The Winery Dog. This particular pooch is one that lives and works (and naps) in the vineyard, winery and tasting rooms of wineries around the world. To document and share winemakers’ best friend(s) with the rest of us common folk, the site winedogs.com offers consistent updates on these chateaux dwelling canines.
Established in 1997, the Wine Dogs webpage is basically an official encyclopedia of the winemakers’ trusty hound. Although Wine Dogs’ first book was published in 2003—with 8 more editions following—the website is still a simple way to sift through all of Wine Dogs’ products. Calendars, books, hats—the online store provides many pieces of merchandise for purchase. Besides retail, you can also tune in to the latest Wine Dog news as well as become acquainted with the featured Wine Dog of the Month.
Still, if you’re more into tangible things, the Wine Dog book series offers a photographic journal of gorgeous pictures and short essays, all intended to be a tribute to the working (and relaxing) dogs living among the grapes. And what makes these reads even better? Pairing one perfectly with a generous glass of wine.
