Wine Pooch Tour
A wine tasting weekend unlike any OTHER
We believe that DOGS are our FAMILY. And family members should not be excluded from fun, weekend retreats. We also believe it is important to understand what goes into our food and WINE- and make informed decisions about what we do and don't consume, and why.
Join our curated weekend of natural wine tasting
in 100% dog friendly environments.
In three days (2 nights) in the chic 4- star Kimpton Goodland Hotel, and one full day of wine tours, you will learn about natural winemaking, visit five wineries and tasting rooms, enjoy wine and cheese pairing, and explore the gorgeous Santa Ynez Valley - All with your dog(s)!
I'm Nadja, and the cute little Spaniel is my 2-year old dog-child PIKA (peeka).
We live in Santa Monica, California, and love to travel. Pika has been on over 20 flights, including twice to Europe, and we regularly enjoy weekend trips together locally.
Apart from travel and dogs (#crazydogmom), I am very passionate about food & wine. I've spent countless nights studying, and researching winemaking, dog-friendly wineries, tasting rooms, and hotels. I created Wine Pooch to share my knowledge and experience with you - fellow dog & wine lovers.
All reviews on this site are genuine, and our dog friendly wine tours are personalized and curated, to ensure a fantastic experience for all humans and dogs involved.
Love, Nadja (and Pika)
