Which Seneca Lake Wineries and Breweries are Dog-Friendly?

Your pup is your best friend and that means when it’s time to make your escape to the Finger Lakes, you had better believe that they’re coming along too! Fortunately, the Seneca Lake area has quite a few dog-friendly wineries and breweries to check out while you’re unwinding or kicking back with friends and family on your trip. 

Here are the pet-friendly places you should add to your Finger Lakes vacation itinerary: 

Boundary Breaks

Did you know that this winery has its own dedicated dog park? It’s true! With a fenced in space that gives your pupper plenty of room to roam off-leash, Boundary Breaks is one of our favorite places to recommend to dog owners when they visit the area. You’ll also find plenty of shade in their outdoor tent (pack a picnic and a few treats for your best friend, too!). 

Bagley’s Poplar Ridge Vineyards

When you visit this winery, make sure to say hello to Willie Nelson -- their official winery dog! Stop by the tasting room and hear all about this crew’s love of dogs, especially chocolate Labradors, while your doggo enjoys a complimentary treat and a cool drink of water. 

Fulkerson Winery

If your dog loves to walk then you’ll love touring this spot on Seneca Lake. There are three miles of trails to explore plus water bowls and lots of outdoor seating to chill in once you get back.

Castle Grisch Winery

Stop here and you’ll find a fresh (and free!) dog treat for your four-legged friend along with water bowls to stay hydrated. 

Grist Iron Brewing

We always recommend Grist Iron for great drinks and eats, but did you know it’s dog-friendly too? This brewery is a must-add to your Finger Lakes vacation itinerary. 

Two Goats Brewing

Burdett’s own Two Goats Brewing is a great stop along the Seneca Lake wine and beer trail. You and your dog will love the outdoor space and the beers are fantastic!

Lucky Hare Brewing Company

Located in Hector, Lucky Hare is a perfect spot to take your pup. There’s plenty of outdoor seating to enjoy and pets are welcome.

Fox Run Vineyards

Close to Geneva, Fox Run has a dog-friendly wine garden and welcomes dogs into the barrel room when it’s a rainy day. Bo’s Bones treats are available for sampling and purchase, plus you can find ways to support the Yates County Humane Society when you visit. Heading there in June? Don’t miss their Dogs and Dogs event!

J.R. Dill Winery

This Seneca Lake winery welcomes dogs and also has water bowls and treats, so you can rest assured that your pup will be right at home when you stop here. There’s a large lawn to explore, too!

Leidenfrost Vineyards

This laid-back Seneca Lake favorite is just a short drive north from Watkins Glen. Well-behaved canines will find a bowl of fresh water and a biscuit when they visit the tasting room plus there’s a large outdoor space with lots of seating. You can sit and sip while your pup takes a snooze in the sunshine. 

Wagner Vineyards

Your dog may never want to leave the lush, large grounds of Wagner Vineyards. Not only will you find some great libations here, but a huge outdoor space with amazing views. Plenty of room to roam and dogs are welcome to join in on the fun on the lawn!

Lakewood Vineyards

When you stop in at Lakewood, expect to see resident canines who come to work with the staff -- it’s a full crew of dog lovers! This spot has a large lawn to roam and a self-guided vineyard tour that’ll be the good stretch of the legs for you and your pupperooni! Did you know that they also support the Schuyler County Humane Society?
