Sunny Tri-Valley Wineries Welcome Dogs
The Tri-Valley region, an hour east of San Francisco, is nothing if not full of surprises, especially when it comes to wine. Production is centered in the rolling Livermore Valley AVA (American Viticultural Area), where the first grapes were planted in the 1840s. More than 50 wineries, two dozen of them proudly dog-friendly, have since sprung from the rich soil, and they’re all close enough for a day trip or overnight trip from the Bay Area or Sacramento. So leash up your pup, crack a window and take off into the so-close-but-so-far-away countryside. more »

A laid-back atmosphere and dog-friendly vibe prevail at many Tri-Valley wineries where you can both make yourselves at home. Most establishments are located in the picturesque Livermore Valley, one of the country’s oldest winemaking regions. Wine-grape cultivation started here in the 1840s, and today, more than 50 wineries, 23 of them proudly dog-friendly, share an AVA whose terroir is characterized by warm days, cool nights and gravel-based soils. You can check out DogTrekker’s dog-friendly Tri-Valley wine trail before heading out. more »

With 40-plus wineries tucked into a landscape of rolling hills and sun-dappled valleys, the Tri-Valley region's Livermore Valley Wine Country shares a landscape very similar to the more famous Napa Valley on the other side of the Coast Range. The region’s boutique labels are produced in small lots and not widely known, which makes it all the more fun to go exploring. The sunny Tri-Valley produces several notable cabernets, and plays a pivotal role in the history of California chardonnaymore »

The Tri-Valley region is sometimes wrongly dismissed by those who don’t live there as a drive-by destination on the way to somewhere else. That’s their loss and your gain. The  intrepid DogTrekkers who take time to explore this East Bay region encompassing three adjacent valleys and five dog-friendly communities are amply rewarded. more »
