The Winery Dogs

Band plans to add more dates

The Winery Dogs have announced a handful of California and Las Vegas tour dates for May 2023. The trek is part of the band’s 202III World Tour which has them trekking the greater US before heading off to Latin America and Europe .

“California (and Las Vegas), you’ve been patiently waiting and here they finally are!! May 202III,” the band shares on its socials. “Yes we realize there are A LOT of markets on the west coast we are missing (we see you AZ, CO, OR, WA, etc) but this was all we were able to squeeze in during the available window between Latin America and Europe (and the markets where the promoters stepped up with reasonable offers)…we are already talking of extending this tour into 2024 because of the great demand for shows, so fingers crossed we can get to you then. In the meantime, perhaps take a trip to us if we’re not making it to you! C-ya then…”

California dates start May 17th in Los Angeles with stops in Anaheim, Solana Beach, Ventura, San Francisco, Fresno and Roseville before wrapping May 28th in Las Vegas.

The power rock trio of vocalist Richie Kotzen, bassist Billy Sheehan and drummer Mike Portnoy released their third studio album, III, last month via the band’s Three Dog Music label with distribution by Burnside Distribution/The Orchard. Following in the footsteps of their first two albums, III was once again self-produced by The Winery Dogs and mixed by longtime band associate Jay Ruston. The album’s first single and video, “Xanadu,” was released in December with “ Mad World ” following in January.

III is the follow-up to the band’s critically acclaimed and Billboard-charting album, Hot Streak , which was released October 2, 2015 on Loud & Proud Records via RED, a division of Sony Music Entertainment. After landing in the top five on many of Amazon’s pre-order charts, including No. 1 on the Amazon BestSellers/Hard Rock chart and No. 1 on the Amazon Pre-Orders/Hard Rock Albums charts, it sold 30% more than their 2013 self-titled debut, landing them on various Billboard album charts including No. 2 on Top Current Alternative Albums, No. 5 on Top Current Hard Music and Top Hard Music Albums, No. 6 on Top Current Rock Albums and Album Core/Genre Rock,” No. 15 Top Current Physical Albums, No. 16 Top Current Albums, and No. 30 on the Top 200 Albums chart.

THE WINERY DOGS Announce 'III' Album, Early 2023 Tour

The DOGS are finally back in town! THE WINERY DOGS , that is!

It's been, well, a literal dog's age since the vibrant powerhouse trio known as THE WINERY DOGS — guitarist/vocalist Richie Kotzen , bassist/vocalist Billy Sheehan and drummer/vocalist Mike Portnoy — marked their recording territory with new music. But now, following a seven-year break from the studio, THE WINERY DOGS are back in full force with their aptly named third album "III" , which is set for release on February 3, 2023 on the band's Three Dog Music label (via Burnside Distribution / The Orchard ). Following in the footsteps of their first two albums, "III" was once again produced by THE WINERY DOGS and mixed by longtime band associate Jay Ruston .

Pre-orders will be available starting Friday, December 9 on CD and all digital formats, which include an instant download of the album's first song to be released, "Xanadu" . A vinyl edition of "III" will also be forthcoming in just a few months.

While the all-out smokin' opening track and lead single "Xanadu" , title might evoke different imagery in more progressive-leaning listening circles, Kotzen 's zen-seeking, hard-rocking ruminations on "Xanadu" once again shine a light on the eternal power of good collaboration. "Coming out of the gates, that's a barnburner," acknowledges Portnoy . "It's one of the fiercest tracks on the album." Incidentally, eagle ears will also delight in picking up on how definitively Portnoy drops his drumsticks right as the song concludes. "At the end there, you're hearing me toss my sticks — not in frustration, but very much in satisfaction of what we had just done," he clarifies with a laugh.

From the clarion call for connection and societal understanding in "Mad World" to the door-opening personal realizations of "Breakthrough" to the undeniable muscle-flexing reign of the white-hot "Pharaoh" and the album-closing energy spillage of "The Red Wine" , all 50-plus minutes of "III" prove THE WINERY DOGS haven't lost a step when it comes to conjuring fresh hooks, gutbucket grooves, and bold harmonies.

That said, it's been a long road back to the collective compound for Kotzen , Sheehan and Portnoy . Back in 2015-16, they hit the road hard together to showcase their mettle as hardcore (you guessed it) road dogs in order to build upon the success of their well-received 2015 sophomore studio effort, "Hot Streak" , by touring all across the globe. Eventually, the seasoned trio returned to their respective corners to focus on various other projects for the ensuing next few years. But when that live itch needed another scratching, these three working musicians knew just what they had to do.

"We wanted to tour," Kotzen confirms succinctly of THE WINERY DOGS ' 22-date run in early 2019 that was appropriately dubbed "Who Let The Dogs Out" , before adding, "We had to get those cylinders firing together once again." Concurs Portnoy , "That was a fun little tour that reignited our enthusiasm — and that's also when we knew a third album was definitely in the cards." Adds Sheehan , "Getting back together like that was really refreshing. We could relax a bit and enjoy being together onstage, playing without any pressure. It was a beautiful thing."

Duly reinvigorated, THE WINERY DOGS were finally aligned to record again by initially ensconcing themselves together in Kotzen 's intimate, cozy home studio in Southern California to jam on new material that was mainly created in the moment during many hours of face-to-face musical interaction. Always the driven and intuitive songwriter, Kotzen displays a definitive M.O. whenever he's working out new songs in the studio by scatting melodies and putting forth short bursts of semi-improvised lines and phrases that will soon enough transform into sharply honed subject matter. "My attitude is this: when I'm in the studio creating new music, the last thing on my mind is, 'How am I gonna do it live?'" Kotzen admits. "The reality is, I may never get to where I'll do it live. What's relevant is getting the vision that's in my head, in my heart, and in my soul to come out of the speakers. If it gets to the point where the tour is booked, the dates are confirmed, and we all get back in the rehearsal room together, that's when you figure out, 'Okay, how do I interpret this in a way it can be delivered live, and still be the same song?'"

"III" is the follow-up to the band's critically acclaimed and Billboard -charting album "Hot Streak" , which was released October 2, 2015 on Loud & Proud Records via RED (a division of Sony Music Entertainment ). After landing in the Top Five on many of Amazon 's pre-order charts, including No. 1 on the Amazon BestSellers/Hard Rock chart and No. 1 on the Amazon Pre-Orders/Hard Rock Albums charts, it sold 30% more than their 2013 self-titled debut, landing them on various Billboard album charts including No. 2 on "Top Current Alternative Albums," No. 5 on "Top Current Hard Music" and "Top Hard Music Albums," No. 6 on "Top Current Rock Albums" and "Album Core / Genre Rock," No. 15 "Top Current Physical Albums," No. 16 "Top Current Albums," and No. 30 on the "Top 200 Albums" chart.

Upon its release, "Hot Streak" racked up rave reviews. hailed, " 'Hot Streak' is the trio's second album, and its loose, friendly feel shows that the trio doesn't feel compelled to rely on instrumental pyrotechnics. The bluesy, soulful 'Think it Over' would appeal to those who admire THE ALLMAN BROTHERS , while 'Captain Love' shows that the band also has some hard rock energy to unleash, and the title track lets fly some of the technical proficiency that its members are known for." And praised, " 'Hot Streak' picks up where their debut CD left off, but showcases the band coming into their own with straight-ahead rockers like 'Oblivion' , 'Captain Love' and 'Devil You Know' ."

"III" track listing:

01. Xanadu 02. Mad World 03. Breakthrough 04. Rise 05. Stars 06. The Vengeance 07. Pharaoh 08. Gaslight 09. Lorelei 10. The Red Wine

In addition to the new music, fans will also be excited to hear that THE WINERY DOGS is hitting the worldwide concert trail starting February 15 in Greensburg, Pennsylvania at the Palace Theatre for their "202III World Tour" .

Live reviews

The Winery Dogs... this may be the MOST talented 3 piece Rock Band around. Their live show really shows the power of these 3 players; Richie Kotzen, Mike Portnoy and Billy Sheehan. Although they only have one album out, they show promise when player unrecorded stuff that will likely be on their next album. Mixing in some Jimmy Hendrix, Ritchie's solo stuff and a crazy Bass Solo by Billy. They even played Shy Boy from Billy's former gig with David Lee Roth. Saw them at The Coach House. While the sound is great, seating is a bit challenging when try to give a standing ovation; Mass Dinner Style seating, elbow to elbow. Their harder rockin' songs really came alive and their ballads were powerful live. The studio album is great but to see them live will make you a fan forever!

Um dos melhores shows que já vi, muito bom mesmo. O Portnoy tocando muito assim com Kotzen e Billy, realmente é um espetáculo de alto nível. Espero que voltem a BH em uma próxima turnê com mais um trabalho inédito para nós belorizontinos.

The concert was amazing, they never disappoint, the only problem was the venue. Here you pay for a ticket but that doesn't mean you will be able to see anything, even if you get to the venue when the doors are opening. As it happened.

sacris55’s profile image

Completely worth a road trip!!! Highly anticipated and we was completely impressed!!! Such a talented group of men. So much talent, and undulating passion on their stage. High energy from beginning to end!!!

rhondablubaugh’s profile image

Fantastic high energy show from both the band and audience. The Winery Dogs always bring it. Great set list which is the same they've had for most of this tour, but not a weak song in the bunch.

darren-hightower’s profile image

Impecable, outstanding!!! Haven't heard anybody sound better than them. This is the third time I've seen The Winery Dogs and they just keep getting better. Fan for life for sure!

jenniffer-gonzalez’s profile image

Excelente concierto de una super banda de Rock, para poner un pero, el sonido no fue del todo bueno. Considero la Sala Apolo como una de las mejores salas, actualmente en Barcelona.

10 Best Dog-friendly Wineries in Napa Valley

Visiting a Napa Valley winery is always a good time, but it’s an even better time when your trusty companion is by your side (or, at least at your feet). These days, a lot of people enjoy traveling to Wine Country with their pets, even if the destination is only an afternoon at a winery. That’s why we sniffed out these dog-friendly wineries in Napa Valley, where your pampered pet is allowed to join in the wine tasting festivities.

It’s important to note that at most pet-friendly wineries, your dog will need to remain leashed and won’t be allowed in the tasting room, wine cave, or cellar. However, as long as Fifi or Fido is well-behaved and considerate (no barking at other guests or dogs, please), these Napa wineries happily welcome you and your faithful four-legged friend to enjoy a taste of the good life, and maybe even a biscuit or two.

Where to Enjoy Pet-friendly Wine Tastings in Napa Valley

Tamber Bey Vineyards

You and your dog will both enjoy saddling up to the picturesque Tamber Bey Vineyards located at Sundance Ranch in Calistoga, home to the largest horse facility in Napa Valley. While there, not only will you be able to sip Bordeaux-style blends and premium single-vineyard estate wines, but you can say hello to the horses, both high-performance Arabians, as well as some that have been rescued from abuse and neglect. Your dog will love it because there’s lots of outdoor space and even a dog park. Plus, they will get plenty of water and tasty food. Feeling left out? Don’t. At Tamber Bey you have the option of adding a cookie pairing to your tasting. Bone appetit!

The Winery Dogs (Richie Kotzen, Billy Sheehan, Mike Portnoy) Announce New Album and 2023 US Tour

The trio hits the road in February in support of its third full-length LP

winery dogs new album iii

The Winery Dogs — the supergroup featuring singer-guitarist Richie Kotzen , bassist Billy Sheehan (Mr. Big, David Lee Roth), and drummer Mike Portnoy (Metal Allegiance, ex-Dream Theater) have announced a new album and 2023 US tour.

The extensive trek kicks off February 15th in Greensburg, Pennsylvania, and runs through April 6th in Nashville. Ticket pre-sales for select dates start Tuesday (November 22nd) at 10 a.m. ET using the code HEADLINE . Pick up tickets via Ticketmaster .

The outing launches shortly after the release of The Winery Dogs’ third full-length album, appropriately titled III . The opening track and lead single, “Xanadu,” will be available to those who pre-order the LP beginning December 9th.

While we can’t listen to the new song just yet, Portnoy describes it as a “barnburner.” Given the combined talent of the supergroup’s three virtuosos, we’ll take him for his word.

“It’s one of the fiercest tracks on the album,” Portnoy continued. “At the end there, you’re hearing me toss my sticks — not in frustration, but very much in satisfaction of what we had just done.”

The Winery Dogs have been active off-and-on over the years. Following their 2015 sophomore album Hot Streak , the group went on hiatus before reuniting for shows in 2019. It was during that run of dates where the band realized “a third album was definitely in the cards,” according to Portnoy.

Added Sheehan: “Getting back together like that was really refreshing. We could relax a bit and enjoy being together onstage, playing without any pressure. It was a beautiful thing.”

9 Dog Friendly Wineries in California

9 Dog Friendly Wineries in California

If you’re looking for dog friendly wineries in California that will roll out the red rug for your pooch, it is pretty easy to find them. Just whistle! You can dig up dozens that are pup-happy.

Do keep in mind that the emphasis is on friendly dogs and responsible, aware owners — translated, that means wagging tails at one end and you at the other with a poop bag and a leash.

Here are a few pooch friendly wineries to check out…

Dog Friendly California Wineries

Paso robles.

Tablas Creek : At the ready with dog bowls and treats. Well-behaved dogs are welcome on tours and there are vineyard dogs to play with.

Oak Mountain Winery ‬: Dogs on leashes are allowed into the tasting room. They hold many dog-themed charity events. They even have an entire label devoted to dogs (Windy Ridge) that supports groups that help diabetic and senior dogs from local animal shelters.

Santa Barbara

Fess Parker Winery : Allows dogs to run free on its huge lawn, but be sure to bring water for you pal.

Zaca Mesa Winery: Relax with Fido at the picnic tables or while playing a game of chess on their life sized board. Or, take the pup on the hiking trail!

V. Sattui – Nice to pups year round, it also has a “Pamper your Pooch” day with treats, photos, contests and more.

Starmont Vineyards : They go all out and provide Frisbees, tennis balls and organic dog biscuits.

Alexander Valley Vineyards : Walkies here. They are a doggie benefactor too — they held their first AVV Going to the Dogs benefit for Sonoma County Animal Care and Control last year.

Topel Winery : Dogs can go into the tasting room, for sure, for a doggie treat. Topel even asks you to submit photos of you and your dog posing with their wines for the calendar it sells benefiting Healdsburg Animal Shelter.

Mutt Lynch Winery : “Bark Less, Wag More” is their motto. They donate part of every wine sale to rescue organizations. You can reserve space for yappy hours, puppy showers, and pet birthday parties.

What about Gundlach-Bundschu? Gun-Bun always had dogs at the winery and a scattering of bungds around the grounds that guests could use to play fetch with the dogs.

Seven Of Our Favorite Most Dog Friendly Wineries In Northern California

Some of Northern California’s Most Dog Friendly Wineries

Taking time to stop and smell the roses.

As a dog lover and wine enthusiast, there’s nothing better than enjoying a glass of wine while surrounded by beautiful scenery and your furry best friend. Luckily, Northern California is home to some of the most dog-friendly wineries in the country. From stunning vineyards to pet-friendly tasting rooms, these wineries are sure to please both you and your pup.

As a 30 year veteran transformational guide and serial entrepreneur, my focus has always been on creating transformational experiences for people…  AND their dogs. 


Visiting the Embera With Our Dogs

As founders of Happy Tails Canine Adventure Tours we created an opportunity for people to travel with their dogs and really connect. The concept that was inspired when clients on a four day private camping tour to the San Blas Islands in Panama told us that although everything was amazing, our three dogs were the best part of the trip.

Destination Drivers is very dog friendly and clients are welcome to bring their canine sidekicks with them. Our mission is to provide a level of service that exceeds clients expectations and enhances their experience, even if that means making sure that your dog has such a good time that you get jealous. 

Dog Friendly Wineries and Dog Friendly Destination Drivers

DD David Blank and Sidekick for the Day, Slate

When clients ask if we’re dog friendly, our response is resoundingly yes! We tell them “We’ll even take them for a walk or hang out in the car with them if its too hot. Plus, we will even provide a “Dog-for-a-day” upon request.” 

We do charge a small additional fee for a “dog-for-a-day”, 100% of which is donated to a local animal rescue that we work with, training their rescue dogs in preparation for future adoption.

Here’s our list of our favorite Most Dog Friendly Wineries In Northern California:

1. jessie’s grove winery.

Dog Friendly Jessie's Grove Winery Owner Greg Burns

Jessie’s Owner Greg Burns with Destination Drivers Co-Owner Claudia Fabrega

Our number one choice is simple – Jessie’s Grove Winery in Lodi, California.

Jessie’s Grove is a fifth generation farm that planted its first wine grapes in 1886. Those vines are still alive and producing – 25 acres of the oldest Cinsaut vines in the world.

Besides outstanding wines from grapes grown on over 200 acres from many old and ancient vines, we love the environment of Jessie’s Grove and their outstanding team.

But the number one reason that Jessie’s is our favorite dog friendly winery is that Greg Burns – winemaker, owner, and Great-Great Grandson of founder Joseph Spenker – is such an animal lover and good guy that he allowed us to bury our Cattle Dog, Dozer on the property when he passed away in 2020 at the age of 17.


Needless to say we are regular visitors of Jessie’s Grove. We buy a bottle of wine and then spend an afternoon at Dozer’s grave with our other two dogs, toasting the love and joy that Dozer, the amazing hitch hiking dog brought into our lives.

I say hitch-hiking because Dozer ran out in front of my truck on my way home from work in 2004 in Taos, New Mexico and when I got out to chase him away, he ran around me and jumped into the open door of my truck and made himself at home. In the next 16 years he and I and my other Cattle Dog Max traveled through 10 countries in North, Central and South America together. 

So don’t miss a visit to Jessie’s Grove winery. A beautiful setting to enjoy great people with big hearts serving great wine.

2. Heritage Oak Winery

Heritage oak is our second favorite dog friendly winery. Besides great food and a welcoming staff, Heritage Oak has a walking trail that goes down to the Mokelumne River, a beautiful relaxing 25 minute stroll through the vineyards and old oak trees that ends on the river with several beautiful beaches to relax and enjoy a picnic and bottle of wine. 

With over 100 acres of vineyards on their estate farmed using sustainable farming practices, Heritage Oak Winery produces a variety of award-winning wines that showcase the unique characteristics of the Lodi appellation. Heritage Oak Winery uses cover crops, composting, and natural pest control methods to reduce their impact on the environment and promote healthy soil and vine growth.


Dogs Dozer & Margie with DD Co-owner Claudia and Heritage Oak Co-Owner Carmela

Visitors can enjoy tastings of the winery’s award-winning wines, including Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Zinfandel, and Cabernet Sauvignon. The tasting room is dog-friendly, so visitors can bring their furry friends to enjoy the beautiful surroundings as well.

Owner Tom Hoffman is an outstanding wine-maker and has a large selection of exceptional wines. His tasting room staff, primarily Hailey and Abby are friendly, knowledgable and welcoming, and Cusco the small black winery dog is always there to greet visitors.


Riley and DD Co-owner David Blank

I f all this weren’t enough, we have a soft spot for Heritage Oak Winery because the newest addition to our canine family, Riley the McNabb found us at Heritage Oak. Claudia and I were there picking figs from Tom’s enormous fig tree with our other dogs Dozer and Margie in October of 2019. Riley popped his head out from under a branch and instantly he and Margie began to play. He was a stray who just showed up. Like Dozer and Margie before him (Margie ran out in front of my truck looking for a ride at 2 months old in 2008 in the Republic of Panama), Riley seemed to be hitching a ride, and when Tom said he was a stray that needed a home, we invited him along for a ride and he’s been hanging with us ever since. 

3. M2 Winery

M2 Winery Co-owner Karen Montgomery

Number 3 on our list is M2 Winery, a boutique winery located in Lodi, California, that produces a variety of premium wines that reflect the unique terroir of the Lodi appellation. Winemaker and Co-owner Layne Montgomery and his wife Karen are big animal lovers and over the years they’ve produced many outstanding wines, some of which donate a large percentage of the proceeds to animal rescue. In addition to producing high-quality wines, M2 Wines is also known for their dog-friendly tasting room and outdoor patio, making it a great destination for wine lovers who want to bring their furry friends along for the ride.

One of the unique features of M2 Wines was their “Doggone Good Wine Club,” a wine club specifically designed for dog lovers.

The wines are also packaged in a dog-friendly format, with labels that feature dog-themed artwork and fun names such as “Tail Wagger” and “Furry Friend.” A portion of the proceeds from the Doggone Good Wine Club are donated to local animal rescue organizations, making it a great way to support a good cause while enjoying great wine.

In addition to tastings, M2 Wines also offers a variety of events and experiences for visitors, including private tastings, vineyard tours, and food and wine pairing events.

There’s a different food truck every week providing outstanding eats, or bring a picnic of your own.

5 Dog Friendly Wineries in Sonoma, California

Pet friendly patio at Belle Joli Winery Sparkling House in Sturgis, SD

Would you like to tour dog friendly wineries in Sonoma County, California? Then read on. Here are 5 particularly pet friendly wineries along with several others that also welcome dogs on the grounds. You’re sure to find some spots everyone will love!

Bottles of Wine with Dog labels - Visiting Sonoma's Dog Friendly Wineries

Located only an hour north of San Francisco, the Sonoma Valley is a great place to enjoy a pet friendly California vacation. And in recent years, wineries throughout Sonoma County have become more pet friendly.

In fact, many of the county’s over 400 wineries now welcome four-legged visitors. And some even offer special activities, like hiking. Others allow dogs to come inside the tasting room with you. And all the wineries listed here at least let your pet join you for a tasting on the patio.

What To Know Before You Go

If you have never been to a vineyard or tasting room, here are a few tips to help you make the most of your visit:

Reserve Your Spot

While some vineyards can take walk-ins, most require you to make reservations for a tasting in advance. When you call to make your reservation, tell them you’re bringing your pet. That way you’ll get the most up-to-date pet policies.

Most Tastings Cost Money

In popular wine regions, like Sonoma County, free tastings are mostly a thing of the past. Occasionally you’ll find a winery that will refund the tasting fee if you buy a certain amount of wine.

Use The Spit Bucket

Sadly, pets are not allowed on bus and limo tours of local wineries. So you’ll have to do the driving. But don’t put yourself or your pets in danger. Go ahead and use the offered spit bucket to sample wines without risking impairment.

Or better yet, assign a designated driver. And make sure you buy them a bottle to enjoy later!

Drinking plenty of water, getting something to eat, or packing a picnic will also help if you’re doing tastings at more than a couple of wineries in a day.

Temptations For Your Dog

If your dog is already comfortable dining on a pet friendly patio, you might think visiting a winery will be similar. But remember, vineyards are farms.

Biodynamic wineries usually have farm animals on site that help them maintain the grounds. And some vineyard owners have dogs of their own. If your dog would be upset by these encounters, be sure to ask about other animals on the grounds when making your reservations.

Some wineries also have fun activities, like games available. If your dog loves chasing moving objects, a winery with bocce courts might not be the best one to visit.
