Doggy Winery Tours®

Bella the dog friendly bus will chauffeur you to some of the great wine regions of Victoria. There is a seat for you and your dog and all you have to do is sit back, pop your paws up and relax being with other Peeps and Paws. Each Doggy Winery Tour® is handcrafted and includes a pooch massage and movie over lunch from our professional team. 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. We meet for some essential sniff and social time before getting comfy on Bella. Take in the beautiful scenery of Victoria – window licking encouraged! Read more in the destinations tab below.

Three Fabulous Destinations

  • We visit approximately 2-3 wineries depending on the tour, most wineries require the dogs to be on lead with the tastings conducted outside. Each Doggy Winery Tour® has some off leash time at either a winery, park or beach. The tours are carefully crafted to ensure the dogs have time to enjoy their day too.
  • During lunch the dogs get a movie and massage from our talented team on Bella the dog welcoming bus whilst their humans go inside to a restaurant/winery for a 2 course lunch.
  • Each itinerary is unique and changes regularly. We recommend wearing walking shoes as there is can be a walk included either at a park or between wineries.
