WALKING IN VINEYARDS
They say that every good vineyard needs three key ingredients; grapes, warm sun and a dog. For centuries, dogs have been faithful companions of wine makers, not just for company during every sun-warmed stroll through the groves, but also to help detect insects which might destroy a crop. Nowadays, specialist vineyards are leading the way in offering boutique day-care and spa facilities for your dog-about-town while you sit back and enjoy a relaxing wine-tasting under the sun. Surround yourself with the earthy scent of Mediterranean herbs, warmed tomato leaves and hazy afternoons.
