We are sad to share that our beloved Newfoundland, Barnabas, has passed away. Barney was one of the most loving and gentle dogs we have ever had the pleasure of raising. He loved the winery, our guests, and our children very much. Barney lived an amazing life and brought us great happiness and love. He lived a long life for his breed and passed away peacefully in our arms and will be missed every day.
To honor and remember him we plan to picture him on our new brewery's beer labels.
