Dog-Friendly Swan Valley Wineries

Dog-Friendly Swan Valley Wineries
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. So here are the confirmed dog-friendly wineries in the Swan Valley…

Upper Reach Winery

Upper Reach is definitely dog-friendly however be warned their gorgeous 1.5 year old golden retriever named Indi may be about and will want to play with your dog! The Cellar door is happy to provide water for your dog, but please no dogs are allowed in the restaurant. Also dogs do need to be kept on a lead. There are lots of vineyard posts to tie them up to while you try some wines, and everyone is welcome to enjoy a stroll on the 20 minute vineyard trail around the property.

Lamont’s Winery

I love when Lamont’s contacted me to let me know they’re dog friendly, this is what I got “Lamont’s love dogs – all breeds, all sizes. We actually prefer dogs to people!! Regards, Digby”. There is also a super cute little energetic dog around the cellar door 😉

Address:  85 Bisdee Road, Millendon WA 6056
Phone: (08) 9296 4485

Windy Creek Estate

They don’t mind dogs at the winery but like to be given a phone call first as they do have 3 dogs of their own on the property and usually put them away so they don’t get upset seeing other dogs in their yard. Totally fair enough, so just make sure you phone ahead guys 🙂

Address: 27 Stock Road, Herne Hill WA 6056
Phone: (08) 9296 1057

Olive Farm Wines & The Cheese Barrel

The downstairs part of The Cheese Barrel is dog friendly as long as they are leashed. They do have two winery dogs (pictured at the start of this post) that can come and visit (they are very well-behaved but not leashed). The downstairs area of The Cheese Barrel is also where the children’s sand pit is so your dog must like children. The staff is always happy to fill a bowl with a bit of water as well of course.

Address: 920 Great Northern Highway, Millendon WA 6056
Phone: (08) 9296 4539

A big thanks to @Blue_Bobtail for sharing her lovely photos with us from her visit to The Cheese Barrel with her gorgeous pooch!

Ugly Duckling Wines

Ugly Duckling is definitely dog-friendly and they will provide a bowl of water for your pooch too. Plenty of outdoor seating so it’s a great place to take the pup, enjoy a bottle of wine or two and one of their amazing pies or platters!

Address: 7790 West Swan Road, West Swan WA 6055
Phone: 0428 349 855

Edgecombe Brothers Winery

Edgecombe Bros are also a dog-friendly and family-friendly spot in the Valley. They got back to me on twitter last night saying “we’re always happy to accommodate well-behaved doggies with good café manners!”. Plus don’t forget Edgies Burger Nights on Fridays and Saturdays.

Address: 1733 Gnangara Rd, Ellenbrook WA 6069
Phone: (08) 9296 4307

Harris Organic Wines

Harris Organic in the Upper Swan are dog-friendly. If you’re taking your 4-legged buddy along, just make sure to ask what rules apply when you get there so everyone is happy.

Phone: (08) 9296 0216

  1. Harris wines was no good. The owner allowed their little chihuahua loose as we were leaving and it attacked our dog. The owner was also super weird and rude, highly recommend dog lovers and alike keep clear.

    Hope you continue to update this list as it’s always good to know where we can take our favourite four legged friends

  2. That’s so great to hear you had a wonderful time at Lamonts with your pooch and that she was treated so well!

  3. Visited Lamonts this morning with our Italian Mastiff she was welcomed inside as if she was part of the human crew. The whole team came over for pats. Food and wine are DELICIOUS! Our pup was even treated to some leftovers from the kitchen.

  4. Olive Farm & Cheese Barrel, it doesn’t really work. Went there took one look at where we would have to stay with our dogs and left. Went to the Ugly Duckling, 100%. We could taste wine with our dogs laying at feet, we could sit down with a platter for 2 and a bottle of Shiraz, enjoy the musician. Our doggies happy to relax under the table. To be fair Olive farm is not set up for the doggy set where as Ugly Duckling is. We enjoyed ourselves and so is on the must go back list.

  5. Billie Jean! Love the name and you should most definitely try the Cab at Olive Farm Nina – it’s a stunner 😉

  6. Thanks for this Casey, awesome post about two of my favourite things – wine and dogs. I’m so glad I can take my dog Billie Jean on my next wine tasting tour of the Swan Valley, she’s a Cab Sav girl.

Grab a glass of wine and let me know what you think...
