Doggy Winery Tours

Bella the dog welcoming bus will chauffeur you to some of the great wine regions of Victoria. There is a seat for you and a seat for your dog and all you have to do is sit back, pop your paws up and relax. Each tour is handcrafted and includes a pooch massage and movie over lunch from our professional and qualified Dog Carers. Whether you are coming on your own or with a group of friends we will take care of everything from pampering the dogs to holding a lead while you sip your wine. Sorry hoomans, pooches get the window seat!
