Pawsome Wine Events Springing Up in Virginia

Virginia Wine Country
Linden, Virginia

With the warming weather, Pawsome wine events are starting to sprout. Two of special note to Wine Dog fans this weekend.

Saturday, March 16, from 11-3, the Humane Society of Warren County is hosting a pet adoption event at Philip Carter Winery  Word has it that they are bringing adoptable animals and baby bunnies will be on site. And PC will have crockpots with stews, soups and chilis to chase away the last of the winter blues.

Also on Saturnday, March 16, from 6-9, Barrel Oak Winery is hosting Barks & Barrels. This is the spring fundraiser for the Animal Welfare League of Arlington, which is celebrating its 75th Anniversary. Tickets include two complimentary drinks (wine or beer), an AWLA 75th anniversary "Paws off my wine" wine glass, delicious vegan snacks, and, best of all, the proceeds from each ticket sold will directly benefit animals in need at AWLA! Barrel Oak Winery will also donate 10% of all additional drink purchases to AWLA. Tickets can be purchased here.

Of course, just about every winery will be wearin' green this weekend.

Hope you find your Pot of GOld on the Wine Trail!
