Lucy is Linda's brand new baby and our new Wine Dog! She is a Golden Doodle and so far, she's been so much fun! She loves belly rubs and head pats, enjoys running around the vineyards with our guests and their pups, and she especially loves annoying her big brother, Winston! She can't wait to meet you! 

We have to get to know Lucy a bit more to find out what kind of wine she should have, but stay tuned!



Winston is our current vineyard dog! He is Spencer's lovable English Cream Retriever. You'll most likely see him riding around in the golf cart with Spencer or laying beside anyone eating snacks. 

His red wine is 50% Cabernet Sauvignon & 50% Merlot. Being the class act that he is, he's donating a portion of the proceeds from his wine to the Cherryland Humane Society.


Brix was our lovable Bernese Mountain Dog. He loved belly rubs, chasing flies, and stealing samples of venison jerky. His name, Brix, refers to the sugar level in the grapes, and important indicator of ripeness. His namesake wine, Brix, is bubbly and friendly, just like he was.


Cooper was our second official tasting room mascot and greeter. Our laid back, fun loving Bernese Mountain dog enjoyed the special attention he received from our tasting room guests. Cooper endeared himself to many of our guests by happily jumping into their vehicles as they were getting ready to depart. His sweet white wine blend pairs well with Cooper’s favorite food, cheese!


Otis, our Yellow Labrador Retriever, was the Vineyard’s official greeter. He would greet our tasting room guests with his tail wagging and his welcoming personality. His loyalty to us all made him worthy of his own wine label
