Pinot for Paws

We call this part of the season the dog days of summer, and how better to celebrate than with wine and dogs? Aug. 26 is National Dog Day, so Greenhill Humane Society is teaming up with Sweet Cheeks Winery to celebrate with Pinot for Paws at the vineyard and a matching wine label from the “winery dog” art series, which features two of Sweet Cheek Winery’s beloved pups. Bottles with that label will donate 50 percent of their proceeds to the animal shelter’s capital campaign. Sasha Elliott, Greenhill’s community engagement manager, says, “This generous donation will be used towards our building project that will expand and improve our currently Green Hill Rd. shelter by combining our two shelter locations.” Elliott says they expect to raise $18,000 through this partnership, and adds, “Sweet Cheeks is welcoming people and their dogs on a special vineyard hiking trail to be able to experience the beauty of the vineyard up close and personal for our event.” Keep your furry friend on leash at the vineyard, and make sure to pick up a bottle or two to support Greenhill’s capital campaign.

Pinot for Paws is 9:30 am to noon on Saturday, Aug. 26, at Sweet Cheeks Winery, 27007 Briggs Hill Road. Vineyard tours run from 9:30 am to 11:30 am. FREE, kids and dogs are welcome. — Kelly Kenoyer
