Wine & Woofs: Canines Uncorked
Saturday, August 4, 2018
The eighth annual Canines Uncorked wine tour highlights 15 North Willamette Valley wineries where dogs are counted among the guests of honor. A “License to Taste” passport includes free wine tastings at each participating winery, dog activities, and two complimentary tasting cards valid at all participating wineries during the month of August. This event is a benefit for shelter animals.
The “License to Taste” passport is only valid on August 4th during event hours (11am-4pm). So that you may visit other wineries that you may not get to visit the day of the event, you will receive two complimentary tasting cards each good for one tasting at any participating winery. Cards are valid during the month of August. Please note that activities from the event will not be setup after August 4th. Also, some wineries are not dog-friendly (with the exception of the event day). Please call ahead or check the winery’s website before bringing you canine friend with you.
