So why not make a day of it, and bring your favorite varietals home to enjoy! Read on to discover our top three dog-friendly wineries in the Niagara Region of Canada.

Rancourt Winery

One of the tiniest operations in the region, Rancourt is charming and inviting, but do not let their size fool you; they still bring big body when it comes to their wines. You may come for the Cab Franc, but stay for Kruise, the winery dog, affectionately referred to as the ‘cellar rat’.  People from as far as Japan book tastings for the chance to meet this Teddy Face Pomeranian – seriously, he even has his own calendar.

Small quantities of high quality has always been the focus at Rancourt. Situated on 25 acres, all of their wines are VQA (Vitners Quality Alliance) and made from classic grapes, 100% grown in their own vineyard.

Book in advance as the tastings fill up fast. The private room can accommodate up to 48 people.

Come to Rancourt for:

Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Riesling and Chardonnay.
