Sacramento wineries and beyond with your furry friend

By: DogTrekker Staff

When you think of wine, Sacramento might not be the first place that comes to mind. However, within 75 miles of California’s state capital, you’ll find over 200 wineries and tasting rooms, many of which welcome dogs just as warmly as their human companions. Whether you’re exploring the Sierra Nevada foothills, the Sacramento River corridor, or the hidden gems of Yolo and Lodi farm country, you might just find yourself forgetting about that “other” wine country.

For a comprehensive guide, check out, which offers listings for wineries in Gold Country, Central Valley, and Sacramento County.

Suggestions for a Pawsitively Perfect Day:

  • Start in Sacramento: Begin your journey at the heart of the wine region. At Revolution Wines, you and your dog can enjoy the latest wine releases on the patio, accompanied by a small plate or a full meal.
  • Head to Clarksburg: Follow the Sacramento River south to Clarksburg. Stop by Miner’s Leap Winery to savor a glass of crisp Albarino on a shady patio beside a century-old barn.
  • Explore Lodi: Spend a day in Lodi, starting at Jessie’s Grove, where leashed dogs are welcome on the picturesque grounds of a 19th-century farmstead. Then, head to the quaint village of Lockeford, home to several dog-friendly tasting rooms.
