“BobDog Winery Is Well Worth the Stop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

We have been wine tasting in Sonoma and Mendocino Counties for a long time. We found BobDog Vineyards a couple years ago. This is now one of our favorite places to wine taste each time we go up.

You need to call and make an appointment to taste wine. The owners work their small winery and are sometimes busy with the work. The owners are the people who share their wines with you and make your visit far more fun and educational. The wines are very good.

There are two things that make this winery a really fun place to visit. First, the drive to the winery is an adventure. It is a fun drive up the mountain to their winery. You definitely need directions to find it but the drive is well worth it.

Secondly, the personalities of the owners make you feel like friends are sharing their favorite wines with you. It is a very personal and fun experience. This is not the stand in line type of wine tasting. This is one that you will remember.

BobDog Winery is also known as Skypine Vineyards. The web site gives you contact info: http://www.bobdogwine.com/

We will be there again in March so hope to see some of you.

“Anniversary Trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

The wine makers did a great job of educating us on the art of wine making. We particularly enjoyed their Cabernet Franc and "port" style wine. View was fantastic...worth the drive!!!

Our greatest joy is introducing our guests to an educational experience about growing and making premium wine, allowing this special place to create that totally unique experience in the wine country. Our guests often are celebrating special occasions like anniversaries, birthdays, and honeymoons. And there is no better place the Sky Pine Vineyards home of Bob Dog Wines. Thank you for your kind remarks, and come back again for that next special celebration.
