Yappy Hour at Bowers Harbor Vineyard


Release party for Bowers Harbor Vineyard’s newest dog wine!

Vote for Bowers Harbor Vineyards next Wine Dog on Saturdays, May 20- June 10 by donating to your favorite Cherryland Humane Society dog’s entry box. The dog with the most cash at the end will be honored with a custom label on our Henry Red wine, taking his place next to Otis, Brix, Cooper, and Henry!
