This Saturday, August 8th, is the Canines Uncorked event that benefits the Oregon Humane Society. Pack up the pooches and head out to Washington County to some wonderful dog-friendly vineyards and wineries.
A “License to Taste” passport includes free wine tastings and dog activities at each participating winery. Passports are $40 in advance ($45 day of), with 100% of the passport proceeds benefiting pets in need. The passport is good through the month of August, so you can still enjoy tastings at each participating winery even if you can’t make it to every one on Aug. 8. For information on where to find a passport and other event details, visit the Canines Uncorked event page.
