In my ongoing quest to have our dog with us on most – if not all – of our wine tasting adventures, I’ve uncovered more incredible, dog-friendly wineries in Paso Robles. As a rule of thumb when tasting with dogs, always bring a leash, make sure the dogs remain well-behaved, and remember to be respectful of other tasters.
Below is a list of some of my recent favorite dog-friendly spots…
- Alta Colina Vineyard & Winery
2725 Adelaida Road
Paso Robles, CA 93446
Phone: (805) 227-4191
Fax: (805) 541-8025
Tasting room hours: 11AM – 5:00PM Thursday through Sunday
Notes: At Alta Colina, dogs are very welcome inside the tasting room while their owners try some of the winery’s award-winning wines. If the tasting room is crowded or there are tasters who have allergies, you may be asked to taste outside as a courtesy.
- Edward Sellers Vineyards & Wines
1401 West Highway 46
Paso Robles, CA 93446
Phone: (805) 239-8915
Tasting room hours: 11AM – 5PM Daily
* UPDATE 8/13: CLOSED. The tasting room is now owned by J Dusi Wines
Notes: Edward Sellers is a very dog-friendly winery where our dog Booker was invited inside the tasting room with us. He was given a bowl of water and quickly made friends with one of the resident tasting room dogs. The two of them played inside as well as outside on the beautiful grounds.
- Per Cazo Cellars
5325 Vineyard Drive
Paso Robles, CA 93446
Phone: (805) 227-4949
Fax: (866) 252-5962
email: email@example.com OR firstname.lastname@example.org
Tasting room hours: BY APPOINTMENT. Wine tasting is complimentary.
Notes: Our dog absolutely loves Per Cazo Cellars. Not only is their gorgeous Creekside Bed & Breakfast dog-friendly, but Booker had a blast playing with the winery’s resident dog Rosie while we tasted some delicious wine outside.
- Terry Hoage Vineyards
870 Arbor Road
Paso Robles, CA 93446
Phone: (805) 238-2083
Tasting room hours: 11AM – 4PM Thursday through Monday
Notes: At Terry Hoage Vineyards, dogs are welcome inside the tasting room as long as they remain leashed and are well-behaved. There is also a beautiful outdoor area where owners sip wine while their dogs watch water birds swimming in the pond.

We here at Cass Winery are dog friendly on our veranda and picnic area as well! Please come visit, we would love to have you and Booker out 🙂
Thanks so much, Lindsay! We would love to stop by on our next visit! I’ll email you before we head up there again…
Thank you for this info, We are heading up to the area in March and staying in Cambria with our pooch. Can’t wait for the wine tasting adventure.
Have a wonderful trip!!
Thank you so much for this blog. We also are heading up to Cambria with our dog in March and this being our first trip to the Paso Robles area I have found your info to be incredibly worthwhile. I know that wines can run the gamut of prices from expensive to reasonable. Did you find a winery that gave you the most bang for the buck? Thanks in advance if you can answer this for me.
Hi Mike! I’m so glad you found the blog useful. In terms of the most bang for the buck, I would recommend Calcareous (http://www.calcareous.com/). They’re super dog friendly, the view is absolutely stunning, and they have an entire collection of wines called Twisted Sisters that are all $20/bottle (as well as more expensive bottles). Chronic Cellars (http://www.chroniccellars.com/) is also good if you’re looking for a unique, very casual experience. All the Chronic Cellars wines are under $30/bottle (with the exception of 1 or 2). On the higher end pricing-wise, I love Booker (http://www.bookerwines.com/) and Terry Hoage (http://www.terryhoagevineyards.com/) – both of which are dog friendly. Have a great trip & don’t hesitate to email me if you have any further questions…
You are absolutely AWESOME. Thanks so much!!!!
I can not thank you enough for your dog friendly winery recommendations! We had great experiences in Paso Robles bringing our Labrador who is two years old (read: lots and lots of energy!).
I would like to add Windward Vineyard (http://www.windwardvineyard.com/) to your list of recommendations. The first picture on their website is of the owners + their 3 dogs. Our Labbie was welcomed inside with a big bowl of water, which was much relief on a very hot day. Plus, the Pinot at Windward is simply divine.
Thank you again for your tips! We are headed to Los Olivios shortly. I’m off to go read your post about that area!
Thanks so much for your kind words! I will definitely add Windward Vineyard to my dog friendly recommendations. I hope to do a “part 3” soon!
Have a great time in Los Olivos!
We would love to have you and Booker out to visit us at Windward Vineyard (Exclusively Pinot Noir)! Our miniature poodle Snowball is the same size and loves to play 🙂 Let us know the next time you come up to Paso.
Hi Anna! We would love to come visit and try your wines. It looks like we’ll be in Paso in early September. I’ll email you to let you know specific dates. Hope to see you soon 🙂
J. Lohr was incredibly dog-friendly when we passed through there in July. I asked if we could have the dog on the patio, and they said we should bring her inside. And the wines are really good, too. 🙂
Thanks for the heads-up! I’ll have to check them out…
Any thoughts on dog-friendly restaurants or wine bars? We will be getting into town around 6PM and need some spots to bring the pup for dinner and drinks!
I really like Thomas Hill Organics (http://www.thomashillorganics.com/)… they have a large back outdoor area where you can dine with your pup. They’re also a wine bar & have a great selection to choose from. If you’re in the mood for Italian, we were able to have our dog outside on the patio with us at Buona Tavola (http://www.btslo.com/). Finally, while I haven’t personally dined here with my dog, I understand Robert’s Restaurant also allows dogs on their outdoor patio (http://www.roberts-restaurant.com/). Robert’s has good, updated American fare (fish, steaks, salads, etc) and is also a wine bar. Enjoy!!
We ended up going to Firestone for apps and then Thomas Hill Organics for dinner. HIGHLY recommend both. Dinner at Thomas Hill was right up our alley, and our server treated our pup like a celebrity. I am pretty sure that by the end of the meal, the pup had a full filet mignon with all the bites she was given each time the server came by.
I’m so glad to hear! Thanks for the update…
