Passage Winery & Mercantile
Abbot’s Passage Winery & Mercantile is located in the heart of Glen Ellen and nestled between rows of 100-year old vines. They have a lovely collection of wines and their small-lot blends showcase grapes from notable vineyards. Whether coming to taste, shop, play or celebrate, this winery is a great place to experience with friends, family and dogs too! 777 Madrone Rd, Glen Ellen, CA 95442

Blue Farm Wines
Blue Farm Wines is another winery I absolutely adore visiting. I was able to meet their winemaker Anne-Moller Racke at Donum Estate, more about Donum Estate here, but she recently left to focus exclusively on her beautiful wines at Blue Farm Wines. And honestly, I think these are some of the most elegant, full-body, delicious Pinot Noir Wines in Sonoma. Learn more about Winemaker Anne Moller Racke’s interview here.
Chenoweth Vineyards is a winery that I recently got more familiar with and have fallen in LOVE with!! Located in Sonoma County, Chenoweth has absolutely gorgeous vineyards and unique flavors of wine that reflect the region of California. Ernie definitely had the time of her life accompanying me on the wine tours and tastings. Read more about my visit here: My Lovely Chenoweth Vineyards Tour & Wine Tasting
Copain Winery is one of the most amazing wineries in Sonoma. They have a fabulous assortment of wines and spectacular views of the vineyard. I was blown away by their Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs when I first tried them. Also, they’re dog friendly which helped make my experience even nicer! 7800 Eastside Rd, Healdsburg, CA 95448.

Dutton Estate Winery
Dutton Estate Winery is a small family-owned winery in the Russian River Valley. They offer an authentic and elegant wine tasting experience which is a must-try. I even tried their chocolate pairing which was a delicious and lovely experience. Although pets are not permitted, service animals are welcome! 8757 Green Valley Road, Sebastopol, CA 95472
Such a lovely welcome to our tasting!
Located in Sebastopol, Dutton-Goldfield Winery is the perfect place for great wines, outdoor patio seating, and a dog-friendly vibe. They were also a part of my 2019 Pinots & Plaid Luxury Wine Tasting which means you know I adore their Pinot Noir wines! You’re definitely going to want to schedule a visit for yourself! 3100 Gravenstein Hwy N, Sebastopol, CA 95472
Lambert Bridge Winery
Another winery that I adore is Lambert Bridge Winery located in Healdsburg. They have a lovely variety of wines and stunning outdoor gardens. Be sure to check out their Barrel Room, Cellar Room and Patio Tasting. They even offer a picnic experience that is perfect for wine tasting and fun with your dog! 4085 West Dry Creek Road, Healdsburg, CA 95448
Lioco Wine Tasting Room
Another Healdsburg tasting room I adore and frequent is Licoo. They have gorgeous Sonoma Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and sometimes a fun surprise such as a Sparkling Pet Nat. This is also dog friendly which makes it one of Ernie’s favorite spots in town as well. 125 Matheson Street Healdsburg.
Ernie is always thrilled to visit Lioco Wine whether we are tasting inside or outside she’s in heaven!
MacRostie Winery Estate House
One of my favorite and most frequently visited wineries in Healdsburg is MacRostie Winery. They have the most beautiful architecture which you can read more about on my blog post here. Additionally, the guest experience is stellar just like their wines and I get to visit with my pup Ernie! Overall, a lovely experience and a must-visit winery. 4605 Westside Road, Healdsburg, CA 95448. Read more here: Healdsburg’s MacRostie Winery & Vineyards.

Peay Vineyards is a Sonoma Coast destination that I had the pleasure of visiting. While admiring the incredible vineyard landscape and exquisite wines, I got to taste their estate Pinot Noir Wines which are beyond fabulous and any Pinot Noir lover would be familiar with. Peay Vineyards was also at my inaugural Pinots & Plaid 2019 in San Francisco and it’s truly a brand I adore! Be sure to check out this beautiful winery. 33201 Annapolis Rd, Annapolis, CA 95412
Porter Creek Vineyards
Porter Creek Vineyards is a gorgeous winery in Healdsburg, my favorite place! They are a small family winery and they boast 45-year-old Pinot Noir vines that still make the most delicious wine. This is the perfect rustic winery as it’s been unchanged by tourism meaning it’s a great hidden gem. What’s even better is that they’re dog and kid-friendly meaning there’s fun to be had for everyone! 8735 Westside Rd. Healdsburg, CA 95448
RAEN Winery is my latest Sonoma discovery. RAEN has a beautiful vineyard very close to the Sonoma Coastline in Sebastopol. This makes their wine super unique. During my visit, I tasted some absolutely delicious Pinot Noirs (my favorite), and both myself and Ernie were treated so well. We had an absolutely amazing time and can’t wait to visit again soon. 6780 McKinley St, Sebastopol, CA 95472
