Our little Rye Bread had his leg broken by a big dog when he was a pup. He gets scared when he sees another dog in his territory. Because of this, we ask that you let us know before bringing in your service dog or pet pooch into the tasting room so we can put him where he won't see your dog.

Pups are always welcome on the patio.

Count Chocula

Shatzie aka Peanut

Count Chocula worked as winery greeter when we first opened in 2012. In spring of 2019, he unexpectedly left us. We are convinced that he sent us a new friend.

We took our old wiener dog Shatzie to meet a different dog. She hated him. But the shelter had this scared, little Chichuahua mix boy that went into the shelter on the day Count passed. And Shatzie liked him.

So we took him home to the winery.

It's eerie how our new boy Rye Bread has worked the winery from the minute he set foot in it. We’re convinced that Count sent him to carry on his job as greeter.

Stop in to meet Rye Bread and maybe you'll be lucky enough to meet little Shatzie the Grandma Wiener Dog.

Until we meet again Count. You are forever in our hearts.
