One of the best things about Missouri wine country is the gorgeous scenery. Most wineries offer beautiful grounds with outdoor seating, and when you’re enjoying sunshine and fresh air, don’t you want your furry friend with you? There are 63 wineries in the state that welcome you to come out and enjoy the outdoors… and bring “man’s best friend” along with you! What could be better than a day relaxing at a Missouri winery with your (crowd-friendly) pup?
Wenwood Farm Winery in Bland, Missouri hosts an annual event that’s perfect for your furry friend. This year’s Wenwood Woof Fest takes place on May 7th, and is the wine and canine extravaganza of the year, benefitting dog rescue.
Rolling Meadows Vineyard and Winery in Warrenton, Missouri features a 100 x 50 foot dog run on site and tons of outdoor seating for you and your four-legged best bud.
Generally speaking, wineries require dogs to remain in the outdoor areas and on a leash. If your dog isn’t great around crowds, it’s not a good idea to take them to a winery on a busy day. Also, don’t forget to clean up after your pets when visiting a winery.
