In Paso Robles, every dog has his day! You already know that your beloved pup is good for your heart and soul. But did you know that Fido is also good for your blood pressure? Not only do dog owners enjoy better overall health, but you may actually live longer thanks to those furry friends at home! Considering we’re all spending a lot more time around the old homestead, why not celebrate your pooch’s fun-loving, nurturing spirit with a well-appointed outing? It’s time to toast to your best friend: whether big, small, scruffy or smooth. When you hit these dog-friendly Paso Robles wineries, you’re always welcome to take ’em along for the ride! As a bonus, stop by our new Visitor Center in the cool Paso Market Walk at 1835 Spring Street and grab a bag of locally made “Paso Pup” biscuits, made with the finest ingredients or luscious, authentic, artisan gelato masterfully crafted by Leo Leo Gelato.

1. Wag more at Wines of the West

Looking for wag-alicious wine off the beaten path? Head west, where the wine offerings are as diverse as the breeds at the Westminster Dog Show. Wines of the West Roadhouse and Wine Tasting features more than a bevy of unique independent wineries (including cans of Alloy wines and everyone’s jammy fave: Purple Cowboy), it’s also a casual hangout perfect for your pooch. The rustic, outdoor patio was made for ear scratches between sips.

Get going: Open Thursday-Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Schedule a tasting here: www.pasowinesofthewest.com/visit/tasting-experiences

2. Sniff around at Rio Seco Vineyard and Winery

Just like the majestic Chihuahua, Rio Seco Vineyard and Winery is proud to be little. Here, small batch bottles exemplify the best of New World of wine exploration with an emphasis on quality over quantity. You’ll love the all-estate grown fruit, including zinfandel, cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc, syrah, petite sirah, merlot, viognier, and roussanne. Your furry friend will love rolling around in the grassy picnic area, exploring the dry creek bed and meandering through the olive grove.

Get going: Open Thursday-Monday from 11 a.m.-4 p.m.; reservations suggested.  Open by appointment only on Tuesday and Wednesday. Call  (805) 237-8884 for more information.

3. A peaceful outing at Penman Springs Vineyards

You know that feeling of zen you get when you spend a few minutes petting your pup’s velvet ears? Extend that vibe as long as possible as you relax into a dog day’s afternoon at Penman Springs Vineyards. Visitors (both human and canine) can feel a sense of serenity upon stepping paw in the parking lot. A super welcoming, rural landscape offers up country quiet (yes, it’s hard to believe downtown Paso Robles is just three short miles away). Relax in the elevated picnic area and enjoy the fabulous views. Savor estate grown wine while your best buddy laps up a cool bowl of water. OK, we’re ready for a nap, too!

Get going: Thursday-Sunday by appointment only from noon-4 p.m. Schedule a tasting here: www.penmansprings.com/tastings

4. Belly rubs at Kiamie Wine Cellars

It’s funny how our dog’s vibe tends to resemble our own, isn’t it? Then, there are dog-and-human pairings that appear totally opposite, yet somehow work out beautifully. At Kiamie Wine Cellars, two great minds of differing backgrounds came together to create a diverse yet totally complementary style of winemaking. If you love blends with your belly rubs, Kiamie should be on your radar! Savor the best fruit from Paso’s famed westside mountain vineyards in a a scenic, dog-friendly setting featuring shaded picnic and up-cycled wine barrels. Just be aware: the friendly resident goat (named G.O.A.T) may be curious to meet your dog, too.

Get going: Open daily from 11a.m. to 5 p.m.; appointments strongly encouraged. Call (805) 226 8333 for mor einformation.

5. Happy go lucky at Hoyt Family Vineyards

Don’t worry, be happy! That’s easier said than done—but keeping a smile on your face is a lot more doable with Fido’s goofy grin in tow. Need a mood boost? Hop in the car, roll down the windows and head for Hoyt Family Vineyards, where the joy is boundless (well, if your idea if joy is exceptional tempranillo, cabernet, viogner, grenache, syrah, zinfandel, pinot noir and petit verdot born from the Willow Creak AVA). Whether you take a guided tour of the 100-acre property or just kick back on the ranch, or visit the downtown tasting room, you’re sure to find something to wag about.

Get going: Open by appointment only. Schedule a tasting here: www.cellarpass.com/profile/hoyt-family-vineyards?eventId=19674
