Grassini Family Vineyards is located in the historic Presidio Neighborhhood, just a few blocks from State Street. If you’re a lover of red wines, this place is a must visit! It was voted Best Winery and Best Tasting Room by the readers of both the Santa Barbara Independent and the Santa Barbara News-Press! The winery is family owned and operated and features  a cozy indoor tasting room and two outdoor patios, perfect for you and your pup! They also offer heating lamps during the colder months. This winery is extremely dog-welcoming (lots of pets and treats included!) and the service is top-notch.

If you’re willing to travel up north from Santa Barbara, you’ll find yourself in Santa Barbara’s wine county in central coast. We love Riverbench for their superb wines and stunning location. Be sure to reserve an appointment for a tasting experience on their website — the tasting arrangements are prepaid on the site and you can expect a private table and one hour tasting experience. The environment is relaxed and dog-friendly (hydration stations included), and you’ll be surrounded by greenery and plenty of photo ops.
