In order to make great wine, you must always have a winery dog (or 7)! Meet our K-9 companions:
Blitzen was born on Christmas day on Fred & Sally's kitchen floor back in 2002. She is half lab and half border collie and is a very sweet girl. Blitzen likes to spend her days near Fred in the vineyard or lounging on the lawn in front of the tasting room soaking up some sun.
The newest addition to our pack, Lucy is a two year old yellow lab. You can find her wherever Fred is; or laying at the top of the driveway happily greeting visitors. Lucy loves her toys and sticks, and you will almost always find her toting a stuffed animal or large branch in her mouth.
Chewie belongs to our Winemaker, Andrew Schweiger. Chewie frequents the vineyard Monday through Friday (his regular 9-5) and is the official guest announcer for the winery. He is the vocal boy of the crowd and enjoys saying hello to everyone that visits!
Kona, Hana, Duke and Bella
Kona and Hana belong to Diana Schweiger who lives just off the estate. Kona is a 5 year old German Shorthair Pointer and Hana is a 4 year old Brittany Spaniel. They love to run down to the winery on the weekends to say hi to guests!
Duke and Bella belong to James, our General Manager. They also enjoy visiting the winery on the weekends and getting some attention from visitors. Duke is a 6 year old Brittany Spaniel and Bella is a 2 year old Bluetick Coonhound.
