Okay, I don’t have a dog (yet!) but I have been asked a lot of about dog-friendly wineries and places in the Swan Valley. So I thought it was about time I put a post together on it 🙂
I do have two cats (Fizzy & Crackle), who to be honest with you are pretty much the size of small dogs anyway, so I understand what great drinking buddies our 4-legged friends make. Unfortunately it would be a bit weird if I took the cats out to a winery, but if you have a doggie then do it! A lot of wineries have their very own wine dogs too, so if you’re like me and don’t have a dog then you can still go for free wine dog cuddles!
A big thanks to the lovely people at the Swan Valley Winemakers Association who helped me find out who is and isn’t dog-friendly. As I come across new spots, I will add to this post so it’s probably best you bookmark this page right now.
I would encourage you to double check with the winery first, to ensure they are still friendly and if they have any specific rules.
“Lamont’s love dogs – all breeds, all sizes” – their words not mine! There is also a super cute little energetic dog around the cellar door 😉

Windy Creek Estate
Yes Windy Creek and their beautiful cellar door are dog-friendly! I love this spot, great hospitality, the wines are tasty and excellent value and it’s just a beautiful spot to relax for the afternoon.
Please note dogs are allowed outside only. Therefore if you are visiting on a hot day, please take this into consideration.
