  • Mutt Lynch Tasting Room is located in adorable downtown Windsor.

  • Go to the Windsor Farmers Market on Sunday, and then walk on over to the Mutt Lynch Tasting Room WITH your dog.

  • Doggy water bowls welcome you out front.

  • How cute is the sign below?

  • See where it says ‘Hound Lounge’? Perfect description.

  • Mutt Lynch is always having fun with wine related dog wordplay.

  • I receive direct messages on Insta about……

  • Where to wine taste with their dog.

  • I always list Mutt Lynch as a top choice.

  • My chocolate lab, Lexi (aka @sonomawinedog), goes on most of my wine adventures.

  • Lexi gives Mutt Lynch two paws up.

  • The Mutt Lynch tasting room is fun and friendly!

  • What the tasting room lacks in wine barrels and vineyard views they make up for in:

  • Seriously adorable and unique shopping treasures for dog lovers.

  • How cute is this doggy wine-bottle purse holder????

  • They also offer a COMPLIMENTARY “Dog Treat Tasting” featuring some delicious wine country dog treats.

  • They even display the treats out on a plate to make the doggies feel EXTRA special.

Wine Pick

  • I went with The House Of Mutt Lynch Zinfandel

  • A Dry Creek Vally Zin from the Perotti Vineyard.

  • Mutt Lynch has a line of Reserve Wines called MBF meaning ‘Man’s Best Friend’.

  • These are limited production wines.

  • The MBF wines are special to Brenda, the winemaker.

  • Brenda has a personal relationship with Ed and Bruce, father and son growers.

  • She produces small amounts of zin from their grapes.

  • Her signature combo……

  • Perotti grapes + aging the wine in 100% French oak barrels.

  • Her ‘signature’ zinfandel style.

  • Only 189 cases produced.

Dog Approved

  • Yes!

  • By far the most dog friendly winery in all of Sonoma County.


Social Media Worthy

  • For sure take you dog in and snap some pics.

  • A picture of your dog and the treat tasting is Social Media GOLD!

  • Another awesome pick would be a bottle with YOUR DOG on the label!!!

  • Mutt Lynch has a Leader Of The Pack red and white wine.

  • You send a photo of your dog in; they make a custom label.

  • How cute would your dog be sitting next to their very own CUSTOM wine bottle?!?!?

  • OH…and the tasting room staff AND all wine drinkers in the tasting room do not mock or roll their eyes when you take pictures of your dog.

  • In fact they help and encourage you.

  • It probably took 20 pics to get Lexi perfectly posed.

  • The gal behind the tasting room bar held a treat for me while I got Lexi picture ready.


Feel Good Vibes

  • Dogs are my weakness.

  • I cry with joy when I see happy dog FB videos.

  • I bawl like a baby when I see any sad or dogs in need/abused dog videos.

  • Tasting at Mutt Lynch was like finding my dog tribe.

  • Mutt Lynch is fully committed to helping dogs locally, nationally and internationally through animal rescue organizations.

  • They have several wines under the ‘Wines That Give Back’ label.

  • For every sale of these wines 25% of the purchase price goes to animal organizations.

  • Please note: The labels of these wines are SO BEAUTIFUL and COOL!!!!

  • You will for sure want every one in your wine collection.

  • My dog loving friends are getting bottles to support the cause from now on!


Wine Nerd Facts


  • There are many fabulous women winemakers in the industry.

  • Brenda Lynch, of Mutt Lynch Wine, is one of them.

  • Another Wine Nerd Fact:

  • Mutt Lynch has a rare breed varietal called CHARBANO in their MBF collection.
