Dog Friendly Wineries in Paso Robles

I just recently took my first wine tasting trip to Paso Robles with my new dog, Booker.

Before my visit, I did some extensive searching online to see which wineries allow dogs – either in the tasting room or outside – and was surprised by how little information is available.

I contacted several wineries in Paso Robles and was pleasantly surprised by how many welcome dogs with open arms. I wanted to share my findings with other dog lovers and have listed the wineries I spoke to below. I plan to expand this list with each visit…

  • Chumeia Vineyard
    8331 Highway 46 East
    Paso Robles, CA 93446
    Ph: 805-226-0102
    Hours: Monday through Thursday 12PM – 5PM, Friday through Sunday 11AM – 5PM
    * UPDATE 11/13: CLOSED. Chumeia Vineyards appears to be closed and is currently listed for sale by Sotheby’s International Realty.
    Notes: Chumeia is an extremely dog-friendly winery where leashed dogs can be brought into the tasting room. There were water bowls available and a huge grassy area where dogs can run and play. Booker spent most of our visit playing with Cristo, the winery dog. In 2007, Chumeia formed a partnership with Woods Humane Society of San Luis Obispo to help raise money for the homeless animals in the county.
  • Calcareous Vineyard
    3430 Peachy Canyon Road
    Paso Robles, CA 93446
    Ph: 805-239-0289
    Hours: Open daily 11AM – 5PM
    Notes: Calcareous is very dog-friendly and has a few winery dogs of their own. I didn’t ask if dogs are allowed in the tasting room, but they are very welcome to run and play on their big, beautiful grassy area. The incredibly friendly tasting room staff brought Booker his own bowl of water.

  • Bianchi Winery
    3380 Branch Road
    Paso Robles, CA 93446
    Ph: 805-226-9922
    Hours: Open daily 10AM – 5PM
    Notes: The grounds are absolutely gorgeous at Bianchi and dogs are very welcome as long as the owners have a leash available. We sat by the Koi filled lake and Booker enjoyed water from his very own bowl.

  • Treana and Hope Family Wines
    1585 Live Oak Road
    Paso Robles, CA 93446
    Ph: 805-238-4112
    Hours: Friday & Saturday 10AM – 4PM, or by appointment
    Notes: This beautiful little winery had a great outdoor patio where dogs are welcome to relax. Booker was given his own water bowl.

    Paso Robles, CA 93446
    Ph: 805-238-7145
    Hours: Friday through Sunday 11AM – 5PM
    Notes: Villa Creek is very dog-friendly and Booker was allowed in the tasting room as long as we kept him leashed (and he didn’t pee on the barrels).
  • Chronic Cellars Winery
    2020 Nacimiento Lake Drive
    Paso Robles, CA 93446
    Ph: 805-237-7848
    Hours: Open daily 11:30AM – 5:30PM
    Notes: Chronic Cellars is also very dog friendly as long as the dog is kept leashed.
  • Eberle Winery
    3810 Hwy. 46 East
    Paso Robles, CA 93446
    Ph: 805-238-9607
    Hours: Summer 10AM – 6PM, Winter 10AM – 5PM
    Notes: Dogs are very welcome, but they must be leashed and monitored in the tasting room.
  • B & E Vineyard/Winery
    10,000 Creston Road
    Paso Robles, CA 93446
    Ph: 805-238-4815
    Hours: Friday through Sunday 11AM – 5PM; Mon through Thurs by appointment
    Notes: Although we didn’t make during our trip, Patti at B & E Vineyard/Winery was very open to having Booker stop by. The wine at B & E is great and we look very forward to heading there on our next visit.
  • Booker Vineyard & Winery
    2640 Anderson Road
    Paso Robles, CA 93446
    Ph: 805-237-7367
    Hours: Friday through Sunday 11AM – 5PM
    Notes: I was thrilled to hear that Booker Vineyard & Winery – the winery after which my dog was named – is very dog friendly. We didn’t have time to visit during our trip, but I can’t wait to introduce Booker next time we’re in Paso Robles.

  7. Oh my, this was so helpful, thank you! This is our first trip with Rufus, our golden. I was told the Vintners seen has a new guide that list all dog friendly wineries, but its not on their website yet, you can get it by snail mail. Happy dog winery tasting!

  8. so glad we found your blog. we are in cayucos with our 2 dogs and are going to visit a paso robles winery based on your blog this afternoon!

  9. My Husband and I were in Paso in September for a wedding and we followed your recommendations which were greatly appreciated!! We stayed at the La Quinta which was very dog friendly and we even had our own patio. We started out with Lunch at Panolivo which was amazing!! We went to 3 wineries that were all dog friendly. We started out trying to go to Chumeia as I really liked the association with the Humane Society however they were closed (on a Friday afternoon). We then went to Eberle which was very dog friendly and people friendly. Then off to Cronic Vineyards which was not our favorite (lacking in ambiance and cleanliness). The following day was the topper when we discovered Red Scooter Deli in downtown Paso and picked up the most amazing sandwiches and took them to Bianchi which is now my new most favorite spot on earth!! We purchased a wonderful bottle of wine and had a picnic on the patio with our pooch. We had an amazing vacation and will definitely be back again soon!

  10. Thank you for sharing your experience…we leave tomorrow morning for Cambria with our two pups and look forward to some great dog-friendly wine tasting :-))
