    Where to drink: Wineries that love dogs

    One of the most wonderful things about the Hill Country is the wine! These open spaces are wonderful attractions for some fine time outdoors. The following tasting rooms are welcoming for our guests and their dogs companions. Again, we recommend asking what they allow and don’t allow and definitely keep them on a leash. Many of these open spaces look great for running your dog but it may be off-limits. Regardless, there’s no reason not to go and enjoy these places! They are ordered nearest to farthest from our retail location.
